Homelessness is sadly on the rise in the UK. Whilst working with a local group who help the homeless, an idea was formed to create a team of veterinary professionals to care for homeless and vulnerable animals. The very first outreach in April 2016, was in Newcastle armed only with a vet, vet nurse and a bag of supplies. Street paws has grown significantly since then and now has a supportive team of over 130 veterinary professionals. We have plans to expand further across the UK please get in touch if you are a veterinary professional who would like to support an outreach in your area.
Street Paws currently provide monthly outreach in Newcastle, Cardiff, Leeds, Manchester and York. A team of vets and veterinary nurses provide vaccinations, micro-chipping, health checks, flea & worming and advice to the homeless and vulnerably housed.
Fundraising is a major part of our operation as we currently receive no external funding. We rely on public donations to fund our veterinary treatments and other non-veterinary items such as food, coats, leads and collars. Street Paws trustees are in the process of applying for Charity Status with the Charity Commission. We expect to become a registered charity by the end of 2017. This will enable us to apply for sponsorship, funding and grants in the future.
Our aim is to provide vital links for these animals who would otherwise receive no veterinary care. If you see an animal in need please contact us directly via email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating location and description if possible.
