Another successful project in Loreto, Mexico

>A World Vets team has just wrapped up yet another successful project sterilizing dogs in Loreto, Mexico.  Several times a year we send teams to this fishing village on the Sea of Cortez to work with Animalandia, a local animal welfare group under the leadership of Lucy Gonzales.  Our friends at Animalandia are always so good to us and share some great hospitality ever time we come.  We are happy to provide ongoing support to this very worthy group.

World Vets in Romania

>World Vets sent its first team to Romania in October, 2009.  Fourteen volunteers coordinated a large scale sterilization campaign at a local shelter, providing treatment to working horses and training to local veterinarians.  In addition, the team spent a day working on a Romanian Army base providing sterilization surgeries to every animal on the compound.  A major milestone of this project was the signing of a formal treaty between the city of Buzau Romania, World Vets and local animal welfare groups.  Dr Cathy King and the Mayor of Buzau, Romania signed the treaty on a nationally televised news conference.
