Why should this person or animal be a PetPartners Animaltarian of the Year?

I recently took a volunteer trip w World Vets to Nicaragua as a vet tech student.I helped prepare 30-40 cats/dogs per day by administering premeds, placing IV catheters & induced for spay and neuter surgery.We also had an outreach day that involved de-worming 100's of cats and dogs as well as applying flea and tick prevention. There were so many animals in this community that had suffered from anemia, parasites, dehydration and malnutrition because of the lack of money and animal care this country has. But I knew right away which animals needed immediate attention as there was one that specifically called out to me.This trip changed my life that I have made a commitment to myself that I will travel to Nicaragua once a year to volunteer with World Vets! I also help w local dogs around the community w needs like feeding, cutting nails etc and I work as a vet tech.

If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?

If I won't his money I would donate a portion to Dog Warriors Rescue, another portion to World Vets to help purchase the supplies they need and then use some of the money to help pay for my next trip to Nicaragua.
