World Vets Impact on Pets Affected by Midwest Tornado

Earlier last month World Vets covered the story of `Maggie`, a dog that went missing and was then discovered, after a devastating tornado in the American Midwest.  Upon hearing of the disaster World Vets pledged financial support to Teegarden Veterinary Clinic who helped pets like Maggie and pets belonging to owners who were in a hardship situation because of the disaster.

We are very happy to share that our financial contribution directly impacted many pets at this clinic be treated and recover from their injuries. Aside from `Maggie`, other patients were `Dexter` and a cat named`Stewart`. `Stewart`s` family had been looking for him after the tornado destroyed their home and ten days later they called the clinic to report he had been found. He was soon brought in to receive attention.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our disaster response fund this year. As Sarah Ripper, CVT, from Teegarden Veterinary Clinic has told us, `being able to tell owners they don`t have to worry about the cost of treatment has been a real blessing for us and our owners`




World Vets Helps Animals Impacted by Tornado in Oklahoma, USA

942279_10151369423591571_720522014_nIn response to the tornado that hit Oklahoma this month, World Vets teamed up with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and BlogPaws to help animals impacted by the disaster.

World Vets set up a tornado relief fundraiser that provided direct support to three organizations operating in the area. The recipient organizations were the Central Oklahoma Humane Society, the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Relief Fund and the Pampered Pets Veterinary Clinic Disaster Relief. We also sent a  truckload of veterinary and pet 941767_10151373418956571_1194790480_nsupplies that were delivered as part of a shipment organized by local Fargo, North Dakota TV station Valley News Live. These donated supplies were set up next to the “Reunion Facility” for owners that had been recently reunited with their pets to “shop” for food, crates, toys and more.

A huge thank you is in order to all of those who have supported us and our partners; BlogPaws, American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and Pet360, and everyone who contributed to our tornado relief fundraiser – it made a huge difference in the lives of both pets and pet owners affected by the disaster.
