Hundreds Benefit from Sterilization Campaigns in South East Asia

During the month of November, World Vets held two high-volume sterilization campaigns in Laos and Cambodia. On both projects combined, we performed close to a thousand spay/neuter surgeries,  all provided free of charge. On each campaign, free rabies vaccinations were also provided for animal patients. Given that rabies is a serious health concern in these countries, we actively take part in its prevention with every veterinary event.

We are extremely grateful for our dedicated volunteers, local partners as well as donors and supporters for making these campaigns possible!

Recruiting Veterinary Team! Pacific Partnership 2020

World Vets will recruit a small veterinary team to contribute veterinary manpower and skills to accomplish the veterinary objectives of civil – military mission Pacific Partnership 2020. Our team will work alongside, and in collaboration with, US Army vets and techs as well as local government officials and animal health care professionals in the host nation of the Solomon Islands. Find out more!

Pacific Partnership is an annual U.S. Pacific Fleet humanitarian and civic assistance mission designed to work by, with and through host and partner nations, non-government organizations and international agencies to build partnerships and a collective ability to respond to natural disasters.

IMPORTANT: This is a veterinary expedition-style mission that is based “on the ground” for the duration of the event. There is no Navy ship and/or hospital ship involved.

**World Vets team will be selected/finalized by late January 2020. Should you wish to be considered, please send your information no later than December 31, 2019**

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

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.
