Find your nearest PDSA PetAid hospital
The PDSA PetAid Hospital Appeal is currently working hard to raise £6million to build much needed PDSA PetAid hospitals in Birmingham, Cardiff and Plymouth.
These three areas have been identified as those most in need of expansion. The number of pets that are helped in these areas has increased by 30% in recent times and as a result the hospitals are stretched to their limits.
We are always looking for much needed funds to continue providing veterinary aid to sick and injured pets.
Birmingham’s Quinton PetAid Hospital is one of the busiest PDSA bases across the country, providing a staggering 87,568 treatments for nearly 14,000 sick and injured pets in 2011. Working at top capacity, Quinton see’s an average of 151 pets every day, although this has been known to be as many an overwhelming 216 different animals in one day. Unsurprisingly, the cost of running the Quinton PetAid Hospital in 2011 was a huge £1,296,515.
2011 was a very busy year for Cardiff’s current PetAid Hospital, with 70,500 treatments being performed on 11,000 pets in need. On any one day vets and resources were stretched to treating up to 182 pets . Never wanting to turn an animal in need away, Cardiff has seen a 50% increase in demand for its services in the last few years and the cost of running the Cardiff PetAid Hospital was £938,977 in 2011.
In 2011 Plymouth PetAid Hopsital performed a total of 55,347 treatments on nearly 8.500 pets. On average, this meant that Plymouth PDSA vets were treating 111 pets every day, with this being stretched to 166 different pets treated on their busiest day. The annual cost of running the PetAid Hospital and enabling all these procedures to occur was £878,221.
