Irma – post storm

Irma – post storm

Thank you volunteers
We had a number of veterinarians step up to help out and we are grateful to all those volunteers. Emergency responders are currently assessing damage throughout the state and the extent of the need for veterinary services is becoming clearer moment by moment. If we are in need of your services you will be contacted. If you are not contacted, assume that we are appreciative of your kindness and our needs have been met.

Again, please do not enter a disaster-stricken area unless you are part of an organized response team with authorized access.

Keep us posted
If you know of any veterinarians in your area that may need assistance please contact us at gvma@gvma.net or 800-853-1625. Let us know if there is any way we can be of assistance.

If you are in an affected area along the Georgia coast or in the path of the eye of the hurricane in southwest Georgia, let us know if you are open for business. Veterinary services are in great need following a hurricane. We will be compiling a list of veterinary clinics open and seeing patients and will provide that info to GEMA/HS as well.
