We are dedicated to improving the health and welfare of animals around the world. We achieve this goal by collecting veterinary equipment, technology and supplies (V.E.T.S.) from veterinary hospitals, zoological societies, human hospitals and medical equipment/supply manufacturers. These donated items are then distributed worldwide to veterinarians working in non-profit or non-governmental organizations devoted to animal health. In this way, we not only help the animals of our planet, but we also conserve valuable resources that might otherwise end up in a storage facility or landfill.
In five years, we have collected over $280,000 worth of supplies and are currently distributing supplies to veterinarians working in 78 non-profits and non-governmental organizations in 43 countries.
Veterinarians, shelter workers and those working directly with animals in need.
Direct beneficiaries per year:
thousands of companion animals, wildlife and working animals who needed emergency care, preventive treatment and general wellness exams. In addition, the veterinarians and care workers serving these animals had access to additional supplies and equipment.
Geographic areas served:

Project VETS is a brilliant organization that fills a critical niche that no one else has recognized as a need for the animals and our planet. What better concept is there than accepting donations of medical supplies and redistributing them (for free) to those that need them most? It is recycling and redistribution at its very best. What one society does not want can absolutely be used to help animals in other societies or communities.
Animal Balance has worked with Candy and her fantastic team at Project VETS for many, many years now. They kindly provide our NGO will critical medical supplies that we take with us to other countries who are in desperate need. We are on a tight budget and so when we can receive syringes, IV lines and more from Project VETS, it allows us to use our funds for other essential medicines for the animals in places like the Dominican Republic, Cabo Verde Africa, Bahamas, Galapagos, Samoa and more. Project VETS allows our donor dollars to go further, which means we save more lives and reduce the cruelty and suffering of animals worldwide more efficiently.
All of us at Animal Balance from around the world congratulate Project VETS and thank them for the essential, critical role that they provide to organizations like ours. They are a joy to work with and we are delighted to be given this opportunity to tell everyone about their awesome work. Thank you Project VETS.

Having spent my professional career working in the healthcare field, I know the amount of equipment and supplies that quickly becomes outdated is huge. There's always new technology that comes along and makes things obsolete while the piece of equipment is still serviceable and useful. It makes good sense in so many ways to have an organization that marries the two ends of this spectrum -- those groups that have a need but not the funds or the ability to purchase the equipment and supplies with the entities that need to get rid of equipment and supplies. Project V.E.T.S. saw the opportunity to make this happen and is making it happen. Bravo for Project V.E.T.S.!
I've worked closely with Project V.E.T.S. over the years and have been in awe of their reach for such a small non-profit. So many animals, all over the world, have been helped by this small group of dedicated and hard working people who want to make a difference. With passion and focus, they have achieved so much!
Project V.E.T.S. is a wonderful organization offering a valuable service. The people that work there are caring and passionate and I hope they get more recognition, and donations!, for the important work they are doing.
They do amazing work to help animals all over the world.
Thank you very much Project VETS for your huge support for our charity in Romania and also so many others worldwide! You are brilliant!
We have donated to this organization and it is great!! Recycling at its best!!!
Since the animals can't ask for help or write a grant, it falls on Project V.E.T.S. to circulate the tools of the veterinarians to out of the way places where replaced equipment is needed and welcomed. Makes everyone look good. :~)
I was dumbfounded when I can across this group, only because I wondered why it hadn't been more widely publicized. It's mission is at the heart & soul of veterinary medicine- to help those who cannot help themselves.
I've worked at several clinics in my 13 yrs as a vet tech & have friends at several more. We all get items donated by local Dr offices & hospitals. With a combination of these items, our surplus of unused items & equipment collecting dust, already limited storage gets even smaller.
Project VETS is the perfect solution for both clinics like us with surplus of unneeded items taking up space & low income or volunteer groups without means to acquire the very items that may be piled in numerous veterinary storage closets collecting dust.
I cannot express enough how vital the work this group is doing to help us spread the supplies to the demand.
Kudos Project VETS and God Bless
It is wonderful to be able to find a new home for the materials that can no longer be used at our small animal hospital but that are very much still "usable"! Materials that are about to expire but that are certainly safe to continue to use. I love that Project VETS can find a new home for these items and that we are helping animals miles and miles from our own little hospital.
