THE STORY:

I had a wonderful experience participating on a RAVS trip for two weeks last summer.  It was a great supplement to our education and I am excited to be returning to the same reservations this summer. By the end of the trip, I had helped with surgeries, practiced my physical exam skills, met other vets/techs/students from around the country, and also met many amazing community members on the reservations. I am looking forward to returning and continuing to learn while helping to provide great veterinary care to an under-served area.  The link to the left is a video made by a fellow student on our trip last year.  See below for more information!

In June of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to central and southeast South Dakota for 10 days of field clinics on the Lower Brule and Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux Reservations. The team of 30 veterinary students and 15 professional volunteers will offer free spay/ neuter and wellness care to more than 1,000 animals in this remote community where regular veterinary care is not available.

In addition to wellness services, RAVS’ volunteers will care for animals with a wide range of health concerns including puppies suffering from parvovirus and distemper infections and older animals suffering from multiple infirmities. We will help animals with old traumatic injuries and festering wounds, returning them to a happier life with their family. While providing this care, our volunteers and staff will be educating the family on animal care and public health, helping to make the community a better place for the animals and the people of Lower Brule and Pine Ridge.
