three master's degree programs, dozens of certificate of graduate study
programs and hundreds of extension courses. All this makes Universidade
Positivo one of the foremost institutions of higher learning in Brazil. A
new veterinary college will be opened in 2016 and the freshman class
will be able to assist with our clinic.
Volunteer Veterinarians will be responsible for their flights to and from Curitiba as well as accommodations and most meals.
will be our third outreach ( Johannesburg and Taclaban, Philippines ).
These outreach experiences have been amazing and hundreds of companion
animals have been sterilized and treated for parasites as well as
vaccinations during the first two clinics. People who could not afford
or have access to veterinary services owned all of these animals and the
result is that we made definite improvements in reducing
overpopulations of pets in the areas we worked in……. Veterinarians
contributing to improving animal welfare!
