Hi friends and family!
As most of you know I am enjoying my second year of vet school at St. Georges University, and can't seem to stay away from volunteering and shelter work. I'm excited to announce that I have been given an amazing opportunity to gain experience and give back by participating in a clinic held by Rural Area Veterinary Service (RAVS). So this summer I pack my bags and head to White Mountain Apache Reserve in Arizona for a week to do what I love most :)
RAVS is a nonprofit organization that strives to provide veterinary care for those who in rural areas who desperately need it. I will be joining a team of about 30 veterinary students, and 15 professional volunteers to offer free spay/neuter and wellness care for hundreds of animals that otherwise don't have access to medical help.
In order to provide quality care at no cost we need your help!
So what do your donations support?
Free life saving medical care, and preventative care for a community in need.
$10- Vaccines for one dog or cat
$25- Treats one dog for life-threatening tick-borne illness
$35- Anesthetic and surgery supplies for one spay/neuter
$75- Life-saving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
$100- Spay/Neuter, vaccines, and wellness care for one dog or cat
$250- Emergency surgery and aftercare for one seriously injured dog or cat
In addition to vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries for 100’s of animals, we will also be treating animals with life-threatening diseases such as parvo, distemper, and tick-borne illnesses.
Please consider donating in support of my journey, but also to help RAVS continue their great work. Veterinarians, and dedicated veterinary staff donate weeks of their year to help, but can only continue to do so if they have the funding to provide this life saving care.
