Helping Pets Across the Globe During the Pandemic

From 2020 through 2022 World Vets delivered care to pets across the globe during the global pandemic. Thousands of pets benefited from much needed medical and surgical care that would not have otherwise been possible.  From fixing broken legs, to treating cancer to skin and ear and infections to providing life-saving treatment for poisonings, our veterinarians and local partners brought care to those who needed it most.  Our last big campaign of the pandemic aid program is coming up next week in Cambodia where a World Vets team will be setting up mobile clinics at several Pagodas in and around Siem Reap Cambodia where we have worked for several years with local animal welfare groups.

Helping Pets on the Galapagos Islands

World Vets operates a full service veterinary clinic for dogs and cats on the Galapagos Islands, offering a full range of medical, surgical, diagnostic and preventive health care services for island pets as well as large scale sterilization campaigns. We are grateful to the many volunteers, staff, sponsors and supporters who have contributed to the ongoing success of the clinic that provides services free of charge to island pets. Over 1700 patients have been served at the clinic in the last year including over 1300 sterilization surgeries. These efforts are not only helping pets but also play an important role in protecting the local wildlife population. The clinic, which opened in November 2021, was made possible by the financial support of Lakefield Veterinary Group, the founding sponsor of the clinic. We appreciate the cooperation and collaboration with with several agencies including Galapagos Conservancy, ABG, Animal Balance, and the Municipality of San Cristobal. The clinic is staffed year round and we also have volunteer veterinary teams throughout the year.   Are you interested in volunteering with World Vets in the Galapagos Islands?

While the war and crisis in Ukraine continues, thousands of refugees have left their homes and are fleeing to safety in surrounding countries. The situation has displaced hundreds of dogs, cats, and other cherished pets – many in need of food, shelter, and veterinary care.

We know many in World Vets’ community share our concern for the pets and people of Ukraine. World Vets is mobilizing its international aid network and organizing funds and resources to assist pets in need.

Dr. Marty Becker, veterinarian, founder of the “Fear Free” movement, and member of World Vets’ Advisory Board, is heading near the Ukrainian borders of Romania and Moldova to coordinate efforts with our existing local partners in these two countries. Through these partners, World Vets will be providing ongoing free veterinary services to pets from Ukraine that are in need of care.

As World Vets steps in to help, we are asking our supporters to contribute to our efforts. We urge you to join us in this special mission to provide essential veterinary aid and support.

 

This fundraiser has ended.  Thank you to all who donated.
