Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Mission: 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, human hospitals, medical equipment/supply manufacturers, individuals and other non-profits. 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 by recycling these items.

Results: Since 2009, the equipment and supplies we have provided these organizations would have cost over $1,500,000 for these groups to purchase, IF they could even procure them in their country! We currently distribute supplies and equipment to veterinarians working in 96 non-profits and non-governmental organizations in 46 countries.

Target demographics: Veterinarians, shelter workers and those working directly with animals in need.

Direct beneficiaries per year: thousands of companion animals, wildlife (free roaming and captive) and working animals who need 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: the U.S. and internationally and currently serve animals in 47 countries.

Programs: Collecting donated veterinary equipment, technology and supplies (V.E.T.S.) which we then distribute to veterinarians working worldwide in 96 non-profits or non-governmental organizations dedicated to improving animal health and welfare.

I first heard about this non-profit through a close friend. The idea they have come up with is brilliant. It is a win win for everyone involved. Reduction in waste and getting supplies where they're needed. I'm so glad they have found a way to get this done and I absolutely love hearing about who they're helping. Just an outstanding non-profit.

Project V.E.T.S. partnered with Clean Futures Fund on the Dogs of Chernobyl program and helped provided equipment for a high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter clinic at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Not only were they great partners, they were also great advocates for our activities.

We are a very small nonprofit, Wild Once More (www.facebook.com/wildoncemore) that rehabilitates orphaned and injured wild animals and returns them to the wild. Project V.E.T.S has been a godsend! Highly organized, great people, and we've gotten so many supplies including things such as a microscope that were desperately needed but we could never have afforded on our small budget. Thank goodness for this amazing nonprofit, and a shout-out to Marcy--she's incredible to work with!

This non-profit is an absolute wonderful use of the many veterinary tools and supplies that would otherwise end up in landfills. This is recycling for the benefit of people and animals all around the world. The women who run this non-profit are extremely involved and invested in the cause.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.!
