PDSA is the UK’s leading veterinary charity. We exist to provide free and low-cost vet care to the pets of people in need. Without PDSA, the poorest and most disadvantaged in our society could not afford treatment for their sick or injured pets, leading to unnecessary animal suffering and the human anxiety this creates.
Operating through a UK-wide network of 48 Pet Hospitals, we provide 2.7 million veterinary treatments every year to prevent the suffering of animals and to relieve the effects of poverty on families and communities nationwide.
PDSA has been a lifeline for sick and injured pets since 1917. We believe that every pet deserves a happy and healthy life.
We are a leading authority on all things concerning pet health and wellbeing: whether it’s running the debate on pet obesity, conducting Britain’s biggest annual pet wellbeing survey, raising the status of animals through our animal awards programme, or simply celebrating their contribution to our lives.
