Our teams comprise both veterinary and non veterinary personnel and travel all over the world, often to remote places with limited resources, where we try to help as many animals as possible as well as the people that often depend on them.

Our work has a strong educational core and we strive to ensure our projects are sustainable and work proactively to help to the communities we visit on a long term basis.
