Veterinary Work in Uganda

In July, my classmate Will Underwood and I will be going to Uganda on a veterinary trip. We will be assisting with The Big Fix, a spay/neuter & vaccination program that serves rural Uganda. There is a huge lack of available veterinary care in that area, so we will get to make a huge impact on the communities there.

We will also be collecting samples to begin analysis on the prevalence of disease amongst companion animals in Uganda. This will give insight to the local veterinarians about the diseases and potential targets for vaccination. 

The money that we raise will be used to assist us in paying for our travel expenses and necessary vaccinations. Any additional funds that we raise will be used to purchase textbooks and supplies for The Big Fix and Ugandan veterinary students who do not have the resources we have available to us at UTCVM. 

We would be extremely grateful for any donation that you are willing to give to support this great cause.
