In 2014 Dr. Gumley and Sarah became part of a team called “The Grey Bruce Aboriginal Qimmiq Team”.
It is a team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians that volunteer to provide humane canine population control and community education in remote and semi-remote First Nation communities in Northern Ontario.
A large number of these communities are only accessible by plane which makes travel to receive veterinary care almost impossible.
The teams main goal while there is to perform vaccines, spays, castrations, deworming, animal identification, and to educate on humane animal care and bite prevention.
This year Dr. Gumley and Sarah will be joining the team in Whitefish Bay Reserve near Kenora in North-Western Ontario from February 13-20th.
Stay tuned for photos and stories from our travel to the North and to learn more about how these clinics make a significant impact on the community in which they are held.
