World Vets Contributes to Civil - Military Humanitarian Aid Missions

One of World Vets ongoing programs is our collaboration with the US Navy in delivering humanitarian aid. This
civil - military partnership spans over six years and has World Vets contribute veterinary expertise, skill, and manpower to achieve mission objectives.
World Vets is represented on two US Navy led humanitarian aid missions: Pacific Partnership and Continuing Promise. This summer we have veterinary teams on both missions where they are traveling on board hospital ships, working alongside US Army veterinary personnel and providing services and training onshore in host nations.
This partnership has allowed us to expand our reach and help many animals in remote locations. It has also afforded us the opportunity to work with, train, as well as support, veterinary professionals and institutions operating in the countries visited.
As part of these annual missions, World Vets veterinary teams benefit countless communities within Latin America and the Caribbean, in addition to the South Pacific, and South East Asia.

During the month of June World Vets continued its small animal project in Peru.
For several years we have been partnering with Pataz Pro-Animalista Cusco and local municipalities to provide free veterinary services for animals in need. Our most recent campaign facilitated over 200 sterilizations, and helped hundreds of animals. We return in August to benefit even more!
We'd like to thank Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their ongoing support of these campaigns and to all of our wonderful veterinary volunteers who work very hard to provide great care for all of the patients.
A donation to World Vets keeps our veterinary and training programs running. It also makes a difference in the lives of all the animals impacted by our aid worldwide each year. With your support we can continue to help these animals in need.
