Animal Charity Work 

For a long time we have had close links with a number of animal charities and more recently are becoming more and more involved with them.  We support and do a lot of work with the PDSA, Cats Protection and the RSPCA.


The Peoples Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) is the UK''s leading veterinary charity, caring for more than 350,000 pet patients belonging to people in need. They provide free veterinary treatment to sick and injured animals and promote responsible pet ownership.  For people living in CW12 postcodes there is no local PDSA clinic or eligiblity for free PDSA treatment at their clinics so we offer a Petaid scheme run by the PDSA through Charter Vets at our Congleton branch.  To be eligible for the care of one pet per household an owner must receive council tax benefit and/or housing benefit.  It is important to register your healthy pet as treatment can only be provided once registration has been approved.  For more information please view the PDSA website

Cats Protection

Cats Protection is the UK''s leading feline welfare charity whose vision is to ensure that every cat is given the chance of a life where it will be treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.  Cats Protection has simple and clear objectives to help cats:

  • Homing - rescuing, rehabilitating and finding good homes for cats and kittens in need
  • Neutering - supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats
  • Information - improving people’s understanding of cats and the care of cats and kittens 

Formed in 1927, Cats Protection is the UK''s leading feline welfare charity. CP now rehome and reunite some 60,000 cats and kittens every year, through a network of over 250 voluntary-run branches and 29 adoption centres.

CP also provides an wide range of cat care information via CP publications, the website and the National Helpline 08702 099099; they promote the benefits of neutering for a happier pet and distribute education packs to over 60%  of the schools in the UK.

Charter Vets work closely with Cats Protection and, in association with the Charity, provide a complete health service for cats and kittens adopted from Cats Protection Stoke & Newcastle. This includes full vet checks, FIV/FeLV testing, deflea and worming treatments, full vaccination, microchipping and financial assistance for neutering where required.

Please explore the local Cats Protection website for Stoke & Newcastle to discover more about our local Cats Protection''s branch, their work and services.




The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of animals.

The RSPCA intends to achieve its mission by:

  • effecting strong branch, regional, national and international organisations dedicated to providing a public service, delivering effective relief of animal suffering and enforcing the law
  • working tirelessly to reduce the harmful impact of human activities on animals through education, campaigning and the application of ethics, science and law
  • striving for the highest levels of efficiency, effectiveness and integrity
  • urging that, save where the public benefit requires, humankind should not intentionally cause suffering to any animal when it is not for its own benefit, or cause suffering by neglect. This applies whatever the animal, or the situation in which it finds itself.

At Charter Vets we are pleased to be closely affiliated with RSPCA in that we perform the majority of veterinary care for both cruelty cases and poorly stray animals locally on their behalf.
