What is Animal Trust?
We are a Community Interest Company first opinion vets – that means we don’t have shareholders taking profits from the organisation. Instead, our aim is to deliver value to provide high-quality accessible veterinary care to pet owners.
Our values are: Breaking Barriers, One Community, Never stop Learning, and Trust. We want to be straightforward with our pricing, accessible to all especially those who need us, and consider our social, environmental and financial impact.
We have over 300 people working for us, across 11 sites in England and Wales.
Some of these sites are large, 24/7 hospitals: Bolton, Ellesmere Port and Shrewsbury.
The other sites work very closely with these hospitals and are usually just as busy!
They are Failsworth, Blackburn, Ashton, Wrexham, Dewsbury, Barnsley, Rhyl and Birkenhead.
Organisation vision & mission
Our vision is that no pet goes untreated or faces euthanasia for a condition that has a good treatment option.
Our mission: We believe in universal pet healthcare and we work to help all the pets that need us. By offering sensible veterinary care options, we not only help clients earning the real living wage to benefit from the joy of pet ownership, but we also help animals enjoy a life without the burden of treatable or preventable diseases.
We think that our customers are people who can afford to keep a pet, but struggle to afford veterinary care when their pet gets sick. They can’t access help through charities, so they are stuck in the middle. Sometimes for those pets, we are their only option.
