THE STORY:

Hello! I am a second year veterinary student at Cornell University. In my free time, I foster kittens, juggle for the amusement of animals and people alike, and moonlight as a teddy bear ER surgeon. While I thoroughly enjoy repairing children's old stuffed animals, the time has come for me to apply my suturing skills to real cats and dogs, and I am thrilled to be participating in my first RAVS (Rural Area Veterinary Services) trip this summer.

We will be travelling in a MASH-style clinic to the San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona where I’ll be communicating with clients, performing physical exams, providing prophylactic care, administering medication, assessing patients, inducing and monitoring anesthesia, and assisting with spay/neuter procedures. These services will benefit more than just the animals we treat, as, ultimately, through population control, vaccination, and deworming, we will also be enhancing human public health.

I have always been interested in spay/neuter as a means of controlling zoonotic disease transmission, and I am looking forward to having an active role in population management, rabies prevention, and parasite control. I am sure that RAVS will be an educational experience like no other, and I cannot wait to learn from some of the best veterinarians and technicians around while helping animals and communities in need. 

However, RAVS is a donor driven program that relies heavily on fundraising to continue providing free, high quality veterinary care to dogs and cats in impoverished areas. Would you consider contributing? If every participating veterinary student raised $1,000, RAVS medical supplies would be covered for a year. I will be funding my own personal and travel expenses, so all donations will go directly to HSVMA-RAVS and benefit the animals of the San Carlos Apache Reservation. Please consider giving whatever your budget will allow.

  • $10 provides vaccines to one dog or cat
  • $20 covers the cost of anesthesia and surgical supplies for an animal's spay/neuter
  • $35 pays for one puppy's lifesaving parvovirus treatment
  • $75 offers one cat or dog post-operative pain management
  • $100 funds one animal's spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and wellness care
  • $250 allows us to perform emergency surgery on one seriously injured dog or cat

To thank you for your generous support, I will send each donor a postcard on behalf of an animal they've helped me help in summer 2015. And, of course, be on the lookout for photos!

____________________________________________________________________

In May of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to eastern Arizona for 5 days of field clinics on the San Carlos Apache Reservation.  The team of 30 veterinary students and 15 professional volunteers will offer free spay/neuter and wellness care to more than 500 animals in these remote communities 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 animals with life-threatening tick-borne illnesses.  We will continue our work aiding local tribal health efforts to eradicate Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever - improving the health and welfare of both animals and people in need.

Eloise, juggling kittens may foster amusement with animals and humans, but as we learned in The Jerk, it is no laughing matter. I hope you impeccable math skills (for which I take full, albeit undeserved, credit) helped you on your journey. 3 years ago
