Vet Techs Without Borders
Now more than ever there is a need for qualified veterinary professionals among animal rescue groups. Many of the organizations Vet Techs Without Borders serve do not have the resources to employ veterinary staff and must rely on volunteer support to continue their essential work. The nurses provided by VTWB help in animal sanctuaries, spay/neuter, wildlife rescue, and more.
Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health to Eliminate Rabies
Through the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, WSU professors Drs. Thumbi Mwangi and Felix Lankester are addressing the critical transboundary issue in eliminating infectious diseases through their efforts at the borders of Kenya and Tanzania.
Specific to rabies, achieving the needed 70% vaccination coverage in one country will not be effective if unvaccinated dogs enter from adjacent villages in the neighboring country.
This coordination, led by Drs. Mwangi and Lankester, is not only critical for rabies elimination but also will establish policies that can be broadly applied to transboundary diseases. We are happy to be partners in addressing this issue.
Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and care for the Earth by linking communities and helping bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty.
Lien Animal Clinic is working with local West Seattle businesses like Chaco Canyon to help local and global communities. We are currently supporting Heifer International. You can make donations via our website, in our clinic, or at Chaco Canyon. Every dollar we raise up to $100,000 will be matched by a generous grant from Elanco Animal Health.
