Dr. Stewart is a vet in California. Back in 2011, he was heartbroken by the amount of animals being surrendered to his clinic during the recession. As more and more people lost their homes, more and more pet owners opted to turn their companions over to a shelter.
Dr. Stewart brought his veterinary supplies to a soup kitchen event so he could treat some of the homeless pets. He says that’s when he knew he had found his purpose. Since then, he’s spent his spare time to wandering through streets and alleyways up and down the West Coast treating homeless pets. He’s been named the Street Vet and has helped more than 400 animals.
