The RSPCA is raising money to help keep pets in loving homes through providing vital veterinary vouchers.

Project by Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals

You can help struggling pet owners afford the vital veterinary treatment and care necessary to give their pet a good life. Our veterinary assistance vouchers, which are distributed by our frontline officers, will keep pets and their loving owners together at a time when many are struggling to afford to care for their pet. As the financial strain on people continues to grow, your kindness is needed more than ever.


Kate and Lady

Kate sadly lost her husband in 2019. The family has found it hard to recover since and life has been difficult due to struggling with finances. The RSPCA provided Kate with welfare vouchers for flea and worming treatments for her cats and dog, Lady.

“Our animals are our lives. They have helped the children and me through some very difficult times. They made us smile and helped us grieve.  The thought of ever giving them up would be unbearable.”


The RSPCA is the only charity to investigate complaints of animal cruelty and neglect in England and Wales. Our officers use their specialist skills and knowledge to resolve the majority of issues by providing advice and support to people who otherwise would not be able to access veterinary treatment for their pets. The IVAV scheme allows these RSPCA frontline staff to issue vouchers to pet owners in need to cover the cost of basic veterinary treatments for their pets. Vouchers issued are usually redeemable up to the value of £100, but this can be raised to cover up to £250 worth of treatment in specific circumstances. Common uses for the vouchers include flea treatments to heal skin conditions, vet visits to check on suspicious lumps and bumps, neutering, grooming, and general health checks to deal with issues such as a matted coat and overgrown claws.

The RSPCA’s frontline officers are severely stretched and IVAV offers officers a tangible and effective solution to improve an animal’s wellbeing, without having to choose between providing advice only, or removing an animal from a caring home due to lack of finances.
