DR. ELLIE TEAMS WITH THE BIG FIX UGANDA - Imagine living in a town where there are dozens of emaciated puppies in the road….where your children could get bitten by rabid dogs while walking to school….where you and your dog share the same parasites….where you only make $170 per year in income….where you have witnessed the atrocities of civil war and lost all of your family as a child….
For Americans, this could be a recollection of post-civil war Texas in the mid-1800’s; however, this is the reality of Uganda in 2017.
Dr. Ellie Newcomb will be traveling to Uganda at the end of September to volunteer at the only veterinary hospital in the Northern region of the country. The BIG FIX Uganda is a non-profit organization that provides spaying and neutering to control dog and cat populations, and administers rabies vaccinations, thus reducing human deaths from rabies. They deworm for intestinal parasites and provide flea, tick, and mite treatments for pets, which also helps to reduce parasites in humans. In this impoverished country, these services are all done for free and the villagers line up eagerly with dogs in tow.
The BIG FIX Uganda engages in animal rescue and cruelty intervention when needed. They also train and provide companion dogs for those individuals suffering from PTSD from witnessing the horrors of war, thus reducing the rate of despair and suicide.
Dr. Newcomb will be participating in the celebration of World Rabies Day (Sept. 28) and World Animal Day (October 4) at the BIG FIX Uganda. If anyone has any used but functional dog collars or leashes that are no longer needed, which have been hanging in your garage or stored in a drawer, please bring them by Paradise Ridge Pet Clinic to donate to the cause. Children's DVD's featuring animals will also be gratefully accepted.
Also, if you would like to sponsor a dog for a rabies vaccination, please consider donating $15 and send us a picture of you and your pet; we will match you with a grateful owner and their pet, and compile the pictures into a book upon Dr. Newcomb’s return. She thanks you in advance for all of your support!
Many thanks to our current sponsors: Gold Sponsors Darla Reagin (Merial) and Ashley Anderson (Patterson Veterinary Supply); and our awesome pharmaceutical reps who made personal contributions: Silver Sponsor Melanie Martens; and BIG FIX contributor Tami Diaz.
