Our Projects

Marshall Islands

January 2020, 19 volunteers with Visiting Veterinarians International teamed up with MIAOW Majuro a NGO in Majuro Marshall Islands to provide veterinary care to 486 animals on the Island of Majuro. Majuro has not had veterinary care on the island since 2015. We provided skilled teams of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants who traveled from the areas of the United States, Japan, Australia and United Kingdom, to execute a community wide spay/neuter campaign as well as health consultations for 486 dogs and cats in need. VVI set up in 3 different locations about the island of Majuro offering these services. MIAOW Majuro provided lodging, local transportation and meals for the volunteers in exchange for the anesthetics, medications and supplies that Visiting Veterinarians International provided during the campaign. We exceeded our goal of helping provide veterinary care to over 400 animals as well as gather information on the status of heart-worm infection, tick borne diseases, radiation effects and genetic makeup of the animals residing on Majuro, Marshall Islands.

Belize

January 2022, 11 VVI Volunteers teamed up with Punta Gorda Humane Society and Belmopan Humane Society to provide a community wide Spay/neuter campaign as well as health consultations for dogs and cats of Belize. We treated 309 pets during our 3 days in Punta Gorda and 3 days in Belmopan. In addition we provided free Heartworm, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma and Lyme testing to over 200 dogs. Punta Gorda and Belmopan are towns that have grown close to our hearts and we will visit these towns from time to time to help them with their pet care needs. http://www.puntagordahs.org/ & https://www.belmopanhumanesociety.org/
