My first trip with Vet Techs Without Borders to a spay and neuter clinic in Mexico. A total of 466 dogs and cats in 4 days!
It was amazing to be part of a team of hardworking and dedicated people. Can't wait until next year!

Erika and I had an amazing stay at a wildlife rescue center in the lovely rainforest of Guatemala. It was such a great experience to interact with so many unique creatures, and to help play a part in their rehabilitation with the goal of release back into their natural habitat.
I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to work with such talented and passionate veterinary professionals from all over the world.
The clinic I worked for provided low or no cost to locals and held high-volume spay/neuter services at the shelter and in other communities throughout Costa Rica. Not only was I able to help many animals, but I was also immersed in a different culture and learned SO much more about veterinary medicine and how it's practiced in other countries.
My experience in Houston is something I will never forget, Being able to travel to a crisis area to help is the heart of why I became a technician. I saw the sick and scared become open and engaging as well as the lost be reunited and the homeless find family. I would do it all over in the blink of an eye.

While we were in Guatemala, we got to participate in our first baby sea turtle release. It was an amazing and heartwarming thing to watch. It was an amazing experience to learn about another country while fulfilling our dream of traveling and helping many species of animals.
