Dr. Dasaro has been honored with the “Veterinarian of the Year” award due to his outstanding qualities and skills that have contributed to a cooperative working relationship between the veterinary community and wildlife rehabilitators.
There is more to wildlife care than selecting the appropriate foods and caging, or having the best tools and equipment. Knowledge and expertise come into play, as do the skill and talent. There is also a huge component of compassion and willingness to give time, money and energy on behalf of those who would prefer not to share our company: the wildlife we help. For wildlife rehabilitators, we rely on our support network, which includes family, friends, and other rehabilitators, our community and last but not least, our cooperating veterinarians.
The New York State Wildlife Rehabilitation Council has presented this award to Dr. Victor Dasaro for his generous work in wildlife rehabilitation. Seven different NYS rehabilitators nominated Dr. Dasaro. Here are a few quotes from their nominations.
This vet has a love for wildlife that is amazing. I have dealt with a lot of veterinarians as a rehabilitator, but none have the dedication than Dr. Dasaro does.
