We teamed up with People for Animal Welfare St Kitts (PAWS) for another successful community outreach event! PAWS and the One Love Pets St Kitts chapter are made up of students attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. They volunteer their time between studying and other school obligations to help out the human and animal community that they submerge themselves in while attending school. It's a way to give back while connecting classroom learning to real life cases.
The St. Kitts community was invited to bring their pets for free medical care including Physical Exam Vaccines Flea and Tick Prevention Spay and Neuter Sign Ups Food, Collars, Leashes and other pet supplies
These events are critical in this community where pet care is not always accessible or affordable. Through events like these, it is the hope that we can make the animal and human community healthier by educating families on proper animal welfare, zoonotic disease and animal husbandry.
Through the hard work of the students and other volunteers the group was able to provide medical care to 239 dogs, 7 cats and 2 monkeys! An incredible number that we hope will continue to grow as these events become known within the community!
These outreach events however are not cheap! To continue growing we are always welcoming monetary donations and supply donations! Any little bit helps!
