Since 2013, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised over £11 million for PDSA

People's Postcode Lottery

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery are fantastic supporters of PDSA. The generous support we receive from players is invaluable and as a result, thousands of pets in need across the UK are now living healthier, happier lives.

Thanks to this support, in 2021 we’ll be able to fund pets eligible for our free service who receive:

  • Medication for the treatment of heart disease
  • Insulin and needles for the treatment of diabetes
  • Pain relief medication (emergencies such as wounds and broken leg, as well as chronic conditions such as arthritis)

Support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery will also help support plans to build a new PDSA Pet Wellbeing Centre  in Nottingham.

Case study - Alfie

In 2021, support from players will help treat pets like Alfie – who is one of over 30,000 pets PDSA cares for who suffer from heart disease. Read his story.
