By the Numbers: June Veterinary Volunteer Jungle Trip



The June 17-July 1, 2012 volunteer trip has wrapped up.  We hosted 2 South African Veterinarians, Jackie Terblanche and Kyle Perrin and Russian Veterinary Assistant Yelena Poveda.

This was a small crew that worked hard in Iquitos and in the jungle. 



In total:

  • 102 animals were spayed/neutered; 
  • 141 animals received non-surgical treatments;
  • 126 Albendazole anti-parasite pills were distributed to people living in river communities.

We owe much gratitude to the Fondation Brigitte Bardot and Embrace Pet Insurance for their continued support of our Veterinary campaigns.



Everyone had a great experience.  There was much work, but also great times sightseeing and getting to know one another.




Many more photos are available on our Facebook page in Spanish.  While on Facebook, please like our English Amazon CARES page too!


we have Veterinary volunteer trips August 11-26 and also in October.  Readers of this blog will already know that our August trip is full, except for licensed Veterinarians.  We URGENTLY need Vets and will discount the trip fee.  Learn more.
