Hi everyone! I'm packing my stethescope and scrubs and heading off to Turtle Mountain, North Dakota in August. While on my trip I will be able to provide FREE veterinary care to a community that desperately needs it. Vacation? ...more like Spaycation! For a week, I will be able to provide wellness care, spay/neuter, and treat a wide range of illnesses to more than one thousand animals! On this journey, I'm joining Rural Veterinary Services (RAVS) where I will get one of the most valuable veterinary learning experiences in my path towards becoming a veterinarian.
I would greatly appreciate anyone who can support my journey and the work of RAVS by donating to our cause. All of the funds raised will go towards helping animals within this underserved community. Any amount helps! For example, a $10 donation can provide vaccines for a dog or cat, $25 can treat a life threatening tick-borne illness, and $100 can provide spay/neuter, vaccination, and wellness care for a dog or cat.
Thank you so much for supporting my journey and helping me save and provide a better life to our four-legged friends in Turtle Mountain!

In August of 2019, RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to northern North Dakota for 5 days of field clinics on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Reservation. 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 this remote community 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 Turtle Mountain. https://tmchippewa.com/
