Ruff Sleepers volunteers hold their grooming days for “dogs on the street” on the second Sunday of each month in Woolloomooloo (Currently suspended due to COVID-19). Ruff Sleepers is in need of sponsors to help continue its monthly grooming services and to start an emergency treatment fund for our furry clients.

“Homeless people’s pets can get seriously hurt,” Dr Dalton says. “This fund would ensure that, no matter what your situation in life, your best friend can get life-saving treatment if needed.”

Ruff Sleepers also advocates for:

  • More housing options for homeless pet owners
  • The establishment of a veterinary hospital to services disadvantaged pet owners
  • Greater awareness of the value of pet ownership for mental and physical health and well-being, particularly among those facing difficult times
