Life has altered significantly for everyone over the last year. Our normal routines have turned upside down. One thing that hasn’t changed is the impact of your support.
At a time when everyone’s anxiety has increased, our clients are living with minimal or no support networks and are relying more heavily on our services.
We at StreetVet are continuing to provide veterinary services and support to the people and pets who need us most. We have adapted our way of working by ensuring strict safety protocols are in place to protect our clients, patients, our staff and volunteers.
As we all continue to navigate through the pandemic, our volunteers have welcomed new clients in the majority of our locations. COVID-19 has had a devasting effect on people experiencing homelessness and their pets. We want to make sure that they can rely on us being there when they need us.
Need for our service and provision have increased and our veterinary costs have doubled and in some months tripled over lockdown.
We have set a target of £5000 to help cover some of our Lockdown 3.0 veterinary costs.

Welcome to StreetVet
Homelessness is a growing problem in the UK and an increasing number of homeless people have dogs. The bond between many homeless people and their dogs is profound and the health and wellbeing of their canine companions is often a major priority for their owners.
Life on the streets makes it difficult to access the fundamental vet care required to ensure the health and vitality these dogs deserve. StreetVet is a registered practice with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and has been established by a dedicated team of professional vets and veterinary nurses to bring that essential care to homeless people and their dogs across the capital. Together the StreetVet team take their experience out onto the streets of ever expanding locations, seeking out people; their dogs living rough, and delivering care and support required to ensure their combined wellbeing.
Combined with the critical support of a host of renowned organisations backing our team of qualified professionals, StreetVet is changing the future for homeless dogs who may otherwise have to go without the care they need and deserve.
