Being a vet is a heroic profession…
A person who saves animals for a living… what could be better?!
Veterinary science has truly come in leaps and bounds, and more and more techniques have been created to help animals in need.
And even the smallest of animals can now be saved when they are in need, rather than being euthanized.
Taking an animal to the vet isn’t cheap.
You need a lot of money to ensure the health of your pet…
The standard visit to the vet here in America is around $50, but depending on the situation, people can pay up to $300 to treat their furry companions.
Of course, our pets are totally worth it…
But not everyone has that kind of money lying around.
It’s no secret that many of the homeless community have pets, in particular dogs, and these people give every cent they own to caring for their animals.
And the health of their pets is of up-most importance.
Dr. Kwane Stewart has found some kindness in his heart for the homeless community of California.
And he spends a lot of his time walking around California treating animals who live on the streets.
And it was when the Great Recession hit in 2007 when he realized that he needed to start helping those who were less fortunate than himself.
And he treats animal allergies, skin and ear infections, flea infestations, bad teeth, and even arthritis.
“Working on the streets I’ve experienced some of the most genuine stories of love, compassion, struggle, and hope. It’s been life-changing and truly inspiring,” he said.
The GoFundMe aims to raise donations to cover all the pricey surgeries his four-legged patients need.
“The cost of minor treatments like ear infections, flea treatment, or vaccines can be around $100, whereas more serious cases like a tumor removal or dental with extractions can be $1,500… Saving a little buddy can really add up to quite a big sum of money,” he wrote on the page.
And Dr. Kwane’s appearance on his TV show, The Street Vet, more than likely helped his exposure.
Because at the end of the day, a pet is a part of the family, and for many people on the streets, their dog or cat is all they have.
