PDSA vet with a pet after operation

PDSA is a charity. We help sick and injured animals whose owners are facing financial difficulty through our 48 Pet Hospitals and our Pet Care scheme.

Pets are part of the family and no pet should suffer because their owner has fallen on hard times. No-one can be sure of what’s around the corner and shouldn’t have to give up their beloved pet because they’ve been put in a situation where they can no longer afford their vet care.

That’s where we are here to help.

PDSA offers a lifeline to families in need so they never have to make the heart-breaking decision to give their pet up. We help 1.7 million families every year by offering free and low-cost treatment to those in need, but there are still so many who need our help.

But our work doesn’t stop at treating poorly pets in need. We also work hard to educate pet owners on how to take the very best care of their furry friends, from when they’re thinking of getting a pet through to caring for them in their senior years.

We also run lots of helpful events and programmes to help the community – from the next generation of pet owners to the more seasoned owners.

By shopping with us, you’re helping us to continue our life-saving work and improve welfare for pets across the country. If you’d like to get involved with more of what we do, take a look at how you can help:
