South Africa (24 November 2022) – The National Sterilization Project (NSP) has celebrated the team from Envirovet which has successfully sterilised 75,000 animals in South Africa. That is such an incredible accomplishment and one worthy of high praise!

The team is celebrating Envirovet, as they have played a vital role in ensuring as many animals as possible, are sterilised. Envirovet CVC is a non-profit as well and has made a massive impact, not only in sterilisations but offering vet care to remote communities that have no access at all.

Many small towns and rural communities go without veterinary care but Dr Roos and her team work tirelessly to make sure they can help as many animals as possible! The National Sterlization Project took to Facebook earlier this month to congratulate the Dr Roos and team for reaching 75,000 sterilisations.

“The HUGEST congratulations to the incredibly fabulous Dr Roos and Team from Envirovet CVC for reaching this incredible milestone. NSP is so proud to have this formidable team as one of our service providers/beneficiaries for our projects in remote destinations where there is little or absolutely no access to vets.

We are in absolute awe of what this team has gone through to achieve this result for multiple organisations – travelling 1000’s of kilometres to reach remote destinations, sometimes no water and electricity, sleeping rough, putting the slog in to find animals and to educate the locals on the importance of sterilisations, dealing with other medical emergencies other than sterilisations, and the enormous work that goes into pre- and post-project organisation. And then… sometimes, even getting infested with ticks. “All in a day’s work”, according to the team.

No words other than – You ROCK Envirovet!”

This accomplishment has made more of a difference than any of us can ever know. So many prevented unwanted litters means less pressure on communities, on the health of other animals and on shelters.
