StreetVet Southampton launched in June 2018 with a small committee of 4 veterinary surgeons and 1 veterinary nurse. We now have team of 23 vets and nurses with the number of volunteers growing every week.
We began our Southampton station alongside New Help for Homeless and The New Way Ministries who provide food and help to the homeless. We run a weekly outreach every Wednesday providing veterinary care as well as blankets, dog coats, toys and food.
Thanks to our team in Southampton, we are now running Saturday outreaches in addition to Wednesday. We are currently in conversation with local hostels to perform monthly visits to the pets and owners that live there.
As well as our great volunteers, we also have a number of veterinary practices who generously offer us their support. Animed Shedfield look after any patients that need emergency care overnight. Brook House Veterinary Centre have offered to perform surgical and medical treatment for our patients if required.
We would also like to say thank you to the other locations of StreetVet, especially the London team. Without Jade, Sam, and Gabriel’s help we would be lost without your advice and guidance.
