Leading vet charity, PDSA has been helping sick and injured animals for almost 100 years.
At PDSA, saving, protecting and healing pets is what we’re all about. We are dedicated to improving pet wellbeing in three very special ways - by educating owners, preventing disease and carrying out life-saving operations.
PDSA - turning breaking hearts into beating hearts
Every year we provide essential care and treatment to thousands of sick and injured pets that are brought to PDSA Pet Hospitals. Their owners sadly can’t afford the treatment fees elsewhere - but we can’t stand by and see them suffer. Pets are members of the family. Our four-legged friends give unconditional love and they can often be a person’s only companion. They don’t ever deserve to become victims of economic and social hardship. They can’t help themselves... but we can - with your help.
We are the UK’s leading veterinary charity, helping dogs, cats, rabbits, budgies and other ‘small furries’ like guinea pigs, hamsters and even chinchillas. Every year veterinary staff at our 51 Pet Hospitals and over 380 Pet Practices work tirelessly to provide 2.7 million veterinary treatments - including 440,000 preventative treatments - helping over 470,000 much-loved pets and bringing peace of mind to 300,000 owners.
