PDSA is the UK's leading vet charity. Our vision is a lifetime of wellbeing for every pet, through preventing disease, educating owners and offering lifesaving treatments. Every year we provide 2.7 million treatments, helping almost half a million pets and bringing peace of mind to 300,000 owners.
OneKind, formerly Advocates for Animals, is a UK-based animal protection charity working to end animal suffering through campaigns, research and education.
Research by OneKind has shown that 87 per cent of the UK public believe we are still a nation of animal lovers, and over half (58%) of the same respondents also thinks that maltreatment of animals is on the rise. Clearly, while the majority of people love and respect animals; it seems that many of us are not considerate of this in our day to day lives, and that we have lost our instinctive, natural connection with animals.
OneKind is currently a relatively small organisation and has to prioritise its focus of work with a view to effecting the most change it can for the benefit of animals. We have chosen to focus our main campaign efforts in three key areas
Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity. The charity rehabilitates and finds new homes for dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners. They have a network of Rehoming Centres across the UK and Ireland. People are encouraged to sponsor a dog for at least £1 a week, even if they are not able to rehome the dog.
For the dogs that have had a particularly bad start in life and would not be happy living in a normal home environment, the charity takes care of these dogs with funds from the dog sponsorship. They have also created a sanctuary where selected dogs can live together free from excessive human contact.
It also runs microchipping and neutering schemes in the United Kingdom and abroad, in order to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and stray dogs put to sleep by other organisations.
The charity is best known for its slogan "A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas", which is used either in full or shortened to "A Dog is for Life" in advertising. The phrase was created to reduce the number of dogs which are abandoned as unwanted.
Dogs Trust also also actively campaign to protect dogs from cruelty including: docking of tails and unecessary euthanasia
Cats Protection, the UK's leading feline welfare charity, helps over 194,000 cats and kittens per year through its national network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 31 adoption centres.
CP also provide an array of cat care information via their publications, website and Helpline; promotion of the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming abandoned cats and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.
We're the UK's biggest nature conservation charity - we focus on conserving the UK's wildlife and restoring and protecting its natural habitats.
We want to inspire you to give nature a home, whether you're a farmer with hundreds of acres or a gardener nurturing a tiny window box.
World Animal Protection
Our vision is a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended. Together we can move the world for animals.

The Scottish SPCA is Scotlands animal welfare charity.
We rescue animals in danger, find pets new homes, investigate abuse and prevent cruelty through our free Prevention through Education programme for Scottish schools.
Founded in 1839, the Scottish SPCA has been helping animals in Scotland for over 175 years.
We are the only animal charity in the UK recognised as a reporting agency to the Crown Office. This means our inspectors can enforce the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006.

Together For Animals
Together for Animals (TFA) exists to help five animal charities do the fantastic work that they do. Each donation theyreceive is distributed equally to all five member charities, making it a unique way of supporting a range of charities helping thousands of animals in desperate need of help in both the UK and across the world.
The five member charities are the Animal Health Trust, Blue Cross, The Mayhew Animal Home, SPANA and World Horse Welfare and here are some of the things they do:
The Ulster Society Prevention Cruelty to Animals (USPCA) is the second oldest Animal Welfare Charity in the world. Founded in 1836 as the Belfast SPCA it's first priority was to challenge the abuse of working horses, a daily occurrence on the Victorian city streets. The eventual name change from Belfast to Ulster SPCA acknowledged the scale, scope and success of the Charity's expanded operations across the province.
The purpose of our founders to 'Prevent Cruelty and Relieve Suffering' remains as the driving force for our Charitable activities. The USPCA differs from many other animal welfare groups who focus on the needs of a single species with our unique commitment to protect ALL our animals.
Whilst there are heartless individuals willing to inflict unnecessary suffering on animals the need for a USPCA will remain. This Society will ensure its resources are effectively used to prevent animal cruelty and relieve suffering. For over 175 years we have fulfilled our commitment by adapting to the times. The USPCA will continue to protect ALL animals by utilising and adapting advances in technology to help tackle an ever present problem.

With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it's dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. We also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as our campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.
