All of the Herd Heroes founders work full-time in pharmaceutical R&D and provide veterinary assistance and business training in Haiti on a volunteer basis. Our project goals in Haiti are accomplished through donations from generous individuals who want to help make a difference in Haiti by contributing to an organization which promotes self-reliance and sustainability, rather than a cycle of dependence. All donated funds are used to purchase veterinary supplies and equipment, build animal health field stations, and pay local Haitian workers.
The animal health field stations are durable, multi-use structures with rainwater capture capability, and cost approximately $8500 to build. Salaries for Haitian project managers and community animal health workers, animal feed and medications, and animal transport costs approximately $18,000/year. Please help us keep this valuable program going by making a donation to Herd Heroes. Nearly 100% of donated funds will be spent in Haiti, contributing to local economies. The remainder will be used to purchase veterinary supplies not available through distributors in Haiti.
