Dr. Barry Nicholls and the Animal Medical Center staff have completed hundreds of hours in the field spaying, neutering, and treating animals in developing countries since 1995. In September 2011, Dr. Nicholls partnered with World Vets – International Aid for Animals
to further his volunteer efforts, helping to improve the well-being of family pets, reduce animal overpopulation, and reduce the occurrence of human health issues impacted by zoonotic diseases (diseases able to be transmitted between animals and humans) in developing countries.
To quote one of Dr. Nicholls’ favorite Chinese proverbs, “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.”
