GeoVets trip to Sosua, Dominican Republic - 200 surgeries, happy faces, and a fantastic new connection!

At this year’s clinic we had the pleasure to work alongside Save Our Scruff, a volunteer group out of Toronto, Canada.  Their mission is to rescue dogs in need and to place them in forever homes.  To date, they have successfully transported over 600 dogs from overseas locations!  SOS fulfilled yet another role,  merging with us for 3 days to handle incoming patients and taking care of recovery.  Tirelessly they worked alongside those on the surgical side to make the event a great success.  Indeed it became a seamless and synergistic relationship, one that both GeoVets and SOS plan to build on in the future.  Already there is collaboration for a spay/neuter clinic to Costa Rica.
