December 5, 2022 is International Volunteer Day.
What We're Working On
At any given time our organization has multiple projects on the go. Some, like the VETS project, are years long programs that are carefully researched, staffed, and planned to have the highest level of impact in the countries we are operating in.
Others, like the Ukraine Animal Crisis, are put together quickly because the need for immediate help is urgent - lives depend on our ability to quickly mobilize and get funds and relief to where they're needed most.
Regardless of what kind of project we're working on, one thing remains consistent: the desire for a healthier, happier planet is at the forefront of all we do.
Using the Ecohealth concept that connects animals, people, and the environment, we strive to better the earth through caring for all three.
