This project will only receive pledges if at least £1,500 is pledged by Tue 28 Feb 2017
Every pet should have a vet


Vets in the Community is a project set up to provide free veterinary care to pets belonging to homeless and vulnerable housed people in Nottingham.

We provide health checks, vaccinations, micro-chipping and treatment for fleas, worms and minor ailments. We can also provide advice on pet health care, for example nutrition and neutering. The clinic is led by students at the Vet School, under supervision from experienced, qualified members of staff.

The student team also fundraise and volunteer locally to raise awareness of the clinic. To date we have ran over 700 consultations for dogs, cats and rabbits, and even a ferret. Our clinic is becoming more and more popular with each month and our clientele is fast expanding.


Vets in the Community was launched as a pilot project in 2012, with initial funding from Dogs Trust and the University of Nottingham's School of Veterinary medicine and donations from alumni and friends through the Cascade Grants Programme.


The money we hope to raise will contribute towards being able to offer the following treatments to our clients:

  • Vaccines and microchips
  • Flea and worming
  • Pain relief
  • Eye and ear ointments
  • Rugs, blankets and muzzles


A £5 donation will:

  • Worm a dog for half a year
  • Provide flea treatment for a month

A £10 donation will provide:

  • Pain relief
  • Ear and eye drops *Antibiotics

A £15 donation will allow us to:

  • Microchip the pet, which is now a legal requirement of dogs in the UK since April 2016.

Thank you so much to all have donated already. Please continue to support us and help us reach a minimum of £1500 by sharing our link with your fiends, families and colleagues.

Of course you can! Any extra help you could give would be amazing and greatly appreciated :) Thank you!!!

Fantastic effort! Brilliant to have everyone coming together to support this great project - can any of us pledge the same amount again or find someone who will match you, so we can reach the £1500 in the next two weeks?
