A massive thank you to everyone who attended our Charity Quiz Night on Friday 31st May at The Westward Inn, Lee Mill. We had a great turn out and raised an amazing £310.01!
Every penny will go towards our charity of the year ‘StreetVet’.
StreetVet operates in 14 cities across the UK, which includes our two most local branches Plymouth and Cornwall. Several of our Vets and Nurses currently volunteer their time and skills for StreetVet, taking part in the weekly outreach programs, offering invaluable care and advice to the homeless pets of Plymouth.
Started in 2016, StreetVet was inspired by the incredible bond between a homeless man and his dog. Victims of the UK homelessness epidemic often have little support except for, in a growing number of cases, the companionship of their pets.
Some have had their pets since before losing their homes, others have had the responsibility of pet ownership thrust upon them. Irrespective, the bond between many homeless people and their pets’ is profound and their pets’ well-being is a life-shaping priority.
We know that the money we raised will help make a difference to the life of animals that need it most, and we hope to see you all again in the future.
Our next event will be our Open Day on the 14th September 2019.
