"My experience with World Vets was life changing. It is difficult to sum up, but it was eye opening, educational, and more than I could have ever expected it to be". ~Haley Furchner, Pre-Vet Student


World Vets develops, implements and manages international veterinary and disaster relief programs to help animals, educate people and have a positive impact on communities. Improving animal welfare and alleviating suffering are high on our priority list but our work extends beyond that. Our programs help to prevent the spread of diseases from animals to humans; our livestock programs help small farmers to pull themselves out of poverty, and our disaster relief efforts for animals directly impact people who might otherwise remain in dangerous situations if the needs of their animals are not addressed.

One of our established programs is the Iternatioanl Veterianry Medicie (IVM) Program. The IVM Program is World Vets student program for veterinary, pre - veterinary and technician students who wish to gain clinical as well as practical veterinary experience. As part of this program we have both short and long term opportunities for veterinarians to work one on one with English speaking veterinary students in surgery. This program is based out of World Vets Latin American Veterinary Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua. Sessions are typically scheduled for a one week duration and are offered 12 weeks out of the year. Read more about the volunteer instructor experience here
