WHO WE ARE
Vet SOS provides free veterinary care to the companion animals of homeless San Franciscans and links their human guardians with health care services. Operating since 2001, Vet SOS is a project of SFCCC's Street Outreach Services (SOS) program.
WHAT WE DO
Vet SOS provides twice monthly pop-up veterinary clinics in San Francisco with the help of our veterinary volunteers.
RESPONDING TO COVID
To reduce risk to volunteers and clients Vet SOS has moved from large drop-in clinics to more frequent, smaller clinics where visits are by appointment only. All clinics are held outdoors, masks are required (N95s and face shields are offered to volunteers), and physical distancing is practiced between clients and volunteers.
