Transport to the vet
Transport to the vet
Provided by BowMeow
We provide volunteers who provide transport to the vet if needed. As people grow older they are often worried about what would happen to their beloved pets and so choose not to have a pet. But research shows there are huge health benefits to pet ownership. We want to provide enough local support that people don't decide not to have a pet simply because of such worries. We are a not-for-profit community group committed to helping people care for their pets.
