Sue Perkins and Anna Richardson become ambassadors for StreetVet

Homeless pet charity StreetVet has announced TV presenters Sue Perkins and Anna Richardson as ambassadors.

The charity works to provide free vet care to animals living with homeless owners.

The couple are both huge animal lovers, own rescue Staffie Tiggy, and already support mental health and homeless charities.

When Perkins lost her Beagle Parker two years ago, a letter that she wrote to say goodbye to him went viral, and both women know the importance of the role dogs play in people’s lives.

Perkins said: “Anna and I are delighted to have been named as ambassadors for this remarkable charity to ensure people who are homeless get the vital care their companion animals need. Just knowing that their pet is healthy is often a huge boost to the owner’s wellbeing.”

Richardson added: “This is such a privilege and I’m looking forward to going out on the streets and seeing the work StreetVet do. The fact that the vets give their time for free to treat the animals is just remarkable. There is still good in this world.”

Sue and Anna join For The Love Of Dogs presenter Paul O’Grady, 64, who became an ambassador for the charity last November and went out with volunteers on his TV show.
