Worldwide Vets, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing animal suffering globally, is leaving a significant mark in over 10 countries across 4 continents. The organization's multi-modal approach involves dispatching veterinarians to areas in need, sourcing and providing medications and equipment, training local veterinary professionals, and conducting ongoing volunteer programs and outreach missions.
Aligned with the broader global agenda, Worldwide Vets actively promotes Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), notably contributing to SDG 15 (Life on Land) by addressing the well-being of animals. Additionally, its initiatives contribute to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), considering public health aspects.
Worldwide Vets, headquartered near London, England, extends its reach across the globe, working in South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. The organization has clinics or teams in various countries, including India, Borneo, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Zanzibar, Ghana, Cambodia, Peru, Costa Rica, and Madagascar.
The dedicated team, comprising veterinarians, nurses, technicians, and conservation support staff, works tirelessly year-round to provide the best care and treatment for animals. Their missions range from rescuing snared wildlife to translocating endangered species like lions, rhinos, elephants, pangolins, turtles, or sloths to safer environments. In poverty-stricken communities, they offer preventative and reactive medicine to a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, cows, goats, sheep, and poultry.
Community education and empowerment are integral to the organization's ethos. They firmly believe that local communities are best suited to care for local animals. Through capacity building, education, and school teaching sessions, Worldwide Vets makes a sustainable impact in the countries where they operate.
Volunteering is not just an opportunity to give back but also a chance to challenge oneself, learn new skills, and make a meaningful difference in the world. With the challenges of the 21st century, volunteers are encouraged to come together, taking responsibility for the well-being of animals and the planet.
Around 400 volunteers from various corners of the world join Worldwide Vets every year. Many of these volunteers are studying or have studied at some of the world's top institutions, and the organization is honored to have conducted presentations and practical sessions about working with animals and conservation at these schools.
Worldwide Vets exemplifies the strength, activity, and progress of the global society in addressing pressing issues. By actively contributing to SDGs and carrying out impactful projects worldwide, the organization demonstrates a commitment to a better future for animals and the planet.
