Our Volunteers' Stories

Volunteers are a hugely important part of PDSA. Our volunteers:

  • Help run our shops and raise invaluable funds to treat pets across the UK.
  • Support staff in our offices with things like finance, marketing, education and fundraising.
  • Put our clients at ease in our Pet Hospital waiting rooms.

We've asked some of our fantastic volunteers to tell us more about what it's like to volunteer for PDSA. Read their stories to find out:
