THE STORY:

Hello!!

I am a veterinary student at the University of Illinois and I decided to become one at a very young age when I saw the need to help animals as well as people. At this moment I am in my second year of veterinary school and this summer I have the opportunity to volunteer on a 2-week program with Rural Animal Veterinary services in South Dakota on and Indian reservation. This will be a great opportunity to help animals and for me to get some surgical and clinical experience since I will be performing physical exams, vaccinations, deworming and spaying/neutering animals that normally don’t have access to medical care.

The money I raise will help pay the medical supplies to make this happen, Thank You for donating!!!

Hola Familia

Espero todos se encuentren bien de salud y aprovecho este medio para saludarlos y darles la siguiente noticia en la cual espero me quieran ayudar =). 

Como ya muchos saben, estoy en mi segundo año de veterinaria en la Universidad de Illinois y no podría estar mas feliz con la decisión de emprender esta carrera. Ha sido una trayectoria extensa y de mucho estudio pero muy muy satisfactoria.

Les comparto que este verano iré 2 semanas a una ciudad en South Dakota a participar en la esterilización y vacunación de perros y gatos. La ciudad se llama Lower Brule, es una reserva India donde vive gente de bajos recursos y donde no cuentan con servicios veterinarios para sus mascotas. Esta oportunidad me va a servir de mucho tanto para ayudar a gente y animales que lo necesitan como para aprender mas de esta maravillosa profesión. Iremos alrededor de 30 estudiantes de Estados Unidos para realizar cirugías y exámenes físicos.

Es una oportunidad 100% voluntaria, gente de la ciudad se ha ofrecido a brindarnos un lugar donde dormir así como alimentos para estas dos semanas pero la organización (RAVS) nos ha pedido que recaudemos fondos para llevar el equipo necesario como materiales de anestesia, instrumentos, vacunas, etc.

Les dejo este link para los que gusten apoyarme, cualquier aportación suma, muchas gracias!!

Saludos!!

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.
