World Vets helps tens of thousands of animals in developing countries and many of these are homeless or street animals, often suffering from malnutrition and neglect. While it is always desired to adopt these animals to local families, the reality is that there just aren’t enough homes and World Vets volunteers can’t help but fall in love with many of them. A few of them are lucky enough to go home with a World Vets volunteer to a new and amazing life that they would not have otherwise known. All animals receive appropriate health evaluations and vaccinations before they travel. We are proud to have such compassionate volunteers on the World Vets team!
