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

A Record Breaking Success: Cusco, Peru

World Vets has been working in the Cusco region of Peru for almost six years.  During this time have we partnered, and actively collaborate, with locally practicing veterinarians, a well respected animal welfare organization in addition to municipal authorities. Though even despite the duration of our involvement, and the efforts of local partners, spay/neuter continues to be in high demand and much needed.

Our recent campaign was a great testament of this as our veterinary team worked tirelessly with local partners to provide hundreds of free sterilizations, among other surgeries, for local animals in need. In just three days time, over 350 surgical procedures were performed! This is an unbelievable accomplishment that surpasses the total number of sterilizations ever performed on a World Vets small animal project. This outstanding feat not only speaks to the continual demand and need for sterilization services in the area. It also highlights the dedication and passion of our volunteers, and local partners, to help as many animals as possible during a limited amount of time.

However, even though we specialize in providing high volume spay/neuter campaigns, we never lose sight of how critically important it is to provide a profound level of kindness and excellent care to each individual animal. We value patient safety and quality patient care and are proud to be able to facilitate skilled veterinary care for countless animal populations around the world.

Compassionate Couple Helps Animals on Their BIG Day!

Paige-All

J.F.Hannigan Photography

Newlyweds Paige & Derek Lough share a love for animals. Paige is a Veterinarian and Derek is a Landscape Architect.  Together they live in Guelph, Ontario with their rescued dogs Lucy and Callie (pictured here) and cats Todd and Freddie.  For their big day they asked friends & family to contribute to World Vets and help animals in need around the globe!

Paige volunteered on a veterinary field project in Roatan with World Vets in 2016.  This experience inspired her to choose World Vets as a recipient of donations on her & Derek’s big day.  Paige explained, “I was inspired by the program, the amazing team I worked with, and the team leader in particular Winnie Neunzig.”  She is looking forward to her upcoming World Vets volunteer experience on the island of St.Vincent.

The generous pair had a wedding at Niagara on the Lake, Ontario on January 21st, 2017.  Friends and family of Derek & Paige raised $400 USD in honor of the couple!  This is enough funds to provide a complete health exam and spay/neuter surgery to six animals in need.  What’s more, the couple plans to match this value with an in-kind donation of much needed supplies.

We can’t express enough how thankful we are to have such compassionate supporters like Paige & Derek.  All funds raised by this event directly benefit World Vets and go towards the care of animals that would otherwise have no access to life-saving treatment.

Inviting friends & family to donate in your honor is a wonderful way of supporting the work that we do.  You can register any upcoming event, including weddings, graduations, and birthdays!  To make World Vets a part of your special day, click an image below!
