Street Paws’ mission is to provide relief from animal suffering by providing free veterinary care to the pets of homeless people, the vulnerably housed and those in extreme poverty. Street Paws works in 24 cities across the UK, engaging with rough sleepers and providing vaccinations, flea/worming treatment, micro-chipping and pet supplies. Street Paws also works with hostels to make them pet-friendly, something which is frequently a barrier for homeless people seeking accommodation. Street Paws is using funding from The Fore to expand its core team, enabling it to work with significantly more homeless people and their pets, and collaborate with more hostels to provide pet-friendly accommodation.
