This May I will be traveling with a group of volunteers to Washington state to provide FREE veterinary services to animals who might not otherwise have access to care. We will spend 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. RAVS (Rural Area Veterinary Services) makes a huge impact in the lives and health of these animals and their people.
This organization has a great reputation for providing great services while keeping costs low. All donations will be used to ditectly fund the animals' care. The volunteers will be working hard for 10 days, sleeping on gym and community center floors, rising by 5am and often working under 9 or 10 pm.
In addition to wellness services, we 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.
