'Dog Shelters in Developing Countries ... the Reality' CPD Presentation

Last week, our welfare veterinary nurse, Hayley Walters, delivered a presentation entitled 'The Realities of Dog Shelters in Developing Countries' that was open to all University staff as part of the Continuing Professional Development series.   Hayley was able to give first-hand knowledge based on her own experiences of working in Thailand, India, China and Vietnam.

"Whilst some of the photos and videos were upsetting to see, it's important that people are aware of what is happening on an international level.  Raising awareness not only increases knowledge, it also allows people to make good decisions in terms of working/volunteering in overseas projects and which charities to donate their money to".

The talk was held on Wednesday 2nd April in the HfSA and was very well received.  Hayley will be delivering it again to the anaesthesia team as part of on-going CPD.
