About This Session: Small Team, Big Impact
The team may be small, but it is mighty! Join us for a conversation with Dr. Kelsey Gerbig and community member Denita Brown as they discuss the creation of the Field Veterinary Program and its impact in Washington, DC. This program is unique, integrating access to veterinary care into the Humane Rescue Alliance’s field services department (the branch that houses humane law enforcement and animal control). This innovative approach of collaborating with animal control and humane law enforcement officers to reach community members and reduce unnecessary animal surrenders has shown great success in its first year. We will discuss the importance of reducing barriers to care, the challenges the team has faced, and the impact we have made so far.
