StreetVet, which was established in 2016 initially in the London area by a team of professional vets and veterinary nurse. The aim was to provide homeless people and their pets with essential veterinary care. In their first 18 months they provided care to over 200 street dogs around the country. They are now established in at least 7x cities around the UK, a number which is ever on the increase. They provide routine preventative healthcare such as vaccinations, microchips, flea and worming treatments. In addition to this they care for pets with chronic and acute conditions, providing medications such as pain relief and performing surgery where necessary.

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.
