Dr. Woodall donates her time to International Veterinary Outreach, a non-profit organization run by veterinarians and other professionals working together in different communities around the globe. Dr. Woodall enjoys working with IVO because it allows her to make a difference for animals in communities that don’t normally have access to full-service veterinary care, whether abroad or closer to home.
After graduation, Dr. Woodall stayed on with the organization and became the project manager for their Bay Area project, which partners with Oakland Animal Services to help provide surgery for shelter cats. This project has reduced the burden on the shelter, and also decreases the amount of time the cats spend in the shelter before they can be placed for adoption. In the future, IVO hopes to expand this project in order to provide basic medical care, such as vaccines and spay/neuter, for low-income residents of Oakland.
