LOVELAND, Colo., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On behalf of World Vets, Heska Corporation (Nasdaq: HSKA) is announcing an important opportunity to support relief efforts in the wake of the crisis in Japan.
One of the winners in Heska's 2010 Inspiration in Action Contest (www.heska.com/action), World Vets, is a non-government organization (NGO) providing veterinary aid around the globe, in collaboration with animal advocacy groups, foreign governments, U.S. and foreign military groups and veterinary professionals abroad.
In response to the recent earthquake and tsunami, World Vets has reached out to the veterinary community in Japan, specifically in Sendai - an area affected by the tsunami where animals are reported to be isolated and injured. Working with a large coalition of Japanese animal welfare groups and international aid organizations, World Vets has already deployed a first responder assessment team and is currently mobilizing their resources to set up ongoing support activities.
Heska's purpose is to support the well-being of animals and the people who share their lives. We encourage all like-minded individuals and organizations to take action by learning more about opportunities for involvement and financial aid. Please visit their website: www.worldvets.org.
