Free vet services on Baffin Island

Veterinarians Without Borders tended to 89 animals in Kimmirut

Queen, a Kimmirut dog, gets an intravenous catheter prior to being spayed by vet technologist Wendy Kane (left) and Dr. Michelle Tuma (right) in Qaqqalik School’s shop on March 15. Tuma and Kane are part of Veterinarians Without Borders, an organization that partnered with the hamlet to offer free services in Kimmirut from March 14 to 17. Overall, the team saw 89 animals during its time in Kimmirut, and now, Kane and Tuma are in Qikiqtarjuaq until Tuesday to do the same thing. (Photo courtesy of Marieke Van Der Velden)

      Probably they are most concerned about caring for animals in areas where there are absolutely zero services available at any time of year ever.
