I am a first year student at Washington State University College of Vetmed. I became intersted in vetmed after driving from Idaho to Costa Rica with my family. I was 14 years old at the time and was stunned by the amount of animals that were desperate for health care. Growing up in the suburbs of Southern Idaho, I had never seen a starving, tick ridden dog laying on the side of a highway with a full litter of puppies nursing, trying to survive. This scene broke my heart and was continuous throughout all of the 7 countries.
This scene is not just in third-world countries, but very present in the US as well, especially in Native American Reservations where the access to veterinary care is very limited. This brings me to RAVS, a service for veterinary care to rural areas. As a volunteer, I am responsible to fundraise as much as I can to support the costs for a 12 day trip to Colville and Quinault reservations on the Washington coast. Any donations are greatly appreciated and in doing so you are providing animal care to areas who are in desperate need of spays, neuters, and vaccinations. Thank you!
