Trusty Paws

46

“In 2014, Ruby Shorrock, then a veterinary student at the University of Glasgow, formed the founding committee of The Trusty Paws Clinic.

Ruby became concerned about the homeless and their pets in Glasgow after discovering there were no hostels which allowed dogs, or any accessible veterinary care for them. Taking inspiration from a similar charity at Nottingham vet school, Ruby and her peers soon had the first clinic up and running!

Trusty Paws now has another branch in Liverpool. They have connected with various homeless charities along the way and are continuing to expand their team of dedicated volunteers.

Trusty Paws has come a long way since 2014, with Ruby being awarded by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). We can’t wait to see what the future will hold!”

Back in 2014 I approached ruby, having heard about her idea and said I wanted to be their volunteer photographer and so I started documenting their clinics and have been doing it regularly ever since, something I really enjoy and I have built up a wee rapport with some of the regular clients.

One of those clients is the lovely David who has been coming with Casper from the start
