This coming June 2019, at the end of my 2nd year of veterinary school, I will have the amazing oppurtunity of volunteering with RAVS in Arizona on the White Mountain Apache Reservation for 6 days of field clinics. Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) is a nonprofit program that offers free wellness care which includes everything from routine vaccines and spays/neuters to other health concerns where these animals may not get routine health care due to the remote community they live in. This means RAVS relies soley on grants, indiviual contributions, and other fundraising efforts in order to continue to provide free veterinary care for these animals.
By donating, your contribution will go towards the following types of care:
$10 - Vaccines for one dog or cat
$25 - Treats one dog for life-threatening tick-borne illness
$35 - Anesthetic and surgery supplies to spay/neuter one dog or cat
$75 - Lifesaving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
$100 - Spay/neuter, vaccination, and wellness care for one dog or cat
$250 - Emergency surgery and aftercare for one seriously injured dog or cat
Any contribution to RAVS will not only help support my veterinary education and passion for providing healthcare to animals in communities of need, but you will also help provide tremendous life changing support for hundreds of animals and their owners.
Please consider donating to RAVS to support their incredible and continuous work of helping animals in need or even simply sharing on Facebook if you cannot. The fur babies thank you and I am grateful and excited for this new adventure.
