Welcome to SAVA CVC
SAVA-CVC (South African Veterinary Association Community Veterinary Clinics – established 1998) supports veterinarians that provide education and primary veterinary care for animals in very low-income communities. The clinics work to increase responsible pet ownership to prevent the problems that shelters respond to, e.g. diseases that are preventable through vaccinating, ecto- and endoparasite diseases, malnutrition, overpopulation.
All CVC clinics are run by a registered veterinarian as a mobile clinic to ensure a professional and sustainable service with low overheads. Currently 31 clinics operate country wide.
SAVA-CVC provides support to the Community Veterinary Clinics through:
- producing shared digital educational information
- central fundraising & marketing
- central medical supply contract negotiations
- shared learning and mentoring
