Our mission is to serve Mongolian society by reaching out to all provinces with training in animal husbandry, education, and personal development, and to elevate the veterinary industry to the standards of developed countries.
Our project first started in 1999 as “The project to support remote rural schools” in Arkhangai and Uvuvrkhangai Provinces. We began to organize summer preschool classes for herder’s children and taught literacy for illiterate children.
From 2003 our project name changed to “Claim a County”, and the project has been expanding to more counties.
The “Claim a County '' project was completed in Arkhangai, Uvurkhangai, Dornod, Dornogobi, Dundgobi, Khentii and Sukhbaatar provinces though all of the province's counties. Each county completed a 3year course. After that, we have been continuously implementing projects and necessary training for countryside people after the completion of those 3 years.
Within the “Claim a County” project, since 2017, the “Gift of Love” project has been implemented in which we give the gift of sheep or goats to poor families in the countryside. We gather together with the local governor and local veterinarians to deliver the animals.
Currently, the “Claim a County” project has been implemented successfully in Bulgan, Khuvsgul, Zavkhan, Selenge, Umnugobi, Bayankhongor, Khovd provinces making a total of 28 Counties each completing the 3 years course.
During the “Claim a County” project there were a total of 11,297 children and adults in 2022. Also, Khovd province just recently started the “Claim a County” project in 2022.
The project team organizes quality trainings for the intellectual needs of local people, children, youth, families, and employees of government organizations, and aims to help them apply what they have learned in their lives and lead a better life.
Compared to children urban areas, for children in rural areas it is not possible to attend the courses that they would want during the summer holidays. That is why, the "Claim a County" project team organizes necessary summer trainings in local communities during the summer holidays for school aged students, as well as 35-day kindergarten trainings for children who cannot go to the school buildings in the county centers.
About 100 summer teachers every year and students who are studying to become teachers work as summer teachers in the annual summer training. The English language, Kindergarten, and Character curriculum and textbooks used in the summer training are prepared by the teachers working on the “Claim a County” project and used by the children as a guide for the summer classes.
At the end of the training, children report what they have learned through the summer training to their parents, friends, teachers, and local authorities, and some students successfully participate in regional and national competitions, giving them the opportunity to see the results of the summer training in real life.
Spring and Fall’s Training;
We organize short-term Personal Development training, cognitive and friendly competitions for local officials, teachers, doctors, school students, families and parents.
“Gift of Love project”
Within the context of social responsibility, the Gift of Love project in rural areas has been working with the local Governor's office and veterinarians since 2017 to give sheep as gifts to families of the target group as food aid. Every year between 2017 and 2022, the "Gift of Love Project" has been implemented in 103 districts of 16 provinces, and 10,104 sheep have been given to 2,816 families in cooperation with 535 veterinarians.
Day care for the children of employees of the organization started in 2006. Currently, about 10 nursery age and preschool aged groups participate. Continuous organization of day care activities contributes to solving child care needs of the employees of the organization.
V.E.T. Net’s goal is reaching out to new veterinary graduates with practical hands-on veterinary training by working with V.E.T. Net professional staff veterinarians and long-term veterinary advisors in the small and large animal clinics and training centers for 6 months. Effective science-based veterinary diagnostics, procedures, overview of animal health care, production medicine, treatments, and proper use of medications will be taught to these interns.
V.E.T. Net would like to train six veterinary interns each year following graduation from the veterinary university. Therefore, we hope to have these individuals experience practical clinical training combined with classroom discussion/lectures, English language courses, and additional professional skills advancements such as financial courses, computer skills, and personal character traits.
As of October 1, 2018, 7 graduates of Internship program are working in private practice veterinary clinics and ambulatory veterinary services rather than abandoning their veterinary skills to other occupations. Three graduates continue pursuing their professional degree abroad and practicing their veterinary skills at the same time.
The interns will develop lasting friendships with V.E.T. Net staff and personal clinical colleagues/mentors for future advice and recommendations. The value of this program, we hope, will be acknowledged by the veterinary school, its graduates, and animal health professionals in Mongolia. As well as, the Mongolian herders, who will personally experience the improvement and quality of veterinary care they receive from these veterinarians who participate in the internship program.
Since 2001 “Enerekh” Small Animal Clinic and Training Center (SACTC) has become popular among the Ulaanbaatar (UB) citizens. Our faithful services are appreciated by many pet lovers.
Currently a team of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, groomers, receptionists and support staff are at your service.

Mongolia V.E.T. Net NGO conducts veterinary and business training programs and projects for the purposes of:
Among these veterinary programs, Veterinary Continuing Education (VET CE) is the one that has helped the greatest number of veterinarians and herders in Mongolia.
The first VET CE was successfully implemented through the partnership of Mercy Corp and USDA during the years of 2005-2008.
In 2008 World Vision International, CHF, Samaritan’s Purse and SDC funded the VET CE. During this time 1024 veterinarians of the 700 rural veterinary practices in twenty-one aimags of Mongolia were taught professional veterinary and business topics.
A Model Herder program was successfully implemented in 7 western aimags (Bayan-Ulgii, Uvs, Khovd, Zavkhan, Gobi-Altai, Bayankhongor and Arkhangai) from funding by the Livestock project of SDC during 2009 – 2011.
The Veterinary Continuing Education program utilizes veterinary experts, professors and professionals from all over the world: USA, United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia along with native veterinarians. VET CE trainings consist of two components. Firstly V.E.T. Net staff veterinarians conduct the training in the City. Secondly, they lead the remote veterinarians in hands-on veterinary practical training in the countryside. This enables the veterinarians to learn many practical applications and exchange the experiences. Western veterinary professionals often come to be part of these trainings.
Mongolian veterinarians appreciate these practical trainings because of the opportunities to learn to handle the modern veterinary drugs and equipment, practice diagnosing and treating sick animals, performing surgeries, studying modern veterinary medicine and techniques; and actually helping sick animals during the trainings.
Through the VET CE program, Mongolia V.E.T. Net NGO has registered approximately fifty veterinary drugs with the government and imports them into Mongolia on a regular basis. These high quality, modern, veterinary drugs are manufactured in the USA, England, Australia, Northern Ireland, France and New Zealand. Veterinarians and the herders appreciate these veterinary drugs very much.
Mongolia V.E.T. Net NGO will continue our commitment to support the rural veterinary practices through Veterinary Continuing Education along with informative programs and projects, with a constant veterinary drug and equipment supply.
