Disaster Alert: Bosnia / Serbia Flood

Massive flooding in Bosnia and Serbia has left millions of animals and people in a dire situation and in desperate need for help.  World Vets has deployed to the region to provide support for animals that have been impacted by this disaster.  Thousands of animals have died from the immediate impact of the floods, but many more livestock and companion animals require urgent assistance. Animals are often not the primary focus during massive disasters and World Vets is committed to bridging this gap and helping them during their greatest time of need.  We depend on your help to provide life saving support for these animals.

World Vets brings veterinary services to the “End of the World”

PG1Punta Gorda, often referred to as the “end of the world” by local inhabitants was the most recent location to benefit from World Vets assistance. As implied by its nickname, Punta Gorda, the southern most town in the country of Belize, very much feels disconnected, forgotten and lived a part from the rest of the country.

One of the major issues concerning animal welfare and health in the region relates to the inability of pet owners to pay for veterinary services. Consequently, the town has been PG34experiencing an exponential growth in the small animal population, in addition to the number of roaming and feral animals.

To help improve the lives of animals at the “end of the world”, World Vets carried out a small animal field service project in collaboration with the newly initiated local humane society.Together we provided, a very successful and first ever, large scale spay/neuter and animal health service campaign. What’s more, all services were provided at no cost to local pet owners.

We would like to thank our dedicated volunteers, all of the local support received as well as Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual sponsorship of our animal welfare efforts.
