Canadian Animal Assistance Team

The Canadian Animal Assistance Team (CAAT) is a group of veterinary technologists, veterinary assistants, veterinarians and concerned animal welfare members dedicated to providing veterinary medicine and humane education for needy animals worldwide. 

CAAT’s Mission:

To improve domestic animal health and welfare in communities that have little or no access to veterinary services. 

Members and volunteers from across Canada participate in their Animal Health projects, at home and internationally. Their members’ dedication to improving animal health and welfare—both in their own practices and in their volunteer work with CAAT—is inspiring. Their willingness to give valuable time, expertise and compassion to the animals in our project communities makes our mission a reality.

CAAT conducted a 10-day, two-site spay neuter clinic in Burns Lake and Southside in June 2011 as part of the Community Pet Care Event organized by Lakes Animal Friendship Society.

Over 250 dogs and cats were spayed or neutered, and even more received a health check along with vaccination and de-worming. The work put into this event by the tireless organizers Valerie Ingram and Alistair Schroff of Lakes Country Animal Friendship Society, the Canadian Animal Assistance Team and the volunteers was simply amazing.
