About Blue Cross

We find happy homes for abandoned or unwanted pets and we keep pets healthy by promoting welfare and providing treatment.

Blue Cross

We're a charity that has been helping sick, injured, abandoned and homeless pets since 1897. Pets help us in so many ways and they depend entirely on us. That’s why at Blue Cross we believe in helping pets because pets help us.

We help thousands of pets in need every month, providing veterinary care, expert behaviour help and find them loving happy homes, as well as advice and education for current or future pet owners and pet bereavement support. We develop lifelong relationships with pets and owners, providing quality care that is accessible and non-judgemental. With your support we can give back to more pets in need.

Pets change lives. We change theirs.

Our vision is that every pet will enjoy a healthy life in a happy home and we won’t rest until we achieve it. But we really need your help.

We care for around 40,000 pets every year but we know it’s not enough – there are many, many more out there who still desperately need us and we must be there for them.

  • £2 a day could keep a cat warm and safe at one of our centres
  • £20 could fund an unwanted horse’s basic hoof care
  • £136 could provide clinical care for a homeless dog during their stay with us
