Our aim is to provide free preventative veterinary care to the dogs (and cats) owned by homeless or vulnerably housed people in our area.

Working in conjunction with local homeless charities, and a dedicated volunteer vet team, Bath Cats & Dogs Home has launched the Together Project, which offers free veterinary care to homeless people for their animals.

As well as providing both emergency and on-going care for illnesses and injury, we offer preventative care such as yearly vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and neutering. 

The Together Project is delivered by voluntary vets and vet nurses from Bath Vets. As well as running the clinics they take their backpack and hit the streets, proactively seeking out rough sleepers who haven’t been able to visit the clinic. They are entirely non-judgemental, simply offering support to the homeless pet owners of Bath.

 

“The Together Project gives unconditional support and love and all the good stuff that goes with it. It’s like a family”

Baby Doll

Baby Doll needed a dental operation to remove two fractured teeth, and some cream for a sore spot from a flea infection. Her owner has been bringing her back to the clinic regularly for flea and worm treatment to make sure she doesn't get sore again.

He was delighted that the Home could help his best friend, and told us that she now had a new lease of life.

 

Funding 

Each year we need to raise over £9,000 to provide the essential medicines and veterinary supplies for the Together Project.

The Together Project is a new area for us as we work to improve the welfare of animals in our community and prevent serious animal welfare problems from developing.  Where pets have loving owners, we want to help them stay together. Ultimately, we want to help vulnerable pet owners build the skills and confidence to care for their pets more independently. 

We would be delighted to hear from you if you may be interested in supporting the Together Project. to discuss further. 

Thank you to the following organisations for helping to support the Together Project.
