Mobile Veterinary Training Clinic Saving Lives in Vietnam
Help us buy a Mobile Clinic Van for Christmas!
With the poor access to veterinary care in most parts of Vietnam, and with such low standards of care even in the big cities, a mobile veterinary clinic that is able to reach animals where they are is the only solution. Most pet owners are unable to afford safe sterilization procedures and the local clinics rarely have supplies of vaccinations against infectious diseases. By bringing mass sterilization and vaccination along with top-notch veterinary treatment to the animals, we stand a good chance of finally being able to reduce pet overpopulation, rampant infectious diseases, and neglect/abuse cases that leave animals in need of rescue.
Prevention is the best medicine for the animals of Vietnam and our international veterinary project manager will be teaching our Vietnamese veterinary interns how to perform clean and safe surgeries that will really make a difference in the quality of life of these animals.
We are buying a van to hold the equipment, staff, and some kennels. The first year for the project will cost close to $150,000 with equipment, medications, full time vet staff, and a car.
VAAR has previously run mobile clinics in several parts of the country and we also had our own veterinary training clinic for close to three years. We learned many valuable lessons from this and we look forward to restarting this lifesaving work.
