Veterinarian offers free services to homeless owners and their dogs
For some homeless people, a dog is the only family they have. Worse still, many shelters do not allow dogs, which forces homeless pet owners to make a decision: spend the night in a warm shelter with a bed and a meal, or stay cold and hungry on the streets. so as not to abandon their dogs. Of course, most choose the latter.
Realizing that there was a huge lack of resources for parents of homeless pets, veterinary student Ruby Shorrock, along with a handful of classmates, opened the Trusty Paws Clinic in Glasgow, UK. She was only 22 years old at the time, and 2 years later the success of the clinic had an incredible impact on the community. She even won an award for her incredible efforts.
What’s better, Ruby and his team have inspired many other cities to open similar services to owners of homeless dogs in their own communities. open next Page to See Video
