Pet charity StreetVet has collaborated with sustainable small paper business Lil Wabbit for a range of Christmas cards, gift tags and wrapping paper that will support pets and owners experiencing homelessness.

Featuring eight beautiful hand-painted portraits of some of the charity's registered pet patients, the festive range will donate 50% of all sales towards StreetVet to help provide essential veterinary care for these pets.

According to Homeless Hub, approximately one in 10 people experiencing homelessness have pets, with many hostels operating a no-dogs policy when providing accommodation. Life on the streets makes it difficult to access fundamental vet care, which is why sales of these cards will support an owner in need.

The gorgeous pets featured on the designs include Spy, Rocco, Loki, Valentine, Belle, Alfie, TyTy and Saba. Each with their own incredible story, StreetVet has helped each of them to find a new home.

"We completely adore Georgi's designs, they tell the story of our clients in such a warm way and we hope people fall in love with them as much as we did," Jade Statt, StreetVet co-founder and Clinical Director, says. "Having the support of Lil Wabbit's sales will mean we can help more clients this winter, one of the toughest periods for those experiencing homelessness, so we are incredibly grateful."

Georgi Doig, founder of Lil Wabbit, adds: "We are thrilled to be able to support such an amazing cause over this Christmas period. I have really enjoyed having the opportunity to paint each animal and learn about their unique stories, and I hope the sales of the cards and tags can make a real contribution to the vital work StreetVet do."

With only 10% of UK hostels accepting pets in the UK, StreetVet's Accredited Hostel scheme enables those experiencing homeless to avoid the choice between securing accommodation and staying with their pets. Wonderfully, too, they also provide people will free 24-hour emergency phone numbers, pet provisions, and other support services.

Christmas cards are a great way to spread warm wishes during the festive season, so why not pick up a pack of these beautiful designs and spread some love to pets in need. Lil Wabbit's StreetVet Christmas collection is available to buy online at Etsy and lilwabbit.co.uk, as well in 15 stores across the country.
