PetSavers is the charitable division of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association and has been dedicated to improving the health of the nation’s pets since 1974. The charity's aim is to improve the health of pets by relieving the distress and pain caused by diseases for which we currently have no effective treatments.
Funded solely by charitable donations, PetSavers has invested more than £2 million in vital clinical research and training programmes over the past 40 years, in areas as diverse as kidney disease, anaemia, diabetes, feline leukaemia, deafness, cancer and heart disease, to name but a few.
There are two routes to helping the cause; either fundraising for PetSavers, by doing something as easy as having a collection box on your practice reception or holding a cake sale, or applying for a grant and having a direct influence on finding cures for diseases which affect companion animals.
