CVS Extends Support to WVS

Barry Brackner, Senior Regional Director, CVS and James Florence, Managing Director of WVS

Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS), a charity which provides veterinary resources to help animal welfare charities and not-for-profit organisations around the world, is to continue to benefit from a regular donation of veterinary supplies from CVS, the UK’s largest and fastest-growing veterinary group.  The company has supported WVS for the last two years and has now agreed to an extension of the relationship.  It will deliver supplies and products to WVS on a monthly basis.  The supplies will then be packaged up and sent all over the world, where they will be used to support the life-saving work of the charities and the animals in their care.

Barry Brackner, Senior Regional Director at CVS, commented:  “The work of Luke and his team at WVS is inspirational and is helping to improve the care of animals in all corners of the world.  We are delighted to support them.”

WVS Managing Director James Florence said:  “With this additional support from CVS we are now able to provide veterinary aid to help even more charities make an even greater impact on animal welfare across the globe.”

WVS aims to provide animal welfare charities with a sustainable veterinary resource.  Through the provision of veterinary aid and teams of volunteers, it supports animal charities and non-profit organisations all over the world, from domestic animal welfare shelters in Greece, to equine welfare projects in Gambia and exotic conservation projects in Grenada and India.
