Project VETS has been a godsend to several primate sanctuaries I have helped out with veterinary work -- the donated supplies were essential in providing veterinary care in remote areas where it was otherwise difficult to find supplies. In addition, companion animal hospitals I worked at in the US were so glad to have a quality organization to which they could donate supplies or equipment that they no longer needed but which was in good shape. Such a great organization!
What I love about Project V.E.T.S. is the uniqueness of what they have to offer, and how much it helps. Materials that would be otherwise wasted are going around the world to help animals in need. It is the best possible way to "recycle"! They also have a very dedicated staff whose love for animals and desire to help is clear to anyone who interacts with them.
Project V.E.T.S. continues to exceed expectations by reaching more non-profits worldwide that are all helping animals in their own ways. More supplies are shipped out each and every year and more and more groups are able to use these supplies in their treatment of animals large and small. I love that such a simple idea has expanded to help so many animals in so many different parts of the world.
Having worked in a small Thai animal sanctuary I know how fundamental organisations such as Project VETS can be. A lifeline and essential for helping animals with no other hope.
It has been eight years since Project V.E.T.S. first started securing equipment and supplies for veterinarians working in animal related non-profits. In that time, the number of organizations we help support has grown to 90 and they can be found in 50 different countries, including the U.S.. The impact on animal health and welfare is huge! As is the impact on our planet, keeping valuable medical resources out of landfills and instead placing them into the hands of those individuals making a difference in grass roots organizations around the globe. This is an incredible organization and I am proud to be on the board!
I am the Founder of Project V.E.T.S. and, although I am sure I am biased, I am constantly amazed and humbled by how much we have grown in seven years. We continue to reach out and partner with animal related non-profits, helping provide them with valuable veterinary equipment, technology and supplies. We currently partner with 78 organizations in 43 countries. I am so proud of our staff, board of directors, volunteers and donors! Each and every one of us makes a difference and together we are healing the planet one animal at a time!
I am a nurse and have donated car loads of medical supplies to this awesome nonprofit. I had the amazing opportunity to see their equipment in use with the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project in Rwanda and Uganda many years ago. They support a wide variety of animal programs all over the world and are my favorite non-profit to support
Project V.E.T.S. Is an organization with great heart dedicated with love for animals and respect for the earth. They do amazing work, making the world a better place for animals and those dedicated to their care. Saving landfills is a big plus!
Dr.. Candy Sayles Brad started with an idea for helping animals around the world while simultaneously helping to reduce waste of veterinary medical supplies. She and her board have worked tirelessly to make this vision into reality. Just take a look at their web site to see how far they have reached animals across the globe. Not able to donate equipment or supplies? They also appreciate cash donations so they can cover their shipping costs! I give them a 5* rating because their hearts have 5* passion for what they do.
The volunteers and staff at Project V.E.T.s are completely dedicated to their mission of helping non-profit animal clinics both nationally and internationally. Volunteering with them is both rewarding and fun. Furthermore, my husband and I feel that our financial donations to Project V.E.T.s are spent wisely.
