Local Community Work

Find out more about our work with the elderly through our TheraPaws initiative, and our work with the homeless, with young people and with the general public.

The Mayhew strives to tackle the companion animal welfare crisis from every possible angle. We are proactive and innovative, working to help animals and their carers whatever their circumstances.

The Mayhew recognises that animal welfare issues and social welfare issues are intrinsically linked and taking our preventative initiatives out into the community means there is there is a better chance that we can prevent cases of ignorance and neglect escalating into abandonment and cruelty.

The Mayhew has a team of Animal Welfare Officers who provide ongoing support to carers and pet owners in difficulty, respond to animal welfare issues out in the community, deliver a range of initiatives, (including a Trap, Neuter, Return programme for London’s feral cats), and collaborate with government and non-government agencies to address the challenges of irresponsible ownership. They also conduct various educational projects for both adults and children.
