It’s no secret that homeless individuals frequently face difficulties obtaining veterinary treatment for their animals, but one man is working to change that.
Meet Dr. Stewart Kwane, a self-described “street vet” who has devoted his life to compassionately caring for the cute pets of California’s homeless people.
He has been on this mission since 2011, and as well as treating the animals, he also pays for basic food and veterinary costs (if needed) out of his own pocket!
When he is doing his rounds, he often carries a medical bag with him, so he can be at hand to help any animal he spots that may be in need.

“Dinker has a very rare condition that requires surgery from a specialist,” and although Dr. Kwane is doing all he can, the procedure he really needs will be extremely expensive.
“I’ve experienced the most genuine stories of love, compassion, struggle, and hope.”
