Soy parte de una organización en Paraguay que se llama Adoptame con amor y responsabilidad, nosotros soiicitamos la visita de World Vets y este año en setiembre tuvimos la grata oportunidad de recibir al equipo y trabajar con ellos en favor de los animales del Bañado, una de las zonas urbanas más pobres de la capital.
El sentimiento en común de otros voluntarios como yo fue de admiración hacia la profesionalidad, entrega, solidaridad y cariño sincero hacia los animales que en todo momento demostraron todos y cada uno de los miembros del equipo. Cada día terminaba con veterinarios acostados entre las mantas que cubrian a los animales para darles más calor y ayudarlos a recuperarse.
Nuestra organización tenía un poco de experiencia realizando jornadas de castración ya que sabemos que es el único camino posible para evitar tantos animales abandonados en las calles, pero la experiencia de World Vets nos ayudó a cambiar los protocolos de anestesia, a lograr una mayor asepsia, a hacer más simple para lograr mayor volumen y más seguridad. Con insumos que nos dejaron hemos continuado la labor de castrar y esperamos seguir haciéndolo con la siguiente visita.
Para nosotros fue un placer conocerlos, no solo como veterinarios sino como personas cálidas y profundamente humanas!
Luego de la visita tuve oportunidad de escuchar la conferencia de Cathy y comprender mejor la misión de la organización, eso cambió bastante mi visión de lo que es necesario para cambiar la vida de los animales en mi ciudad. Anteriormente solo trabajábamos con animales sin dueño que eran abandonados en las calles pero puede comprender la importancia de ayudar a las personas que no tienen recursos suficientes para hacerse cargo de sus mascotas. Ya que las crías abandonadas en cajas en las calles como realidad cotidiana solo cambiará cuando los animales que viven en familia estén castrados. Esperamos con ansia la siguiente visita ya que sabemos que podremos compartir el sueño común de más y más animales viviendo con mayor salud y bienestar.

As founder and director of an animal health center in Nicaragua, I've had the good fortune of having World Vets teams work with us to better our community, primarily spaying and neutering abandoned street dogs and feral cats, but also treating the myriad of infirmities that plague animals in developing countries. In addition to supporting our existing staff, World Vets are also mentors and teachers to local vet students who are welcome to observe and learn.

My husband and I moved to Sosua, Dominican Republic 6 years ago. Seeing a need to help the 3rd world dogs and cat we knew we found our calling. We volunteer with a non-profit organization called AAAS helping the street animals and dominican owned animals from lower-income families. Searching for help with donations we came across World Vets and inquired about any help we could get for the animals. Moments later Katie Horn e-mailed me saying she could help with sending donations!! This was Christmas of 2010 and what a Christmas it was. World Vets has been helping us by sending donations so we can help even more animals. Finally....my dream came and we have a World Vets team coming here in one month!!! We are so excited as it will mean EVEN MORE animals can be helped. Thank you World Vets for changing the lives of so many animals here in Sosua, DR that would otherwise have no chance at a life.

Katie Horn from WORLD VETS saw our organization via facebook. We have received HUGE boxes of donations from WORLD VETS from medications, tick and flea prevention shampoo. This has helped us to help more and more of our third world animals in Sosua, Domninican Republic. Thank you to everyone who donates to WORLD VETS so they can continue to help even more animals in the world.
THANK YOU!!!

As a vet from a country which is remotes from world community, i have been struggling to contributed to development of our veterinary services. Timor-Leste is newest country in the world and idea of animal doctor is still something new for our people. I am only one who has vet clinic and shelter on the back yard of my house.

World vets is a great organizations. With leadership of Dr Cathy King, i have been able to connected the Briget Bardot Fundation donation. They are on the way to come through Pacific Partnership 11 programs. I am very happy for that and links has been made with the World vets and our country. Viva World Vets!!
