HAHS and Army Reserve have joined forces to train and treat
The Hooved Animal Humane Society (HAHS) and the U.S. Army Reserve have agreed to work together to help distressed animals and train Army veterinarians. SGT. William Nadolski of the 719th Medical Company (Veterinary Services) at Fort Sheridan, IL, contacted the Hooved Animal Humane Society in June 2011, after reading about HAHS in the McHenry County Magazine. The Army Reserve veterinarians conduct training on animals at 4 week intervals. "It was never an issue to accommodate the small animal vets", said SGT. Nadolski, "but I always had a difficult time accommodating the large animal vets".
SGT. Nadolski scheduled 10 large animal veterinarians to visit the HAHS farm, where they performed routine horse care such as vaccinations, de-worming, dentisry and physical exams. SGT. Nadolski further stated that some of his veterinarians will be available in emergency care situations as well.
Here at HAHS, we are very excited about this opportunity to assist the U.S. Army Reserve while receiving such a great benefit for our horses, the sole purpose of our existence. It's a Win-Win situation.
The 719th Medical Company is a subordinate unit of the 807th Medical Command (Deployment Support) in Salt Lake City. For more information on the 807th Medical Command Unit, visit www.armyreserve.army.mil/807MDSC or become a fan on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/807thmdsc.
