Trusty Paws Clinic for homeless people making a difference in Glasgow

A group of fourth year vet students from Glasgow are making an impact in their local community through running clinics for homeless people and their pets. Though the clinics the students provide things such as vaccinations, flea and worming treatment, micro chips and general clinical exams, as well as other things including food and collars to dog owners who are homeless. The idea for the scheme belongs to Ruby Shorrock, and since their launch last March they have gone from strength to strength, holding their first clinic in October. They are working in partnership with the Glasgow Simon Community to combat the causes and effects of homelessness.

What fantastic, much needed and much appreciated work. AVS sends its best to everyone involved.
