The Christian Veterinary Mission seeks to help veterinary students and professionals live out their Christian faith through their profession by serving in their own communities and worldwide.  Their desire is to transform lives and communities by improving the health of livestock and other animals.

The West Copake Reformed Church is currently assisting in sponsoring Dr. Wayne Hassinger and his family while they are serving in Haiti.

We became involved in this mission as one of our congregants had made several mission trips to Haiti with CVM and encouraged our Church to send a group of volunteers in 2006.  The group included two Veterinary Doctors and 6 volunteers.  They were equiped with several suitcases filled with medicines and vaccines.  It was a life changing experience for all who participated.  We have been sponsoring this veterinary mission ever since.  


Each month we designate a different Mission for our congregation to support.  The Missions include local, national and global missions.  This is the calendar for 2023.

                                     Albany, NY 

                   Captial City Rescue Mission began 70 years ago when God Called a group

                   of men to Provide "soup, soap, and salvation" to the homeless and hungry

                   in downtown Albany.  Over the years, CCRM has continued and expanded

                   its efforts to feed both the body and the soul, giving hope and new life to

                   individuals and families.

                   The men, women and children they serve are fighting to overcome incredible

                   trauma, loss and despair.  Knowing that you're praying for them gives them

                   such encouragement.  Please consider giving to this wonderful and worthwhile                                   mission.
