Welcome to Charity Spotlight – a handy reference point for good folk doing great work. We’re helping to raise the profile of this diverse group of people and we encourage you to get involved with them, be it fundraising or even volunteering.

We would like to include all charities – large and small – that have anything at all to do with the world of dogs. If you’d like to see your organisation featured in these pages, please call Luci Mclean on 01276 858880 for more details. And if you’ve not yet got charity status but are still doing great work, have a chat with Mike – we may still be able to include you!

Leading research to improve dogs’ lives

The Animal Health Trust (AHT) is the UK’s leading veterinary and scientific research charity, dedicated to the health and welfare of your animal.

We believe the best treatment relies on the best knowledge, and our dedicated teams of vets and scientists work around the clock to find the answers to better treat and, where possible, prevent, painful diseases and debilitating injuries. What we learn we put into practice, so animals all over the world benefit from our discoveries.

Since 1942 we have led the way in preventing disease and injury, helping countless dogs, cats and horses live healthier, happier lives. Key areas of our work include cancer, blindness, epilepsy and inherited diseases in dogs. We receive no government funding, and rely on grants and generous donations to fund our life-saving research.

You can be a life-saver too. 

From as little as £1 a week you can enter our charity lottery, where you will have the chance of winning up to £25,000 in cash in the weekly draw. You could be the next lucky winner – knowing your contribution is helping to save animals’ lives!
