World Vets triodulce1eam will provide a three day large scale sterilization campaign in the nearest town of Livingstone and get to and from the clinic location via boat! Accommodations, meals and all ground transportation included as it relates to the project itinerary. Read more

 

2013 Project Spotlight: Ecuador

EcuN36With support from Fondation Brigitte Bardot, PAE – Ibarra and local municipalities, World Vets has been providing regular high volume spay/neuter services in Ecuador since 2009. Spanning the last four years, World Vets has sent 10 veterinary teams (about 150 volunteers) to Ecuador which has brought veterinary care to animals that would otherwise have none.  We have also secured agreements with the municipalities of both Ibarra and Otavalo. These agreements stipulate that they will not carry out poisoning campaigns in exchange for our free spay/neuter services for EcuN52 editcommunity animals. This is one of our most successful small animal projects to date.

We have an upcoming volunteer opportunity on this project. We will be sending a team to Otavalo, Ecuador in July 2013 to provide a large scale spay/neuter campaign. Read more about this opportunity here

2013 Project Spotlight: St. Eustatius

Statia46editThis year World Vets is continuing its assistance to the Department of Agriculture in St. Eustatius; a small island located in the Netherland Antilles in the Caribbean. In 2012 World Vets sent a preliminary team to the island where they conducted a pilot project. The objective of their visit was to help the island contain its ever growing animal population. Our team provided castrations to both donkeys and small animals. They also visited the island`s livestock facilities to assess overall health and identify any prevalent ailments.

Statia13In 2013 World Vets will send two follow up teams. These teams will further contribute to the goal of having an animal population that is sustainable for the island. One team will address small animal health and population and another to address livestock and the roaming donkey population. Both projects have volunteer opportunities available:
