Petplan Charitable Trust: Who we are
Founded in 1994, the Petplan Charitable Trust (PCCT) has a simple mission to promote the health and welfare of animals in the UK and beyond. This we do by funding advances in veterinary science as well as supporting charities committed to animal welfare. The circumstances of the animals they help vary greatly. Some are at risk, mistreated or abandoned. Others are being trained to enhance the lives of the elderly or sick, such as therapy pets. We have helped over 300 charities. To date, we have awarded 890 grants totalling over £11.5 million.
We are proud to support not only the big organisations but the smaller outfits operating with perhaps just a handful of dedicated volunteers. What we all share is our passion for animals and our commitment to making a difference.
Funding comes from the generosity of pet owners like you, who can opt to give a small donation to the Trust when they take out or renew their policy with Petplan. We also welcome additional donations.
How we’re making a difference
Thanks to the support of generous animal lovers like you, our grants are changing the lives of animals for the better, both now and into the future. Not only do we help animal welfare organisations with their critical work on the ground, we also support advancements in veterinary medicine to improve the treatment of conditions such as arthritis in dogs, hypertension and kidney problems in cats and colic in horses. Here are just a few of the many fantastic projects we’re proud to support.
