Hey There! As you can see my name is Nika Martin, and once again I am raising money for another wonderful volunteer experience for the Summer of 2018 (busy, busy summer of volunteering for me!). For two weeks this summer I will be giving up my time, my bed, and most likely regular showers (got to get all that work in right!?) in order to help serve rural areas around Washington State needing veterinary medicine. I will be working with Rural Area Veterinary Services (better known as RAVS) which is a non-profit program that provides free veterinary services (including general health care from physical to vaccines, and up to assisting with emergency surgeries) to underserved rural communities where poverty and geographic isolation make regular veterinary care inaccessible. Every year RAVS and its volunteers are able to serve over 8,000 animals who would not receive veterinary care without this wonderful program.
Every little bit helps! Here is a break down of what your money can help provide to these animals.
- $10 - vaccines for one dog or cat
- $25 - Treat one dog for life-threatening tick-borne illness
- $35 - Anesthetic and surgery supplies to provide spay/neuter for one dog/cat
- $75 - Life-saving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
- $100 - Spay/Neuter, vaccination, and wellness care for one dog or cat
- $250 - Emergency surgery and aftercare for one seriously injured dog or cat
Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide (including taking the time to share this campaign) to help keep this program alive! It's through your donations and the help of volunteers that these rural areas are able to receive veterinary care for their animals.
- Nika Martin
PS - Please contact me with any questions you have about my upcoming volunteer trip or about myself and my career adventures in general! Thank you for everything.
