"Following hurricane Harvey I started searching for an organization that I could volunteer with for disaster relief efforts. I stumbled upon a Facebook post stating that vet techs were in desperate need in Houston to provide medical care to displaced Harvey animals. I knew it was perfect for me so I partnered up with VTWB and headed to Houston.
Once arriving we got straight to work and didn't look back! It was an extremely rewarding and humbling experience. We provided medical treatment and cared for hundreds of displaced cats and dogs.
Many of these animals were sick, injured, or had severe fear and/or anxiety due to the potential situations they had endured prior to being rescued. Even in the short time that I was able to care for these animals I found myself forming a bond with many of them.
I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to work with such talented and passionate veterinary professionals from all over the country, including VTWB's founder Abbie and volunteer Ashley."
You rock, Nicole! We are lucky to have you on our team.
