The Little Team that Could! Ecuador

During the month of April World Vets had a team in Ecuador. We anticipated this to be a challenging project as this is a very high volume clinic and our team was just half the normal size.

However, despite our limited volunteer force, our team well exceeded expectations in relation to the number of animal patients that could receive services. Working in two municipalities in Northern Ecuador, our little team was able to perform hundreds of free sterilization surgeries in just a short period of time. Needless to say we are thrilled at the outcome of this project!

We’d like to thank our tireless volunteers and leaders, PAE-Ibarra, the municipalities of Atuntaqui and Otavalo, as well as Fondation Brigitte Bardot for making this great effort possible!

 

Caribbean Sterilization Campaigns Completed

Animal recipients in Roatan, Honduras and Nevis (located in the West Indies) are benefiting from World Vets free veterinary services this month. World Vets has two veterinary teams deployed in these Caribbean locations where they are operating free sterilization and animal health campaigns.

We’d like to thank our volunteers, local partners, and their supporters, for the great turn out and the success of these campaigns! We’re also grateful for the support of Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual support of our animal welfare efforts.

“Team Roatan” Successfully Delivered despite Adverse Weather Conditions

This past week World Vets had a team on the island of Roatan, Honduras to provide free veterinary services for companion animals. With the “wet season” apparently not quite over, they experienced a couple of downpours during clinic days. Nevertheless, many animals were still in attendance and our team was able to successfully deliver services despite adverse weather conditions. Sterilization surgeries as well as health consultations to diagnose and treat a variety of ailments were provided.

We`d like to thank World Vets volunteers and local partners for an outstanding effort, in addition to Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual support of these much needed campaigns. World Vets has been committed to improving the overall health and well being of animals on the island of Roatan since 2008.

 

Training Local Veterinarians & Providing Veterinary Services in Paraguay

World Vets recently had a veterinary team in the landlocked South American country of Paraguay. One of the objectives of their visit was to provide free instruction for local veterinarians in performing spay/neuter surgeries. Another aim was to provide a high volume sterilization and animal health clinic for the poor barrios of Asuncion. During their visit, our team encountered very many sick animals requiring a variety of treatments and procedures. Nevertheless, they successfully executed both objectives, which benefited both local professionals in addition to the small animal population.

We would like to thank our team of dedicated volunteers, Fondation Brigitte Bardot as well as local partners Adoptame for their support and efforts that made this campaign possible.

 

Week Long Equine Welfare Clinics Finish up in Nicaragua

World Vets has been operating an equine welfare project, which provides free veterinary services to horses, in the Granada area for many years. We are thankful for the continual support of Fondation Brigitte Bardot of this ongoing endeavor.
