Bend Veterinary Clinic - Volunteer Missions
The Doctors and staff at Bend Veterinary Clinic are dedicated to promoting the Human Animal Bond and do so through our outreach missions and volunteer programs in our community, our country and globally. We collaborate with local nonprofit organizations like the Bend Spay and Neuter Project to support low cost sterilization in our community and county to help prevent the spread of pet homelessness. Our Doctors and staff volunteer on specific spay campaigns, feral cat Trap Neuter and Release programs as well as partnering with Central Oregon Veterans Organization to provide subsidized wellness and emergency medicine to homeless in Central Oregon. We strongly support Project connect with veterinarians and supplies for the annual wellness event.
Nationally we are supporting population control with non surgical sterilization through Zinc Neutering. Dr. Maas is actively working with Ark Sciences as a master trainer educating and training veterinarians in the specific technique to neuter dogs through a simple and non invasive injection. He is active in training veterinarians here at the Bend Veterinary Clinic from across the country and globally as well as traveling nationwide to offer specific training sessions at Animal Welfare facilities, shelters and Spay and Neuter Clinics.
Our outreach does not stop there. Bend Veterinary Clinic supports campaigns worldwide to provide veterinary service to countries and villages abroad that are less fortunate and do not have a veterinarian. We have sent our Doctors, staff and supplies abroad to the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, American Samoa, Samoa, Cook Islands , Bahamas’, Nicaragua, Mexico and even Cuba. Our impact globally helps many families and communities better care for their animals and significantly reduces many public health diseases like rabies, malnutrition and parasites while alleviating animal suffering through humane treatment and education.
