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!

World Vets IVM Program in a New Location!

The International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program  is World Vets official student program. It provides students with an opportunity to receive one on one instruction in relation to the preparation, execution and recovery of patients from spay and neuter surgery. Students stand to benefit from this multi – disciplinary training and cultural experience as it will enhance their education and give them a broader understanding of international veterinary medicine.  Read more

World Vets Team Helps Wildlife in Honduras

This summer World Vets had a veterinary team in Roatan, Honduras to provide free veterinary services for wildlife and exotics.

A big issue in this particular region is the Illegal pet trade and the trafficking of wildlife. As such, the government faces a huge challenge with managing confiscated or abandoned animals. A temporary solution is finding wildlife sanctuaries that can care for these animals with the combination of sustainable tourism and education. These facilities are in turn accredited by the government and as a rule, do not buy or sell wildlife. For this project, World Vets partnered with these operations to provide needed veterinary care. The majority of our work during this campaign included exams, blood work, parasite testing and treatment and some minor surgical procedures.

We would like to thank our outstanding team of passionate professionals and students! We would also like to extend our gratitude to Maya Key, the Governor of the Bay Islands and the Director of the Wildlife Health Department for their support and collaboration.
