ONE HEALTH

Our Work

Together, with a collaborative One Health approach our team is providing veterinary resources and care to communities who don't have equitable health care access. With compassion at the forefront of all our work, we recognize the gap in not having essential access to health services, including veterinary care in many communities throughout Manitoba. We also recognize the connection between people, animals and their shared environment and what this means for how we provide assistance, support and advocacy. 

In our commitment to reconciliation, we stand in solidarity with Indigenous people of this land recognizing that we're operating on Treaty 1, 2 and 5 territory and will support Indigenous communities with respect.

Help Support our One Health Program

Poplar River Vet Clinic

Connecting communities to services.

Together with the help of Winnipeg Humane Society we were able to provide Spay and Neuter surgeries to over 50 animals. Our team was also there to provide vaccinations, and stock up the community with emergency food for the community pets. 

After years of work in Poplar River, we're happy to report that they have reduced their stray animal population significantly. 

Our One Health Program is working!

Town of Grand Rapids

Connecting vet care to communities

Our team, together with the Winnipeg Humane Society were able to provide 40+ animals spay and neuter surgeries and vet care by providing transportation from Grand Rapids to Winnipeg, and back again so all animals could receive vet care before making it back to their owners. This is how our team makes veterinary care accessible and affordable.
