THE STORY:

I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association-Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) program this summer. We will be providing small animal spay/neuter, vaccination and medicine services to animals most in need, and at no cost to owners, exclusively to the communities in the Quinault and Colville Indian Reservations in Washington state. For two weeks we will be travelling with no frills, rising every day at 6 and work nonstop well into the evening. We will be staying the night on the floors of gymnasiums and community centers, with or without showers, so that we can dedicate all of our time, energy, and hardwork to these people and their pets.

I would not be doing this if I did not feel it was for a cause worth sacrificing for! I am honored to be able to provide this care to those who truly need it, and have this invaluable experience to learn and grow from along the way. THANK YOU for reading about my cause and for your support.

"RAVS is a wonderful place to learn and practice vital veterinary skills in a low pressure environment ... I think it is incredible that a team of mostly strangers from completely different backgrounds can come together and efficiently complete the seemingly daunting - yet incredible - task known as RAVS!" ~Kara Miller, Class of 2017, Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine

In May of 2015, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers 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.
