Why it matters
Mayhew animal home has always been a staple in the local community. It is a refuge center for lost cats and dogs, and a source of valuable information for pet owners and pet lovers. Their mission is to ensure the welfare of all animals, include those who do not have the access to the right care and protection. Most importantly, they work with the vulnerable homeless community in the local area to ensure their pets are well and healthy. Pets provide a warm body, a friend and companion for those living on the streets, which is why the work Mayhew does is so important.
