Child in northern community comforts dog post-surgery

VWB in Northern Canada 

Animals in the northern regions of Canada tend to live shorter lives, dying from diseases and causes that are either treatable or preventable.

We support communities by offering temporary veterinary clinics in under-served areas in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Once invited, we work to identify needs and build a plan with community representatives to increase the local capacity to address animal care needs year-round.

As of 2022, we have launched an expanded program to continue our work in the Canadian North, partnering with ten communities and focusing on sustainable solutions.
