Hello friends and family! I'm heading off to Colville, Washington over my spring break where I will be joining Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) to provide free veterinary care to a community that desperately needs it. I'm incredibly grateful to have this opportunity and I have no doubt that I will gain experience and skills necessary to help me on my path to becoming a vet! I'd like to take a second of your time and ask for you to donate to this wonderful organization via the link I've provided. The volunteers chosen, including myself, are trying to raise money to keep these services completely free and to help as many animals as possible! All of the money donated goes to support the RAVS core clinic programs. Here are a few examples of how your contribution can make a difference:
$10.00 Vaccines for one dog or cat
$25.00 Treat one dog for life-threatening tick-borne illness.
$35.00 Anesthetic and surgery supplies to provide spay/neuter for one dog / cat
$75.00 Life-saving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
$100.00 Spay/Neuter, vaccination and wellness care for one dog or cat
$250.00 Emergency surgery and aftercare for one seriously injured dog or cat
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance to those who have decided to donate!!!

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
