Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS)

  Applications are being accepted for all veterinary student volunteers as of October 31, 2017!

Applications for volunteer veterinarians and technicians will be open November 20, 2017 and will be accepted on an ongoing basis (no deadline).

The Rural Area Veterinary Services program combines high quality direct-care veterinary field clinics with clinical training for future veterinary professionals to improve the health and welfare of animals in remote rural communities. Each year, we provide over $1 million in free veterinary services to more than 8,000 animals, in over 40 communities through RAVS. We also provide invaluable hands-on training for hundreds of future veterinary professionals.

Our teaching programs include training in medicine and surgery as well as community education and recognition of animal health problems in economically disadvantaged populations. 
Through these efforts, we provide care for animals in need, improve the skills of veterinarians and veterinary technicians and inspire their participation in animal protection efforts.

Help us continue this vital work to improve the health and welfare of animals in remote, rural communities—make a donation»
