Alaska Native Rural Veterinary, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) veterinary
outreach organization. It was created to offer free veterinary care, pet
safety and education to under-served rural Alaskan communities, where
economics and vast remoteness make regular veterinary care inaccessible.
goal of our organization is to deliver modern, culturally positive veterinary
care to populations without service.
The board members,
Victor Lord, Nelson Angapak (newly retired vice President
of Alaska Federation of Natives), and Angie Fitch are born and raised
in Alaska. New board members also include Dr. Tim Hunt and Brian Berube,
YK Delta Health Corporation.
The main reason we started a nonprofit is because many communities with
high numbers of strays, live in fear of dog bites to children and rabies
exposure. Stray dog populations, disease and parasites can be controlled
with accessible veterinary care.
program is modeled after the former Alaska Bush Veterinary Service and
Rural Area Veterinary Service that provides professional care to the
Native Rural Veterinary Inc. accepts tax deductible paypal contributions
and Alaska air mile donations.
