Pop-up clinic for pets in need

Closing the veterinary void
The University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Sydney is supporting homeless and disadvantaged Sydneysiders to access quality veterinary care for their beloved pets.
There is a crisis of care for some of our city's most vulnerable pets. Homeless and disadvantaged owners are unable to fund even the most essential of treatments to improve the wellbeing of their treasured animals.
That's why the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney is helping to provide assistance to some of Sydney's most disadvantaged pet-owners by partnering with BaptistCare to establish the HopeStreet pop-up pet clinic, which operates once a month in Woolloomooloo.
Staffed by volunteers, clinicians, veterinary nurses and students from the Faculty of Veterinary Science, the animal welfare outreach initiative is helping the most vulnerable pets of Sydney.
