THE STORY:

THE HUMANE SOCIETY VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION INC wrote -

____________________________________________________________________

"My previous experience [with RAVS] was nothing short of amazing. It was rewarding both on a personal and educational level. The communities that we served were appreciative and thankful. You could tell that they truly love their animals and want to do the best they can for them. They made the long days and hard work more than worthwhile! The hands on clinical experience that I gained while on the trip will be indispensable when I graduate from school and become a working veterinarian...there is only so much learning that can be done in a lecture/classroom setting. Being able to use that knowledge in a supervised, clinical setting during RAVS was awesome." ~Katherine Cooper, Class of 2017, University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine

____________________________________________________________________

In August of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to the Spirit Lake Dakota Sioux Reservation in east central North Dakota for a 5 day field clinic. The team of 30 veterinary students and 15 professional volunteers will offer free spay/ neuter and wellness care to hundreds of 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 Spirit Lake.
