Members of the Student Veterinary Dispensary Association roam the streets of Lyon to help homeless people and their pets, providing them with food and accessories. They hope to be allowed to treat these dogs and cats during their marauding, because the law prevents them from doing so. A letter has been written to the responsible ministry to this effect.
Single family, only social bond who remains … pets of homeless mean a lot to them. To the point, often, of go without food so that their dogs or chats have to eat, even refuse accommodation because their companions are not there not admitted.
The survival is extremely difficult for them, but it would be even more so if they had to be private of their loyal 4-legged friends.
This is what regularly observes Main Alkan, co-chair of theassociation Student veterinary clinic during his discussions with these poor people. The organization brings together 115 other volunteer veterinary students at VetAgro Sup from Lyon (The National Institute of Higher Education and Research in Food, Animal Health, Agronomic and Environmental Sciences).
They take turns to perform their bi-weekly marauding in the streets of Lyon, distributing food, sweets and accessories for dogs to their homeless owners.

For the care, on the other hand, they cannot not intervene outside, but only within the framework of their permanence within 6 shelters partners of their noble initiative. A situation that grieves veterinary students, hence the letter sent by Main Alkan at at Ministry of Agriculture and Food so that we finally give them this possibility, as reported France Inter.
The members of the association are in fact ready to use a van to ensure these ambulatory care directly in the streets, as soon as the authorization is given to them.
