Helping the Homeless care for their pets
For a homeless person, a pet is often their closest companion. Often, a pet will help them stay safe when they are sleeping rough, provides comfort and companionship, and many homeless people tell us that caring for their pet is what keeps them from being tempted by drugs or alcohol when they are at their lowest. But for a person on the street, caring for a pet and affording veterinary care can be an almost impossible task to go alone.
One of the charities that is very close to our hearts, is Pets In The Park, a group of dedicated volunteer vets, vet nurses, and other volunteers who every month, help homeless people across Australia to care for their pets.
As our way of helping the homeless to care for their pets, Paws for A Purpose has pledged to help fund the great work that Pets In The Park does across Australia.
