My Travel Story

by: Kathleen Pitrola Start Date: Aug 17, 2016 - End Date: Jan 3, 2017
I  LOVE being a Vet Tech and hope to use my skills in other capacities aside from working at my job everyday. Having this life experience will help me to share and inspire other Vet Techs to do the same ! I think stepping outside of our comfort zone is good and creates energy that is positive. I'd like to go to Peru to work with World Vets as a Veterinary Technician! I feel that it is important to reach out and help others to understand why it is essential to provide quality care to their pets. I am lucky in that I have a supportive family who will care for my pets while I am away. Giving my time and energy to a cause such as this makes me feel like I've made a connection behind the workplace. Your donations are greatly appreciated .

  • Gouti

    The venue in Honduras, where we spayed and neutered over 200 cats and dogs was located in a school that had a very large fenced in area . The science room of that school was turned into a well functioning surgical suite where many lives were changed . People who normally would not have vet care for their pet would show up with good intentions and hope . It just so happened that the school grounds also had a stray that they fed everyday because she was conveniently safe from the road because of the school being fenced in. Well , she must have done something right in a former life because she ( my Gouti) got a free a ticket to the States. Along with the help of gal named Bailey and a few veterinarians and some paperwork and my Delta airlines flight, Gouti traveled with me to Buffalo, New York and is currently snuggled up on the rug as I write this. I can't imagine what she is thinking everyday. I hope she's happy that she is with me . She loves kids and saying hello to strangers . That was her life for a bit and now she is a queen.
  • My Dogs

    My Dogs
    Some people are a bit overwhelmed when I tell them about my Gouti, Carmelina, Shenzi and Mia ...Four dogs? Wow! The work involved for being responsible for four canines, is no more difficult than when people become parents to children. I never think of taking care of my pets as work or a burden. Providing TLC , shelter , food and affection to my four, enhances my day and my life. I'm sure you can all relate.
