This summer we had our volunteer from Riverside, California participate in our animal health project. She was able to shadow and assist veterinarians in a local vet clinic and help clean and feed wild rescued animals in a zoo. Our volunteer stated “Taking part in the Animal Health Project was an amazing opportunity. I gained hands-on experience as part of the team. The local veterinarians were a great help in teaching me how to treat animals such as giving vaccines and taking part in a surgery. I was able to witness the love these people have for their pets and feel the gratitude when I helped their animals”. To conclude the project, a vet campaign was held for the community of Alto Trujillo providing free rabie vaccines, anti-parasite oral medication and anti-flea spray. Our awesome volunteer and with the help of a local vet vaccinated 33 dogs and 2 cats. It was a fun day to see the members of their community bring their furry family members to keep them healthy!
