Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship

The Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship was formed by family friends and co-workers at MV Transportation to commemorate the life of Allesandra (AJ) and to continue her legacy of excellence and compassion towards animals. This scholarship will recognize one outstanding individual by honoring them with a 1-week paid project fee for a 2020 World Vets project.

AJ volunteered her time & skills helping the animals of Ecuador with World Vets.  She embodied all the characteristics needed to be a global ambassador for animal health and welfare.  Her excitement to have been just admitted into veterinary technician school was palpable; vowing to take her new skills and knowledge to help the most vulnerable amongst us. She was the kind of person who left an imprint wherever she roamed.

The Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship Fund opportunity is open to enrolled veterinary technician students or pre-vet students.

Scholarship & Eligibility details can be found here: Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship Fund Details

Application instructions can be found here: Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship Fund Application

The deadline for the Allesandra Lesho Memorial Scholarship Fund Application is Tuesday December 31, 2019.  The recipient will be notified by World Vets no later than January 15th, 2020. Contact info@worldvets.org with any questions.

Helping Rural Communities Access Veterinary Care | Peru 2020

One of the highlights of World Vets veterinary field work is our community outreach clinics. These engagements provide a rewarding opportunity for volunteers to interact with local members in the communities we serve as well as their animals.

This activity has been a staple of our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program, much to our student volunteers delight. While these mobile clinics provide an enriching volunteer experience, they also have a positive impact on rural communities by making quality care and veterinary services more accessible.

As part of community outreach, volunteers are involved in assisting with health consultations and administering vaccines and preventative health care to a variety of animal species. We also equip ourselves with basic medical supplies to address a range of medical conditions in the field.

Busy in Brazil! Hundreds of Animals Receive Veterinary Care

During the month of September we operated two veterinary service campaigns in Northeastern Brazil. These projects benefited not only dogs and cats, but horses as well. Hundreds of sterilizations were performed, which provided a great service for the community in helping to control the street dog and cat population. It also provided relief to local animal rescuers who struggle to afford the cost of spay/neuter for all of the animals they care for.

Countless horses also received veterinary care as part of our efforts in Brazil. A large portion of equine beneficiaries were carriage and cart horses, as well as those rescued and housed at rehabilitation centers.

We would like thank Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of our Brazilian campaigns this year. We also thank our dedicated volunteers and local partners for contributing their skills, energy and passion toward helping animals in need!
