The company I work for, dogIDs, has been a proud supporter of WorldVets for over a year now. Our customers love their story and feel strongly about supporting them.
The work they are doing overseas is not only helping animals in need, but helping those that work with the animals to lead a better life. Proud to have them be from our hometown of Fargo, ND!
World Vets is amazing! They help animals that have no one there to help them- whether it is in a poor country or during a disaster. One of the really great things about World Vets is that almost all of their veterinarians are volunteers which makes it possible for donations to stretch further. Animals in poor countries are just as deserving of care as other animals- and this organization makes that possible. The work they do is invaluable and fills an important need that is not otherwise being filled. I am also impressed that they work with the Navy every year to help animals alongside the doctors who are helping people on the humanitarian aid missions. Overall, a great group! I am a loyal supporter and fan of the work they do.
Writers are often advised to write what they know about, and those of us who care about the welfare of animals are often told that we should start with concerns in our own backyards. And this my partner and I do. We helped rescue an abused dog last year who has become the light of our lives. We donate goods and cash to community and provincial animal rescue in British Columbia, and nationally across Canada. But where the suffering of animals is concerned, I think of John Donne. No man is an island, indeed. To paraphrase Donne, any animal's suffering diminishes me, whether in the neighbour's yard or in the streets of Cairo. If I can help one animal anywhere to know that somebody cares whether it is fed, cared for and loved, I am doing my part toward raising the bar of awareness, and of kindness, which all humans must aspire to . World Vets helps me feel that I am a part of that great work of caring and cherishing our animal brothers and sisters.
Our rescue organization donated to World Vets and we were most impressed with them. They were going to Japan and were on the scene amazingly fast and they made it easy to see where the donations were being used. They worked perfectly with the local organizations and the donations are not lining someone's pockets. It is time we donated again!Thank you to all the volunteers of this organization.
What can I say about this awesome organization......I have been associated with World Vets since it was just an idea of Dr. Cathy's. It has been wonderful to watch it grow and become a realization of her vision. This organization not only provides such excellent care for animals throughout the world, but has given veterinarians a chance to share their knowledge with other countries as well as giving veterinarian students a chance for hands-on training to help in their education. It has also given these students a chance to look at veterinarian care in a different way and consider other alternatives for their futures. Non-veterinarian volunteers have also been given the chance to help change the views of other countries in regards to their relationships with their animal kingdom. I cannot say enough about this organization as I completely believe in it and its vision with my whole heart. I hope to be able to be a volunteer on one of their trips someday and am very proud to be a donor/supporter of their efforts.
These folks are fearless. They've gone around the globe helping animals in need and the people who love them. Currently they're assisting the victims of the Japanese earthquake who have been told they can't get to their beloved pets due to the radiation leaked by the crippled nuclear reactors. World Vet volunteers risk their lives by literally going into the hot zones to feed, rescue and reunite pets with their owners who may or may not be able to take them back due to their limited living conditions.
WVO understands the bond between people & their pets and the dedicated staff lives by the credo "If not for us, who?" They take this motto around the world to third world countries and perform surgeries, vacinations and supply food for domestic animals that would otherwise suffer or die. In hearing they needed words of recommendation - I did not hestitate in coming to this website - long may World Vets.org continue their fine work and service to the world's animals. Truly making the globe an ark of love.
They are tireless and amazing! They have helped animals, their humans and needy vets around the world. They fearlessly went into tsunami torn Japan to help rescued pets and their people get desperately needed vet care.
