World Vets has been working in the Cusco region of Peru for almost six years. During this time have we partnered, and actively collaborate, with locally practicing veterinarians, a well respected animal welfare organization in addition to municipal authorities. Though even despite the duration of our involvement, and the efforts of local partners, spay/neuter continues to be needed on a very large scale.
Our recent campaign was a great testament of this as our veterinary team worked tirelessly with local partners to provide hundreds of free sterilizations, among other surgeries, for local animals in need. In just three days time, over 350 surgical procedures were performed! This is an unbelievable accomplishment that surpasses the total number of sterilizations ever performed on a World Vets small animal project. This outstanding feat not only speaks to the continual demand and need for sterilization services in the area. It also highlights the dedication and passion of our volunteers, and local partners, to help as many animals as possible during a limited amount of time.
However, even though we specialize in providing high volume spay/neuter campaigns, we never lose sight of how critically important it is to provide a profound level of kindness and excellent care to each individual animal. This is simply impossible to do, especially when you witness the love and dedication that an owner has for their pet.The boy pictured below traveled almost 2 hours with his dog so that she could be spayed by our team. He was with her through the whole process and even provided her comfort in recovery. Now that is true love and dedication.

Customized Volunteer Experience for Groups in Nicaragua
If you are a student group, veterinary corporation and/or veterinary practice looking to volunteer abroad, look no further. World Vets is able to provide a custom trip for groups in Nicaragua! This past month we ran a One Health inspired project for veterinary students from Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM).
As part of this experience, they combined one week of clinic with another week out in the field treating all animal types and even helped us to gather baseline data which will contribute to our monitoring and measurement capabilities of animal health in the area.
Later this year we are hosting a veterinary cooperate group who will take part in a small animal field clinic and rabies vaccination campaign to celebrate World Rabies Day (Sept 28).
