PDSA is the UK’s largest vet charity, providing free and reduced cost veterinary services to the sick and injured pets of people in need. We are dedicated to improving pet welfare by educating owners, preventing disease and carrying out life-saving operations.

Founded 100 years ago by animal welfare pioneer Maria Dickin, CBE, we've treated millions of pets across the UK.

PDSA receives no government funding, so relies entirely on public support.

Over the course of one year, PDSA:

  • In addition to our life-saving work we also run a world-famous animal awards programme.
