World Vets is a non-government organization (NGO) providing veterinary aid around the globe in collaboration with animal advocacy groups, foreign governments, US and foreign military groups and veterinary professionals abroad.

World Vets is a 501 (c) (3) non profit dedicated to providing international aid for animals. We currently run projects in 12 different countries spread over 5 continents. All of our services are provided at no cost for the local communities where we work. For that reason we strive to bring veterinary care to areas that have very limited to no veterinary assistance available and/or in communities that simply cannot afford veterinary care for their animals.

We generally work in very rustic conditions, operating a mobile surgery medical unit; sometimes operating in remote areas outside or in vacant buildings with limited electricity and water.

All of our projects involve a collaboration with community leaders, local animal advocacy groups, veterinary professionals, foreign governments and/or US and foreign military groups.

As part of our repertoire, we also provide training opportunities for veterinary students and the local practicing veterinarians in spay neuter techniques and small animal and equine medicine.

With all of the veterinary assistance we provide, we also contribute to human health as it relates to the prevention of zoonotic diseases.

Each project relies on volunteers to function; veterinarians, technicians, veterinary students and assistants that do not have any previous veterinary experience. Our projects run year round, so sign up for one today and help us make a difference!
