In June of 2019, RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to South Dakota visiting the Lower Brule and Pine Ridge Reservations. The team of roughly 30 veterinary students and 15 professional volunteers will offer free spay/neuter and wellness care to more than 1,000 animals in these remotes 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 Lower Brule and Pine Ridge.
