As an animal rescuer and an animal rights activist, you no doubt know the absolute need there is for an animal rescue shelter and clinic in your area. Of course, you do not have to be a vet or a qualified professional to set up a small clinic of your own. All you need to do is to get together with other rescuers in your group to pool in money and collect donations to set up an area where you will be able to temporarily house the rescues until you are able to re home them.
The first thing you will need is a small area where the animals can be temporarily housed or fostered. You can do this by allocating a small area in your own garden or in your home where you can keep a few animals until they are ready to be re homed. While you cannot perform any real medical procedures, there are small things that you will be able to do to make the animal’s life a little better until a vet has arrived at the scene. Having a room of this sort will also make the vet’s job a lot easier as opposed to putting together a table in an emergency that will be difficult to work on and will not have the right lighting conditions.

It would be a good idea to contact ambulance equipment suppliers who will be able to supply you with things to keep in your vehicle or even supplies that can help you to transform your own vehicle in to a mini ambulance and emergency medical care vehicle.
In fact, as a full time rescuer, you can even have your vehicle transformed by mobile clinic manufacturers and use the vehicle when you go out on your rescues. You can even let other rescuers use your vehicle in an emergency to make the rescues they do easier.
Only an a animal rescuer will know just how many animals they find injured, hurt, weak and stranded on a daily basis. Most of us will usually not have anything on us at the time to handle such a situation and have to depend on doctors and vets to come to us. Sadly, due to the sheer amount of animals everywhere, these ambulances and vets may not always be available to help us and this can be a big issue. This is why you should always have food and supplies with you wherever you go, even when you are going about your daily life.
