This week I had the pleasure of volunteering at a spay & neuter clinic with the organization World Vets. One of the things I wanted to do while living here in Nicaragua was continue my volunteer work. There are so many opportunities to give back here, its easy to find a non profit already in place who is caring for a cause that interests you. If you’re interested, check out the “Humanity” page of this website.
World Vets is a non profit organization who constructs teams of veterinarians to hold pet health clinics in developing countries around the world, where people’s access to pet healthcare is challenging. Their vision is “to create a world where all animals have access to skilled veterinary care” by providing not only the spay, neuter, & medical treatment clinics, but also supplying disaster relief and training where needed.
World Vets not only came with a fantastic team of veterinarians, vet techs, and assistants, but were also prepared with bilingual staff to help translate important information to the owners of the pets. They were able to preform over 240 surgeries and countless consultations in just 3 days. Working in an old, nearly abandoned community center and a horse stable house. The team was stocked with medicine for a variety of ailments. Every animal seen was given an anti flea & tick topical as well as an oral anti parasite medication.
If you’re looking for an amazing organization to donate to, World Vets is a fantastic option!
