PDSA, the UK’s leading veterinary charity, has launched a new ‘ER for Pets’ directory on its website that enables pet owners to identify the location of not only PDSA PetAid services, but also the charitable services of many other animal charities.
The ‘ER for Pets’ web page provides contact and location details of all PDSA PetAid services – the 46 PDSA PetAid hospitals and 153 PDSA PetAid practice locations. In addition, people can search for the location of PDSA shops, fundraising groups and regional offices, and the charitable services provided by the RSPCA, Dogs Trust, Cat’s Protection, The Blue Cross, Battersea Dogs Home, and Wood Green Animal Shelters.
PDSA Director General, Marilyn Rydstr?m, comments:
“As the leading provider of free veterinary care to the sick and injured pets of those in need, PDSA was delighted to be at the forefront of the development of the online ‘ER for Pets’ directory – a project which further reinforces the charity’s ongoing responsible pet care activity.”
PDSA treats the sick and injured pets of people in need, specifically those who are in receipt of Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit – people unable to afford private veterinary fees.
For anyone unsure of where to go for PDSA PetAid services, then the ‘ER for Pets’ directory Pdsa.org.uk/er4pets is the ideal way to locate their nearest facility. Likewise, those pet owners requiring the services of other animal charities can simply change the search options for information on services in their area.
The ‘ER for Pets’ idea was created by members of the Chief Executives of Small Animal Charities group (CEoSAC), which meets regularly to discuss ways of developing charitable animal welfare services.
Marilyn Rydstr?m, continues:
“People often contact PDSA to ask about the services and contact details of other animal charities. The same is true for other animal charities. It was with this in mind that members of CEoSAC identified the need for a comprehensive listings directory that could provide pet owners with a broad range of animal charity contacts at the touch of a button.”
