Compassionate Couple Helps Animals on Their BIG Day!

Paige-All

J.F.Hannigan Photography

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!

Over the course of 5 years we have successfully performed over 12,000 sterilizations & trained hundreds of Latin American veterinarians and senior vet students. Thanks to your support, this professional training is provided at no cost for trainees.

World Vets Celebrates 10 Years!

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.
