We provide free veterinary care & services to pets of those experiencing homelessness


On 3rd June myself and my husband Josh will walk/run the South Downs Way from Winchester to Eastbourne covering over 160km with over 4,150m of elevation over 4 days. This will be to raise money for both The Rocking Horse and Street Vet charities.   (

In addition, Josh will pull a tyre behind him as part of his preparation to walk the last degree to The South Pole which is a similar distance just a lot colder and at a higher altitude! I’m excited to join him on this training expedition and it is a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a charity I have been incredibly inspired by and I feel passionately that pets provide much needed support to their owners in the homeless community. I hope to volunteer with them in the future and  this is the start of my journey in support of this amazing charity. Please read more about the fantastic work carried out by members of my work community for Street Vet below. 

Victims of the UK homelessness epidemic often have scant support, except for, in a growing number of cases, the companionship of their pets.Many have had their pets since before losing their homes, which makes their bond even more profound, such that their pet's well-being is a life-shaping priority. Our volunteer vets and vet nurses provide accessible fundamental veterinary care. We vaccinate, microchip, treat for fleas and worms, prescribe pain relief, help fight infections, perform surgeries and sometimes just sit and listen.
