Ethically-minded pet brand Earth Animal has joined forces with charity StreetVet to raise money for the charity’s work supporting the pets of people experiencing homelessness.
Founded by husband and wife Dr Bob and Susan Goldstein, Earth Animal is dedicated to finding humane, holistic and sustainable ways of enhancing and preserving the quality of life of animals, people and the Earth. It will donate 1% of all UK net sales of its popular No-Hide® Chews in 2021 to StreetVet, just in time for the International Day of Charity (5th September).
Funds raised by the UK sales of Earth Animal’s No-Hide® Chews, which are expected to total around £20,000, will support essential veterinary care for pets living in a StreetVet accredited hostel. The hostel scheme, launched by the charity in 2020, aims to ensure people experiencing homelessness can be housed with their pets. Otherwise, they face the impossible choice of a roof over their heads or giving up their pet.
Jade Statt, StreetVet co-founder and Clinical Director, said: “Earth Animal is a truly purpose-driven company and we are delighted to be able to utilise its contribution to support vital services such as hospitalisation, surgery, and X-ray procedures. It will make a real difference in helping us care for pets, as well as positively impacting our StreetVet clients.”
Earth Animal co-founder Susan Goldstein said “When we heard about StreetVet’s mission, we were completely inspired and in awe of their outstanding work. The bond between a person and their dog is an age-old marvel. However, we recognise that, for those experiencing homelessness, dogs are more than just a source of companionship and loyalty. For many, they are all they have — and the bond is stronger than anything most of us can even comprehend. Supporting StreetVet is a complete honour for our team.”
No-Hide® Chews are available from pet stores nationwide, in-store and online. See a list of retailers here.
