Rural Animal Veterinary Services (RAVS) is a partnership with the Humane Society that combines high quality veterinary field clinics (surgical and preventative care) to improve the health and welfare of animals in remote rural communities. This program not only provides veterinary care and education to rural communities but also provides veterinary students medical and surgical training with the supervision of veterinary volunteers.
Three years ago as a veterinary student I participated in one of these clinics and it was a life changing experience. I am happy to be volunteering again at the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe in South Daokota this June! Please donate!
"Each year, HSVMA Rural Area Veterinary Services (HSVMA-RAVS) provides more than $1.2 million in free veterinary care to more than 7,000 animals in under-served rural communities..."
