    Animal Welfare Officer month: Crisis at Christmas and Our Animal Welfare Team

    The Mayhew has been supporting Crisis at Christmas for the last few years and our Animal Welfare team were there in force last year. Last December our Animal Welfare Officer team, along with our vet team, were in Islington at one of the Crisis venues where homeless people can receive temporary shelter over the Christmas period.

    We have worked closely with Crisis for over 15 years, offering help and support to homeless people and their dogs during the festive period. It can be an incredibly difficult time of year for a homeless person, and often their dog is their only friend so we ensure they are not separated from their dog whilst at the Crisis centre. We offer advice and assistance on caring for their dog while they receive help and support from the charity.

    The Mayhew team were on hand to provide free general vet health checks, administer preventative treatments (flea/worm treatments) and microchips, and offer advice on neutering. We were able to help 3 dogs and 2 cats on the day and we gave out food, collars, tags and dog coats to help keep the animals healthy and warm during the winter time.

    Our Animal Welfare Officers work with a number of other homeless projects throughout the year, where they offer support and advice for all dog-owners. They visit each centre 5 times a year, where we also promote our Pet Refuge scheme for anyone who wishes to go into rehab and needs help caring for their dog.

    You’ll find The Mayhew Animal Welfare team at the following projects across London:

    • Thames Reach, Graham House
    • St Mungo’s
    • Spitalifields Crypt Trust
    • Broadway Homeless Hostel and Drop in Centre
