Animal welfare and the humane treatment of domestic animals, farm animals or wildlife in emerging and developing countries in general is of minor importance because of the bad economic situation and poverty. Furthermore the suffering of animals is often worsened because of insufficient veterinary care.
With our programme VETS UNITED we care for more skilled personal to be working in those countries, who are able to treat both the physical and the emotional wounds of the animals. In cooperation with local partner organisations we seek to raise veterinary minimum standards on site. For that purpose education and training on location is a major feature. Not only the medical equipment as the availability of medicines is of importance, but also the observance of regional differences with regard to the frequency of animal diseases and the raising of the awareness of the participants in the programme for the aspects of animal welfare. Experienced vets from Germany on a voluntary basis are the course instructors on location. Without pay but with a high degree of commitment and conviction they stand up for animals.
