THE STORY:

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my crowdrise page! I'm sure you're eager to donate, but first, let me tell you a bit about myself.

I'm a first year veterinary student at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), which is in Guelph, Canada. I've worked mostly with small animals, but I am one of those vet students that doesn't have an idea yet of what species I'd like to work with when I enter the real world - which is why I'm open to trying anything. 

I first heard about RAVS (Rural Area Veterinary Services) at a lunch-time presentation at school by some 4th year students who had gone on previous trips. The first thing I thought was "wow that sounds tough.... but so awesome." Since then I couldn't get it off my mind! I've never been on a vet-related volunteer trip and I see no better way to spend some of my first summer as a vet student than going on this trip to help such an amazing cause.

Here are some brief trip details:

In August of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will travel to the Standing Rock Lakota and Dakota Sioux Reservation that is part in North Dakota and part in South Dakota for a 7 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 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 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 Standing Rock.

If you want more information about what this RAVS trip is all about... you can check out the FAQ page on their website. HERE: http://www.ruralareavet.org/about_FAQ.php

So if you're a relative, friend, classmate, teacher, random facebook acquaintance or twitter follower THANK YOU for donating. I mean it. You rock.
