"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, Volunteer


Cabarete, Dominican Republic (Nov 5-12, 2016) - Assistant position available World Vets has been sending veterinary teams to the Puerto Plata area for many years. The objective of our visits has been to support local efforts in providing free veterinary services, and in making routine veterinary care more accessible for local animals. This year World Vets will send a team to Cabarete where they will provide a large scale spay/neuter and animal health campaign.
