World Vets Teams Return from Asia

During the month of November World Vets had three veterinary teams in three different countries in Asia. We provided free high volume sterilization campaigns in Laos, Cambodia and Nepal respectfully. Each project was unique in its own way, though as part of each campaign we not only performed free spay/neuter, but also provided free rabies vaccinations for animal patients. This was important to include as part of our free services since rabies is still prevalent in these countries, and we felt it essential to aid local efforts in eradicating this fatal virus.

This was our first time working in Laos and our campaign was met with a great result and promise for future efforts.

In Cambodia our local partnerships continue to grow and in turn made additional services available for animal patients this year such as free microchipping.

And in Nepal, our free services continue to benefit the street dog population of Kathmandu to provide not only sterilization, but other much needed veterinary care.

Successful Pilot Project Executed in Brazil

This month we had a veterinary team in northeastern Brazil to provide a free high volume sterilization campaign as well as surgical instruction to local veterinarians. This was our first time working in the country and feel it was quite successful with 500 + surgeries being performed and 20 + veterinarians benefiting from training.

We’d like to thank our dedicated volunteers for a tireless yet rewarding project, Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of this endeavor as well as our local partners. See more pictures

World Vets Continues its Commitment to Animals in Albania

World Vets has been working in Albania for many years to provide sterilization services at no cost in various communities to help control the dog and cat population.

This past month World Vets had a team in Shkoder, Albania to provide a high volume sterilization campaign. Our free veterinary services benefited feral and free roaming cats as well as street dogs. Almost 200 animals received care during this visit. We’d like to thank our dedicated volunteers as well as local partners for another successful campaign!

Our next visit to Albania is scheduled for April 2019. We still have volunteer positions open – find out more
