How your donation will be spent

It will cost £2.4m to build the hospital that Manchester’s pets deserve. With seven consulting rooms, two operating theatres, a dedicated wellbeing hub and additional kennels, our expert vet team will be able to save, protect and improve the lives of thousands of Manchester pets for many years to come.

We can’t do it alone though, which is why we’re giving our supporters detailed access to our building plans and blueprints. So you can see exactly how much it costs to build the amazing, life-saving spaces that your donations, big or small, will help make a reality. Together we build a future for Manchester’s pets.

The waiting room

The waiting room is the busy frontline of our hospital – where furry family members are checked in for treatment, where emergencies come rushing through with our team poised to save them, where owners wait anxiously for news, and where very excitable reunions take place!

Our waiting room must stand up to it all – but our current site is small, cramped and stressful for everyone in it. Our new waiting room will have separate areas for dogs, cats and small furries so everyone has their own space, which will reduce stress and anxiety for already poorly patients.

Total cost: £287,394.58

Canine recovery ward

Lots of comfortable, quiet kennels for dogs to relax and recover in after treatment, away from the hustle and bustle. There’s also an outdoor area on hand to stretch those legs and have a little comfort break.

Feline recovery ward

Our feline friends are solitary creatures and don’t like too much noise (especially from other hospital patients such as dogs) so a dedicated area of their own is purrrrfect to ensure they feel safe and secure, and help them towards a speedy recovery.

Total cost: £34,239.46

Small animals recovery ward

Don’t forget the little guys! Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Hamsters are all prey animals, and therefore easily frightened. Recovery next to a pet that would naturally be a predator can cause them extreme stress, so a nice, warm and secluded cage away from the noisy pets makes for one happy bunny!

Operating theatres

The heartbeat of the hospital, our operating theatres are where the real life-saving happens. From routine procedures to emergency surgeries, the operating theatre demands all our team’s expertise as veterinary professionals and compassion as human beings – for every little furry life that’s in their hands.

In our current building, we are very limited with the number of operations we can perform. Our new Centre’s state-of-the-art theatres, one for major and one for minor operations, will rise to the everyday challenges that our amazing experts face.

Wellbeing hub

A first for PDSA across the UK– a wellbeing hub for the local community. Manchester’s new Pet Wellbeing Centre won’t just be about saving pets, it’ll also create healthier and happier communities.

How can we achieve that? The answer is prevention and education.

From puppy classes to pet bereavement support, vaccination and microchip services to school visits, our new Wellbeing Centre will stop so much unnecessary suffering throughout the city and beyond. By educating current and future owners, as well as saving pets, we won’t be simply sticking a bigger plaster on the same problems. With the Pet Wellbeing Hub you can help us create a remarkable legacy for Manchester, one which will transform lives for generations to come.

Total cost: £53,927.14
