World Vets volunteers help hundreds of animals over Spring Break

This past month World Vets had veterinary teams in five different countries providing free veterinary services for animals in need.

We had teams in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Ecuador carrying out high volume sterilization campaigns benefiting underserved populations of dogs and cats.

We also had a team in Honduras facilitating annual health exams and treatments to wildlife and exotic species, in addition to students in Nicaragua taking part in our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program.

Custom|Corporate Veterinary Trips with World Vets

World Vets has partnered with Lakefield Veterinary Group to provide their team members with an international experience which allows them to give back and help animals in need. What’s more, this opportunity not only helps to foster their corporate culture of “do the right thing”, it also gives employees the chance to meet and work with other members of the Lakefield “family”.

If you are looking for a similar opportunity where your staff, colleagues and/or team members can give back, please write to trips@worldvets.org

World Vets to Increase Veterinary Assistance for Small Animals in Asia

World Vets consistently works in all regions of the world, however our veterinary assistance has predominately been focused in Latin America and the Caribbean. Asia on the other hand, has been a region of the world that we have assisted periodically, though on a smaller scale. In 2018 this is about to change!

We are excited to announce that we will be ramping up our veterinary assistance for small animals in select countries in Asia. With that being said, we will also have more volunteer opportunities in the coming year in this region of the world. Stay tuned and stay glued to our upcoming volunteer opportunities
