Belize – 2016
A fantastic team doing fantastic work in Belize. Working with SAGA Humane Society, Caye Caulker Humane Society, and Belmopan Humane Society we were able to perform spay and neuter procedures on 205 animals and medical services to many more.
Fiji – 2013
Our team of 4 veterinarians and 4 technicians teamed up with Animals Fiji West Charity Trust to Spay and Neuter 150 dogs and cats at several different locations on the island. With no veterinary care in these areas of Fiji, we were constantly on the move, trying to reach as many animals as possible.
We partnered with Amazon Cares to spay and neuter many animals in Iquitos, Peru.
Cancun, Mexico 2011
Once again we partnered with CANDi International along with Isla Animals of Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Coco’s Cat Rescue of Play del Carmen, Mexico. This one-week campaign was tremendously successful with over 750 animals spayed or neutered!
San Carlos, Mexico – 2011
Our most recent venture brought us to San Carlos, Mexico. A team of 4 Vet Ventures volunteers along with the SPBA helped 110 animals during this one week campaign. Click the photo on the right to see more photos from the event.
San Cosme and Bonfil, Mexico – 2009
This was a great 2 week campaign on the Yucatan Peninsula. With the assistance of the Pan-American Medical Mission Foundation the first week was spent in San Cosme, a Mayan village about 75km out of Cancun. The second week Vet Ventures volunteers moved to Bonfil, a suburb of Cancun to finish up a very successful trip with our host CANDi International.
Requena, Peru – 2009
Our most remote location to date. Our Vet Ventures crew flew into Iquitos, Peru, where we met up with Peruvian veterinarians from Amazon CARES. It was then a 20 hour boat trip up the Amazon River to Requena, Peru. They had never had a veterinarian in Requena, so the group was a welcome site for the community. We set up in a school classroom, just off the market and performed surgery on 300 animals in a 10 day period.
American Samoa – 2007
Our return to American Samoa. During 3 weeks we performed surgery on over 700 animals with both a hospital as well as village visits. The village visits were a great success, going out into the community and setting up field-hospitals to increase the impact on the area.
American Samoa – 2006
Veterinary Ventures inaugural campaign in American Samoa. Over 20 volunteers helped with a 4 week mission in American Samoa, where the stray dog population was so severe it was even mentioned in the Lonely Planet guide. Approximately 800 animals were spayed or neutered.
