The Street Vets:

Free Animal Clinics Where They Are Most Needed.

Our volunteer corps of veterinary professionals and helpers bring routine wellness care, treatment for medical problems, supplies and education right into the neighborhoods with the highest intake to the animal shelters, and with the least access to veterinary care.  

We adhere to trauma-informed and community-centered models of care.  

Respect, reliability, and quality of care are our priorities.
