PDSA is the UK’s leading vet charity. We are a national charity with a huge impact on local communities through our 48 Pet Hospitals and 380 Pet Practices across the UK. Every year, PDSA treats over 470,000 pets, helping more than 300,000 pet owners. Whether it is a single parent, someone with a disability or an elderly person living on their own, we help people from all lifestyles, by tackling poverty in a unique way.

Our work goes beyond caring for pets when they’re sick; we aim to prevent this from happening in the first place. We’re a leading authority on pet wellbeing and we’re committed to educating present and future owners on all aspects of pet ownership. We reach in excess of 90,000 children a year, educating them on the five animal welfare needs. It costs PDSA £72.9 million a year to deliver our charitable objectives. We receive no government or national lottery funding, so rely solely on generous donations to provide our services of saving pets and changing lives.
