STREET PAWS MAKING POSITIVE IMPACT AT HOMELESS SUPPORT PROJECT

Street Paws held its first outreach session at the Homeless Support Project (HSP) on Railway Road two weeks ago and provided help to four dogs.

The organisation offers free veterinary care including vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, and general health checks to animals in need.

Michelle Southern, who has launched the project in 14 cities and towns across the country, was contacted by vets in Leigh six months ago to give help.

She said: “The volunteers at HSP see a lot of people at the soup kitchens that they put on who have animals and need some extra help.

“We now have 12 volunteers and have just held our first session where we saw four dogs, which is virtually unheard of during our first visit somewhere.
