It Takes a Village

When Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote “It Takes A Village” more than a decade ago, she was describing the collective efforts needed to help our planet’s children. This concept of a multifaceted community to treat our animal friends has become especially relevant to the veterinary community.

I Took a Barbados Vacation, and Came Home with Stray Kittens

They were tiny and starving little cats, struggling to survive on the streets. To make a long story short, I couldn't leave without them.
In October 2005, I was on vacation in Barbados with my cousin Marie. Two days before our departure, as I walked past a frangipani tree, I spotted two small kittens on the walkway. Someone had put out milk for them in 95 degree heat. They were clearly starving. Some children from Great Britain filled me in. The kittens were abandoned and struggling to survive.
