Hello friends, family, and animal lovers!
In May of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers, myself included, will travel to the Pacific coast for 4 days of field clinics on the Quinault Reservation, and then head east to the mountains for 5 more days of field clinics on the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. 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 Quinault and Colville.
Just to give you some perspective:
$10.00 = Vaccines for one dog or cat
$20.00 = Anesthetics and surgery supplies to provide spay/neuter for one dog or cat
$35.00 = Life-saving parvovirus treatment for one puppy
$75.00 = Pain management for an injured dog or cat (e.g. post-operative pain management to treat an injured leg)
$100.00 = Spay/Neuter, vaccination and wellness care for one dog or cat
$250.00 = Emergency surgery and aftercare for one seriously injured dog or cat
