North Tyneside Vets4Pets
The team at North Tyneside demonstrated in an extraordinary way, how working together for a charitable purpose can bond the team, improve morale and increase overall wellbeing.
In April 2016, North Tyneside Vets4Pets set up their own charity, Newcastle Street Paws to provide health checks, vaccines, microchips, flea and wormer products and medication for ear and eye infections for the pets of homeless people on the streets of Newcastle. The team give up 5 to 6 hours a week to Street Paws and fundraise to finance the treatments. It has had fantastic effect in bonding the team together, as well as the positive media it has attracted to the practice. The project has been so successful that now they are getting enquires from veterinary practices in other towns and cities wanting to set up their own Street Paws.
