Project Samana, a 501c3 charity is looking for veterinary technician volunteers for our upcoming trips. The trips are as scheduled May 6th 2018- May 12th 2018,  September TBD 2nd week and November 2018 TBD.   We travel to Samana, Dominican Republic for a week and open a spay/neuter clinic for the town.  We are in need of a few small animal and equine techs.  In small animal you must be comfortable intubating, placing IV catheters, administration of anesthetic, surgery prep, monitoring and post op recovery. Last year, we implemented local surgical blocks and  go-home pain medication for every patient.  Equine techs need to be willing to work in the field with patients that may not be used to handling and be able to assist the veterinarian with administration of anesthetics, surgical prep and de-worming.  We work for 4 days and have a free day to sight see.  It’s a great experience to work with some amazing surgeons, locals and see interesting cases that we may not see in Massachusetts.

Trip costs ~$1100-$1400 depending on accommodations. There are some fundraising and grants available.  Please contact us for more info at projectsamana@gmail.com or email me directly at squigley124@gmail.com - Sarah Quigley CVT Board of Directors Project Samana, find us online at www.projectsamana.com
