Support Equine & Small Animal Care in Nicaragua

If you are looking for a way to directly support the veterinary care World Vets provides in the field, we’d like to introduce our first “project specific” fundraisers to benefit our program service efforts in Nicaragua.

Our equine welfare project has been in operation since 2010 and targets the working horse population in and around Granada, Nicaragua. This project facilitates year round de-worming, vaccinations, dental and hoof care, wound treatment and much more. As a result of this initiative, hundreds of horses receive much needed veterinary services each year – all at no cost to their owners. With your help we can continue to provide this care and contribute to the overall health and well being of working horses! Support our  Equine Welfare Project

In Granada we also facilitate free sterilization services for cats and dogs at our Latin America Veterinary Training Center (LATC). Each year we perform over 3,000 surgeries adhering to high patient care and safety standards and utilize modern equipment such as gas anesthesia, central oxygen and heart monitors. We also operate countless outreach clinics where we visit rural communities to provide free preventative care treatments for hundreds of animals who lack access to veterinary services. Support our Small Animal endeavors that are based out the LATC and contribute to a better life for the animals of Nicaragua

World Vets to be On Board 2016 Pacific Partnership Mission

World Vets has been the veterinary non-governmental organization (NGO) represented on two U.S. Navy led humanitarian aid missions since 2009.  These missions facilitate free medical, dental and veterinary services to nations located in the South Pacific, South East Asia, the Caribbean, and Central and  South America. World Vets contributes veterinary manpower and skills to accomplish the mission’s objectives by organizing volunteer opportunities for veterinary professionals.

The goal of these missions is to strengthen alliances, improve upon the capacity to deliver humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and finally to improve security cooperation among partner nations.

World Vets veterinary teams live on-board the designated ship for the mission and provide veterinary services onshore. Our teams work alongside and in collaboration with US Army vets and technicians as well as government agencies, educational institutions and local veterinarians and animal health care professionals in host nations.

Pacific Partnership is an annual U.S. Pacific Fleet humanitarian and civic assistance mission designed to work by, with and through host and partner nations, non-government organizations and international agencies to build partnerships and a collective ability to respond to natural disasters 

World Vets Contributes to Greater Understanding of CTVT

For many years World Vets has contributed to a study based out of the University of Cambridge. This study seeks to unravel the mystery of canine transmissible venereal tumor (CTVT) found in dog populations all over the world. We are happy to announce that the paper “Mitochondrial genetic diversity, selection and recombination in a canine transmissible cancer” has now been published with their current findings.

This year marks World Vets 10 year anniversary! For a decade it has been our mission to improve the health and well being of animals by providing veterinary aid and training in developing countries and by providing disaster relief worldwide. As the info-graphic below shows, in this time, we have undertaken 223 projects worldwide serving over 135,000 animals and providing close to 60,000 hours of veterinary training. What’s more, all services and training have been provided at no cost for beneficiaries.

Why do we do what we do? We strongly believe that all animals deserve kindness and compassion, as well as excellent care. As such, we strive to create a world where all animals have access to skilled veterinary care. To achieve this we operate many programs, most notably veterinary field projects which provide direct veterinary care, in addition to our training programs for students and veterinary professionals alike.

Our work not only depends on the generosity of individuals, foundations and public support. We also rely on volunteers to help us deliver veterinary services and training abroad.Though our programs, we provide countless international volunteer opportunities for veterinary professionals, students aspiring to this vocation and for the everyday animal lover who simply wants to travel with purpose. Since our inception we have deployed over 4500 volunteers with the mandate to make quality veterinary more accessible.

We graciously thank all of our supporters and dedicated volunteers who have been with us throughout the years. Together we have reached a great milestone! We look forward to continuing our work and having an even greater impact with your help!

Join the celebration and help us create a better world for Animals. There are many ways to help and be a part of World Vets mission to improve animal health worldwide. Learn about all the ways you can contribute to our cause here.
