Requesting Veterinary Emergency Support
New York emergency veterinary hospitals need the help of qualified emergency veterinary employees on a temporary basis to help people and their pets when they need it most.
Staff can join the emergency hospitals in several capacities:
- On-premises shifts working on emergency cases
- Home-based shifts working on reception phone-calls and tele-triage (and ready to keep the hospital open if the on-premises shift becomes ill or quarantined).
If you would like to register with this database to be called upon when staff is needed at a NY veterinary emergency hospital, please fill out one of these forms:
Meeting the Needs of Our Veterinary Community
Veterinary Emergency Group has developed a collaborative model to help the New York veterinary community with staffing for disaster preparedness in general and specifically now, for the Covid-19 crises.
The model will help emergency hospitals to stay open 24 hours and help local veterinary practices to shift their operations into these emergency hospitals if they are closed or unable to maintain staffing.
We are initiating a database of all NY veterinary staff to identify themselves, their location and their skills in handling emergency cases. Our hope is that all veterinary emergency hospitals will have access to this database at times of crisis in order to maintain adequate staff to stay open.
