Alaska Native Rural Veterinary, Inc.


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.

The 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.

The program is modeled after the former Alaska Bush Veterinary Service and Rural Area Veterinary Service that provides professional care to the Reservations outside.

Alaska Native Rural Veterinary Inc. accepts tax deductible paypal contributions and Alaska air mile donations.

If your community is in need of veterinary service, if you would like to volunteer or if you are a veterinarian interested in giving back through your profession
