Season’s Greetings from HopeStreet

December 18, 2019

Thanks to your support, 2019 has been another busy and successful year for Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital's (UVTHS) monthly HopeStreet Pet Clinic.  

 

This year we have treated many animals through the service, seeing an average of 12 animals per pop-up clinic. Treatments range from parasite prevention, routine vaccinations, treating acute injuries and managing ongoing illnesses.   

 

We frequently refer patients to UVTHS for further evaluation and to perform any required health procedures. Some notable patients that have relied upon your generosity to the HopeStreet fund to receive these services include:  

 

Maxwell - Maxwell is an English Staffordshire terrier who was referred to the UVTHS oncology and surgery teams after cancerous cells were identified in a mass. A mast cell tumour was diagnosed which was removed surgically. Maxwell visited UVTHS regularly after surgery for bandage changes with the surgery team until he recovered fully.   

 

Shelby - Shelby is a Griffon who visited the UVTHS surgery team recently for an airway exam followed by a laparoscopic desexing procedure. We encourage our HopeStreet clients to desex their pets and will often refer them to our highly skilled surgery team.  

 

Chi Chi - Chi Chi the Chihuahua is a regular HopeStreet patient who attends HopeStreet every month. Chi Chi relies on our services to manage his heart disease. Recently, Chi Chi visited UVTHS for diagnostic imaging and blood testing to further evaluate and manage his illness.   

 

In December, we celebrated Christmas at HopeStreet. Through the generosity of our clients, we collected many donations of toys and treats which we handed out on the day.   

 

We are incredibly excited to announce that from February 2020, our service to the area will expand with the introduction of fortnightly pop-up clinics to regularly support our pets and their owners in need at Woolloomooloo.

 

Your support of our clinic has made this possible. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to your continued support in 2020.

Thank you for your support.

We wanted to share an update with you to let you know that your gift is changing lives.

 

For someone like Janine, your donation means the difference between her beloved pet dog Lobby receiving life-saving surgery, or not.

 

When Janine found out Lobby’s surgery would cost over $5,000, she didn’t think she would ever be able to afford it.  

 

“Some people have to make horrible decisions to give up their pets or take out loans,” Janine shared.

 

Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, the HopeStreet Veterinary Clinic were able to offer Janine the surgery for just $300. She couldn’t believe her luck.

 

“It was an absolute blessing. I couldn’t believe it, I was so lucky. They were so good with Lobby.” said Janine.

 

See more of Janine and Lobby’s story here.

 

Thank you for keeping Lobby’s tail wagging.
