South Africa, Johannesburg: The South African Veterinary Association (SAVA) congratulates Dr. Caryn Rademeyer, from Johannesburg South, South Africa on winning the Animal Welfare Award for Veterinarian from Africa at the 37th World Veterinary Association Congress in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The Global Animal Welfare Award 2021 aimed to recognise people and institutions for their dedication and outstanding work going ‘above and beyond’ to protect and safeguard the welfare of animals and promoting the animal welfare concept and approach in their daily life.
Dr Rademeyer has introduced animal welfare throughout her numerous responsibilities as a veterinarian working across the species in South Africa and has devoted much of her career to animal welfare education. She has also worked tirelessly with organisations such as the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals, in Soweto, Johannesburg, supporting animals and people who cannot afford simple medical care for their pets. She is also a regular volunteer at the Highveld Horse Unit, South Africa’s largest equine organisation.
