Alaska Native Rural Veterinary, Inc.
Alaska Native Rural Veterinary provides spays, neuters, wellness exams and vaccinations to Native villages that do not have regular access to veterinary care. As a former Bush resident, Dr. Ross understands the difficulties and expense of even basic veterinary care in remote locations. As a result, Dr. Ross appreciates the opportunity to help meet these needs. Dr. Ross has travelled to Lower Kuskokwim villages, Nicolai, McGrath, Takotna, and Unalakleet. She also works with AK Native Rural Veterinary to provide low cost services to the Copper River region, including Copper Center, Chistochina, and Mentasta.
