Hi friends and family!
I’m so excited to announce that im heading off to Colville, WA in March 2019 where I’ll get to help provide free veterinary care to a community that desperately needs it. I’m joining Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) where I’ll get one of the most valuable veterinary learning experiences in my path towards becoming a veterinarian. Ill be working long hours along side many talented veternarians to help as many animals in need as we can. RAVS is a non profit organization that helps over 8,000 animals a year, but they cannot do it without your help. Any donation is much appreciated and will go towards a great cause! Thank you all so much!
Here is a quick break down of what your donation will be going to:
- $10: Vaccines for one dog and cat
- $25: Treat one dog for life-threatening tick-borne ilness
- $35: Anesethic and surgery supplies to provide spay/neuter for one dog/cat
- $75: Life-saving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
- $100: Spay/neuter, vaccination and wellness care for one dog or cat
In March of 2019, RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to head Washington State for 5 days of field clinics on the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. The team will offer free spay/ neuter and wellness care to hundreds of animals in these remote communities where regular veterinary care is not available. In addition to wellness services, RAVS’ volunteers will care for animals with a wide range of health concerns including puppies suffering from parvovirus and distemper infections and older animals suffering from multiple infirmities. We will help animals with old traumatic injuries and festering wounds, returning them to a happier life with their family. While providing this care, our volunteers and staff will be educating the family on animal care and public health, helping to make the community a better place for the animals and the people of the Colville Reservation. http://www.colvilletribes.com
