Twenty-one-year-old, Emily Redford from Ontario, Canada joins Anitha to talk about her experience caring for animals in different parts of the world.
Emily has travelled to India, Hyderbad, Egypt, Panama and Greece to volunteer with local animal rescues.
Though she is not ‘officially’ trained in animal health care, Emily is totally hands-on and assists with before and after surgery care, sedating animals and monitoring them during surgical procedures, and of course offering comfort to the animals.
Emily shares both the best and difficult parts of volunteering in these places.
As a thank you to Emily for sharing her story, Anitha donated to Animal Warriors Conservation Society. This is one of the groups Emily volunteered with while she was in India. This NGO helps animals through conservation, rescuing injured wildlife, and raising awareness about animal-related issues within communities.
