    Default Inspiring stories - a vet who helped a homeless person and their dog.

    Hi all

    This popped up on my facebook

    She wasn’t being rude | dogtorbill

    Possibly a reason to get your female dog desexed - polymetra. Though it does seem easily treated if found early.

    A major risk by the vet - will he be inundated by all the homeless of the area and their sick pets? Would it be worth his while to vaccinate their pets for free?

    That's one thing that I always think about if a (homeless) person asks me for money. I'm glad they asked but what happens if I give them some? So far in my home town, never been asked by the same person twice. And one person - I felt a bit odd because I saw him later sharing a flagon of port with his mates. So I guess I made quite a few people happy but maybe not in the way they needed most.

    Thanks for sharing that story, it actually brought tears to my eyes. It is nice to know there are good people out there that are willing to help. Certainly has made me think.
    When I have been asked for money, I try to take the person to a café or something and buy them some food - doesn't always work though.

    That project hope is a great idea.

    I guess I'd want to see some sort of total funds raised and number of dogs helped - one or the other or both.
