In Haiti, the hard work continues

The ARCH field team is hard at work in Haiti, treating animals via the mobile clinic. So far they have treated 54 sheep, 24 goats, 10 cows, 20 pigs, 188 dogs and 34 cats by providing antibiotics, vaccinations, flea baths and nutritional supplements.

In recent days, the team was admitted into the "tent cities" where earthquake refugees are taking shelter so they could continue vaccinating animals and providing field veterinary care. One ARCH field responser reported that, "The desperation of the people in these camps is heartbreaking. Nevertheless, they are bringing their animals to the team every day for aid and assistance, and they are appreciative of our efforts."
