Young People

From playing games to helping with our aims

If you’re a teenager, thanks for being interested in PDSA’s work – we’re really glad that you want to support poorly pets. Here you can find out more about getting involved in our work. And if you’re a little younger, don’t forget to check out all the fun stuff in our Kid’s Corner too.



Help raise some PettyCash

If you’d like to help a vet, help a pet, get one of our handy PettyCash fundraising packs.

There are loads of different things you can do, from holding a Battle of the Bands and hosting a fashion show to a sponsored event like climbing a mountain. And we’ll send you everything you need to get started.

Fundraise as an individual or as a group, such as a youth club, college group, or as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.


Kids Corner

Whether you’re almost an adult or just on the way, we have more great features for you to discover in our Kids Corner.

Great videos

Lots of short videos on everything from caring for pets to becoming a vet.

Games and competitions

Fun games and competitions to keep you entertained.

Education resources

Here you can find lesson plans, interactive resources and everything else you might need if you’re involved in children’s education.



Are you 14+? If you are, you can volunteer for PDSA. Here’s what you can do:

The Duke of Edinburgh Award

We’re one of the few charities who is an Approved Activity Provider for The Duke of Edinburgh Award. So come and volunteer to help a pet in a pickle.

School work experience

If your school offers you the chance to go out and get work experience, why not come to us? You’ll see how a major charity operates and get an idea of the skills you need in retail or office work.


We also offer volunteering projects for students and universities.
