Compassionate Couple Helps Animals on Their BIG Day!

Paige-All

Newlyweds Paige & Derek Lough share a love for animals. Paige is a Veterinarian and Derek is a Landscape Architect.  Together they live in Guelph, Ontario with their rescued dogs Lucy and Callie (pictured here) and cats Todd and Freddie.  For their big day they asked friends & family to contribute to World Vets and help animals in need around the globe!

Paige volunteered on a veterinary field project in Roatan with World Vets in 2016.  This experience inspired her to choose World Vets as a recipient of donations on her & Derek’s big day.  Paige explained, “I was inspired by the program, the amazing team I worked with, and the team leader in particular Winnie Neunzig.”  She is looking forward to her upcoming World Vets volunteer experience on the island of St.Vincent.

The generous pair had a wedding at Niagara on the Lake, Ontario on January 21st, 2017.  Friends and family of Derek & Paige raised $400 USD in honor of the couple!  This is enough funds to provide a complete health exam and spay/neuter surgery to six animals in need.  What’s more, the couple plans to match this value with an in-kind donation of much needed supplies.

We can’t express enough how thankful we are to have such compassionate supporters like Paige & Derek.  All funds raised by this event directly benefit World Vets and go towards the care of animals that would otherwise have no access to life-saving treatment.

Inviting friends & family to donate in your honor is a wonderful way of supporting the work that we do.  You can register any upcoming event, including weddings, graduations, and birthdays!  To make World Vets a part of your special day, click an image below!

Support our Nicaraguan Interns: Contribute to World Vets Internship Fundraiser

Since 2011, World Vets has provided free surgical training to Latin American veterinarians and upper level veterinary students at our Latin America Veterinary Training Center (LATC) located in Granada, Nicaragua. Short courses are offered year round and we also just launched extended learning opportunities for more in depth training.  This summer World Vets was excited to welcome three Latin American interns to the LATC team.  World Vets is currently training these interns in a structured, in-depth and supportive learning environment.  Through this 6 month internship, each participant will receive high quality instruction in surgical techniques, anesthesia, patient safety and comfort as well as pain management.  We strive to create a positive and low-stress learning environment that will advance the interns veterinary career and their ability to better care for their patients.  These services are provided free of charge to both the animals and interns.  We need your help to make these programs possible!  We invite you to sponsor the training of these future veterinary leaders. You can help our interns reach their goals and apply their gained knowledge towards helping the underprivileged animals of Latin America!

Take a moment to learn more about each intern and please consider making a contribution.
