The South African Veterinary Association-Community Veterinary Clinics (SAVA-CVC) is an initiative where private veterinarians donate their time and skills to stop rabies through vaccination, control pet populations through sterilisation and provide information to pet owners from poor communities.
To provide primary health care to animals from disadvantaged communities, thus promoting the health and welfare of animals and people.
The first Community Veterinary Clinic (CVC) was established by private veterinarians in July 1998 in Port Elizabeth to provide the disadvantaged (the poor and those who do not have access to veterinary services) with subsidised veterinary services. In April 2002 The South African Veterinary Association (SAVA) took over the co-ordination of the project and the initiative was launched nation-wide, involving all SAVA members.
CVC main activity is primary health care: vaccinations, parasite control and sterilisations. CVC currently has 29 clinics nationwide (10 Gauteng, 8 Western Cape, 3 North West, 2 Eastern Cape, 2 KwaZulu-Natal, 2 Free State, 1 Northern Cape, Limpopo).
CVC vaccinates about 16 000 animals per year against rabies and general infectious diseases.
