Community Involvement - Volunteerism

At McKenzie Veterinary Services we recognize that we are part of something bigger than just our clinic. We are part of a community and our community is growing. We are involved at a local level with Vets for Pets, Dee's Orphan Kitten Fund and the Greater Victoria Animal Crusaders. At the provincial level we are involved with the BCSPCA and the Canadian Animal Assistance Team. Nationally we are involved with the Nature Conservancy of Canada and internationally we travel to Mexico with the Mexi-Can Vet Project where we assist Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue and the Mexican Veterinary organization Pets for Life. All of this provides the opportunity for our staff to be involved in something bigger and to give to the world outside of our clinic.
