We are able to offer limited financial assistance to those on welfare benefits

We are able to offer limited financial assistance to those on welfare benefits

The branch will try and help with urgent vet treatment for pets.   However, branch funds are limited and we can only offer financial help to pet owners in receipt of the following benefits:

 

  • Council Tax Benefit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance.

 

 

If you live in our branch area and need help, please phone or text  the branch on  Tel: 079 723 686 02.

 Please do not let your pet suffer.  If an animal you own or are responsible for is suffering or in pain, you are required under the  Animal Welfare Act to take them to a vet

 

We also recommend that pet owners consider taking out pet insurance.  This will help you to cope financially with any unexpected bills.

 

RECEIPT OF PROOF OF BENEFIT WILL BE REQUESTED
