Go Pro Camera
For filming teaching videos from a birds eye view
We have attained our 501 c 3 non-profit status! This is another step in what we hope will be growth in the RVETS program and our ability to treat more animals, service more rural communities, and to train more students.
Due to the generosity of our founding donors RVETS has been able to plan a full schedule for 2013. However, there is a lot of work to do out there. Horses need care and students want and need training.
Beyond that there are already communities to whom we have had to say “we want to help, but will not be able to until we have more resources”. Similarly, all of our volunteer slots for students and veterinarians filled up soon after the schedule came out. We are absolutely committed to helping in every place that we possibly can.
RVETS is an all-volunteer organization that invests 100% of all donated funds into field operations. The staff does everything from writing teaching materials and running clinics to fixing the bus and sterilizing instruments. There is no office or storage rental. This is our passion and we appreciate all your help.
