Thanks to your support, Mayhew has continued to help hundreds of animals and people in 2018. Take a look at our special round up video to see some of the gorgeous cats and dogs we cared for last year!
Our kennels, cattery and adoption teams had a busy year caring for and finding perfect forever homes for 98 dogs and 380 cats. We even waved a fond goodbye to our longest stayer Magnum who, after a two and a half year wait, found a special home with EastEnders actor Harry Reid. We were thrilled last year when the government announced a ban on third party sales of puppies and kittens to help clamp down on unscrupulous breeders and sellers. We look forward to the ban coming into force, which will make a difference to the lives of thousands of animals.
Away from the Home, our Animal Welfare Officers helped 786 animals avoid coming into the shelter environment and supported 1060 welfare cases across the year. We continued to support homeless people and their dogs, and created a series of powerful films to demonstrate their special bond and why the work we do to keep them together is so important.
Our TheraPaws teams made 704 visits to elderly, unwell and vulnerable people across London. They also paid special visits to workplaces including Buzzfeed and Channel 4 as part of a corporate stress prevention drive inspired by World Mental Health Day 2018 and National Stress Awareness Week. Our Community Vet Clinic was busy too, with 1793 people bringing their animals to our vaccination clinics. The team also trained 24 vet students, including seven on our International Vet Training Programme who will now take their skills to their home countries to bring up animal welfare standards there.
Mayhew International vaccinated an incredible 32,431 dogs against rabies and neutered 12,109 cats and dogs. In India, 111,097 adults and children were reached by our education programmes there, a crucial step in the next generation living safely and happily alongside dogs. We were also so proud that our Afghanistan Country Director, Dr Mo, won an Animal Hero Award for his dedication and innovative work helping thousands of animals in Afghanistan.
