Dr. Nord and Matt (one of our nurse technicians) will be flying to Samana, in the Dominican Republic. They will be volunteering their time and skills to spay, neuter, and perform other needed veterinary services for the animals of Samana – homeless animals as well as pets owned by people who cannot afford such services. In order for Dr. Nord and Matt to get to Samana, we are asking for donations. One of our nurse assistants will also be selling her handmade jewelry to raise money.

You can also go to the MVMA website for more information, and to make an online donation at the bottom of the page (please mention Dr. Terri Nord in the contribution recognition section):
