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.
Director and Founder
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!
Project vets is an awesome non-profit, they fill a crucial need and hope to work with them many more times in the future! One of the leanest non-profits I have come across too!
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.
We in Africa, greatly benefit from Project Vets and we would not be able to serve the animals or the poor communities as well as we have managed with the support from project vets. Thanks Project Vets for the all the support to All Creatures Animal Welfare League in Malawi
I was introduced to PV, attended a fund raiser and immediately was working to figure out a way to partner with them and line them up with other partners. It is such a good and authentic cause. Whether your passion is with the animals, saving our planet or the people helped, it is a fantastic cause. I worked with Meghan Curtis who is a joy.
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!
