When the Animal Care Profession meets Animal Activist wonderful things can take shape. This is what is happening thanks to Dr. Maxina Hunt von Herbing with the creation of North Atlantic Remote Vet Services. NARVS’s mandate is to provide essential veterinary care to remove communities in Newfoundland, especially those in remote northern Labrador where veterinary care simply doesn’t exist.
NARVS is well on it’s way to become a Canadian Not for Profit Charity offering these essential services free of charge to communities that desperately need it. A supporter of the TNR (Trap – Neuter – Return) program, Dr. Hunt von Herbing plans on offering spay & neuter clinics for Northern Labrador communities where domestic dogs often roam free in pack which causes an explosion in the population, and then results in annual dog shoots where these animals are shot and killed on sight to prevent the population explosion. North Atlantic Remote Vet Services programs will help prevent the killing of these animals in remote Northern communities.
Dr. Hunt von Herbing also plans on offering mobile vet services to other remote communities in the province where pet owners may not be able to have easy access to veterinary services. Dr. Hunt also has plans to hold T-N-R clinics to help with cat colonies in the province as well, as animal rescue organizations attempt to control the out of control population.
Dr. Hunt von Herbing and NARVS is currently fundraising to purchase the remaining equipment necessary to provide these services. You can place a donation and learn more about what NARVS is all about by CLICKING HERE or their Facebook Group here
