Fetch by The Dodo, a leading pet insurance provider, has launched the 101 Donations Campaign to support Project Street Vet (PSV), a nonprofit public charity that provides free veterinary care, treatment and support to the pets of individuals experiencing homelessness and housing vulnerability. Through the campaign, Fetch will match every donation up to $101,000 dollars, helping Project Street Vet provide essential care to pets in need and expand its mission to more communities in 2023.
Donations made to the campaign, which runs through the end of 2022, will help Project Street Vet offer a variety of veterinary support to pets and their parents – from routine exams to life-saving surgeries. They also take care of the things that fall somewhere in the middle, like vaccinations and flea and tick medications. Through Fetch’s donations and fundraising efforts, they’ve raised more than $100,000 this year, enabling Project Street Vet to fund more than 450 cases and expand outside of Southern California, where they launched their initial operations.
Samantha McKinnon, Chief Experience Officer of Fetch, said, “Heading into the giving season, we are incredibly proud to continue our support for Project Street Vet. Following the organization’s recent expansion to Atlanta, our goal of the 101 Donations campaign is to enable Project Street Vet to continue its growth to other areas of the nation to provide pets of the unhoused with routine and life-saving health care. Through this growth, we hope to drive greater awareness of Project Street Vet’s impactful work and inspire others to get involved.”
Project Street Vet was founded in 2020 by Dr. Kwane Stewart, a licensed and practicing veterinarian. Through his work, he provides life-saving veterinary care to the unhoused Southern Californian community at no cost to the pet parent.
Stewart said, “Contributions to our mission through donations or volunteering have a tremendous impact in helping us continue our work and provide critical pet care to the communities that need it most. We are extremely grateful for the continued support from Fetch Pet Insurance, and I look forward to seeing how this donation campaign will chart a new future for Project Street Vet.”
As part of the campaign, Fetch and Project Street Vet are partnering with GivingTuesday.org to further amplify the mission of Project Street Vet. On Nov. 29, Stewart and Fetch will collaborate with GivingTuesday to highlight Project Street Vet, sharing how others can get involved and contribute to animal philanthropy in their own communities.
