THE STORY:

Hey everyone!! 

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.
 

I'm a 3rd year veterinary student at St.George's University in Grenada, West Indies.  I couldn't be more excited about this trip!!! I have been given the opportunity to apply my veterinary knowledge by participating in this spay/neuter and wellness clinic in rural South Dakota. I love to travel and I'm look forward to providing quality care for the animals of the communities of Lower Brule and Pine Ridge. In Grenada, I am part of The Pothounds Against Preganacy Student Association through which we bring dogs from rural areas of the island to our campus for free spays and neuters performed by the upperterm students. I look forward to gaining more knowledge and hands-on experience that I can share with the Grenadian community and my colleagues.

This program would be impossible without the contributions from all of you! Thank you for donating to this fundraiser and helping us care for thousands of animals:)
