We often see animals that are badly treated or left too long with their injury before seeing us. The owners frequently protest that they didn’t realise or that it doesn’t matter – it can’t feel it. This lack of understanding is common place and something we are trying to change. Whenever we see an animal that should have come sooner or that has been abused our vets explain the reasoning and how this can be prevented in the future. This is a very important part of our work. While we can treat the animal in the present moment we also need to try and protect them for the future. Educating owners to have a better understanding and realising animals are just like us can help in reducing their suffering.
If you would like to visit us while you are in Luxor, we would love to see you and show you around the centre. You will get a tour of the hospital, centre and the stables where you can meet and cuddle some of our patients!
We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. You don’t need to be a qualified vet or vet nurse to help us at the centre in Luxor. We have general volunteer placements, veterinary student and vet nurse student placements.
