Dr. Leys traveled to Nicaragua where she was part of World Vets International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program 

World Vets International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program is a long established student program.  Based at Latin America Veterinary Training Center, which is located in Granada, Nicaragua, the IVM Program facilitates a unique learning opportunity and cultural experience for students. Students are exposed to working in both clinical as well as field condition settings in a foreign country. They are also able to get hands on training, from highly skilled instructors, in a low stress environment conducive to learning.

What an amazing trip Dr. Leys had while in Nicaragua! She helped so many pets, and touched so many lives in just a short time. We are so proud to have her on the Georgetown Animal Clinic, PC Team!!!

Total count : 100 canine surgeries, 250 medical consults, 6 horse surgeries and 40 horses treated (plus 5 rabbits!!) in ONE WEEK!!!
Here is just a sample of her adventure!

Dr. Newman and his wife Phyllis recently traveled to Guatemala where they were part of Mayan Families: Hope for the Animals.

While there, Dr. Newman examined well over 120 dogs, and spayed/neutered over 90. Many of the dogs and cats are owned, but since the owners are unable to afford to feed them, the dogs are turned out into the street to find food. The cost of veterinary care is out of the question, but their love for their pets is amazing!

Phyllis accompanied Mayan families as they delivered daily breakfast to three outlying preschools. Mayan families also provides a noon meal and a take home meal five days a week for seniors unable to afford adequate nourishment. 

Mayan Families is an amazing not-for-profit organization making a real difference for the indigenous families it serves. To learn more, please click here
