During the month of November World Vets had three veterinary teams in three different Asian countries. We provided free high volume sterilization campaigns in Laos, Cambodia and Nepal respectfully. Each project was unique in its own way, though as part of each campaign we not only performed free spay/neuter, but also provided free rabies vaccinations for animal patients. This was important to include as part of our free services as rabies is still prevalent in these countries, and it is essential to aid local efforts in eradicating this fatal virus.
This was our first time working in Laos. Our campaign was met with a great result and promise for future efforts.
In Cambodia our local partnerships continue to grow and in turn made additional services available for animal patients this year such as free microchipping.
And in Nepal, our free services continue to benefit the street dog population of Kathmandu, which provide not only sterilization, but other much needed veterinary care.
In 2019 we will be continuing these projects, so look out for volunteer opportunities to these locations next year!
