30,000 poorly pets treated every year

Our four animal hospitals treat sick and injured pets when their owners can’t afford private fees. We’ve also got welfare clinics at some of our rehoming centres and mobile clinic's. We treat around 30,000 poorly pets every year.

Our veterinary services are available to pets whose owners are on certain means-tested benefits or low incomes. If you fall into this category, you need to check to see if you are in the catchment area for one of our hospitals or clinics.

Blue Cross does not get any money of the government or local authority and we rely fully on donations to run our veterinary services.  So any donation you make, however small, towards the treatment your pet receives will be very welcome.


Hospitals

Each of our hospitals has a catchment area. Please select a hospital from the list to see its catchment area.


Mobile clinics

We have a mobile clinic that travels to four different locations in London. They offer basic veterinary attention, vaccinations, microchipping and advice on animal care.


Pet Care Clinics

Four of our rehoming centres have veterinary welfare clinics for people on low incomes who don’t live in London. Each of our welfare clinics has a catchment area. Please select a clinic from the list to see its catchment area.
