Pet Vet Clinic has established mutually benefitial relationships with the following organizations:
BLUE PAW TRUST (BPT)
Blue Paw Trust was established in 2003 as the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of Pet Vet Clinic to provide a professional perspective, effectively balancing the needs of both human and animal health and welfare. BPT was granted honorary membership of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in 2004. Subsequent to the tsunami of December 2004, BPT, in collaboration with WSPA, operated two mobile veterinary clinics to sterilize and vaccinate dogs in these regions. Due to the success of this 2 year project, in 2007 WSPA invited BPT to carry out a 5 year dog population management and rabies control program within the city of Colombo. The Colombo city project has resulted in a drop of dog rabies from an average of 35 cases in 2007 to two cases so far this year (January – July).
Due to its continuing growth and expansion, in February 2011, BPT changed its status from that of a Trust to a Not for Profit Organization Limited by Guarantee with the Registrar of Companies, with a Board and associated personnel appointed. In parallel to this, application for charity status is being initiated.
The Society of Companion Animal Practitioners (SCAP)
The Society of Companion Animal Practitioners (SCAP) of Sri Lanka was established in 2003 by a group of enthusiastic veterinary surgeons who understood the great demand for quality veterinary services and a need for veterinary clinicians to update their knowledge to meet current trends as well as to advance and develop companion animal practice.
SCAP is dedicated to increasing access to knowledge, promoting continuing professional development of veterinarians and uplifting the country’s veterinary profession to international standards.
SCAP increases access to knowledge by organizing seminars and workshops for companion animal practitioners. They have been instrumental in popularizing continuing professional development in Sri Lanka. Most of the Sri Lankan veterinarians are not in the habit of improving and updating their knowledge after graduating from university. Outside of SCAP, there are very few continuing education opportunities available for companion animal clinicians. Our seminars and workshops have provided opportunities to upgrade and advance knowledge. We facilitate advancement of the veterinary profession in the country by inviting international consultants from all over the world to hold clinically pertinent seminars and workshops.
Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V. is a Berlin (Germany) based registered non-profit animal welfare organisation supported by 100,000 animal friends. The NGO was founded in 1998 and employs twelve members of staff in full and part-time as well as on a voluntary basis. WTG does not receive any government funding or support. It is only due to the kind and generous help of their donors and supporters that they are able to help suffering animals around the globe. WTG believes that education is the most crucial and sustainable tool to create a world in which animals are treated with respect and understanding. All over the world animals are neglected, mistreated, abused or killed inhumanely. WTG is highly committed to improve the living conditions of these animals.
The aim of the VETS UNITED programme of WTG is to improve the animal health care through education and advanced training in situ and thus improves the well being of domestic animals, farm animals and wild life on long term.
