Veterinarians Without Borders Canada Expands Efforts in the U.S. and Rebrands as Veterinarians Without Borders North America

December 11, 2023

Veterinarians Without Borders/Vétérinaires Sans Frontières, a Canadian non-profit organization focused on animal health to improve the health of communities, announced an expansion into the United States, with the establishment of the registered U.S. charity Veterinarians Without Borders USA.

Together, these two charities are rebranding as Veterinarians Without Borders North America (VWB North America). VWB North America works in more than a dozen countries and serves more than 1.5 million people and animals annually through a range of programming including emergency response efforts, establishing animal health systems and empowering marginalized populations.

All of VWB North America’s work is not possible without the organization’s community of skilled volunteers — with expansion into the U.S., VWB North America will have an expanded list of volunteer opportunities for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians to help provide aid both nationally and internationally. Volunteer opportunities include providing direct medical care, pet owner education, support to farmers in developing countries and response to disasters, and placements range from three weeks to two years, depending on the nature of the position.

Whether volunteering time or making a donation, supporting VWB North America’s expansion into the U.S. means giving the gift of veterinarian care, new opportunities for underprivileged communities and a healthier future for all.
