In addition to the many projects EPAA has done locally, August 2012 we went to Zuni, New Mexico to help the dogs and cats of the Zuni Pueblo. They look forward to veterinarians visiting twice a year with NAVS (Native American Veterinarian Services) and now EPAA has stepped up to help out as well. They have no other vet care on the reservation.
Starting our trip at PHL airport.
