On Wednesday, 24 July, Vet Books held their very first Dodegball event at Onderstepoort.
The day was a great success with 17 participating teams and even more spectators. It was amazing to see the kind of support we have from the students at OP and we look forward to hosting an even bigger Dodegball day next year!!
A big thank you to all those that got involved and showed their support and a HUGE thank you to Hills Pet Nutrition and Red Bull for their sponsorship of some fantastic prizes that we were able to provide several teams at the event!
We look forward to next year =)
A great partnership has been formed with Roots & Shoots Kenya, an initiative of the Jane Goodall Institute. We will be visiting them on our trip and working together with the Chief Veterinary Officer, Dean of the Veterinary Faculty, the Kenya Veterinary Association and Kenya Wildlife Services (the doctor of whom is a past OP student and University alumni member themselves =D)! Our involvement with them will take us to the local Maasai Mara community lands where we will partner up with volunteer students from the faculty and aid with vaccination programs of the livestock and domestic pets in the area!
An amazing opportunity has presented itself and we feel that much closer to achieving our goal of international cooperation with veterinary faculties across Africa.
