Blue Cross For Pets
This well-known UK Charity has been helping pets since 1897. They cater for abandoned or unwanted, ill or injured pets and do what is needed to give every pet in their care a healthy life in a happy home. Across the UK they find homes for unwanted cats, dogs, small pets and horses with a tailor made service to find the right person for them.
Blue Cross has four animal hospitals to treat sick and injured pets when owners cannot afford the fees. There are also welfare clinics at their rehoming centres and a mobile clinic in London. They currently treat about 30,000 poorly pets a year.
Many unwanted and abandoned pets have behavioural issues and Blue Cross offers ongoing support to anyone who rehomes animals from them. The Charity is a leader in the field of pet behaviour and their team regularly gives training courses and lectures.
Animal welfare is promoted to the pet owners of the future by giving talks at schools and youth groups. They also provide a range of free pet advice leaflets to current pet owners.
