Charity information

Animal Care Trust

The Animal Care Trust (ACT) is the Royal Veterinary College’s (RVC) registered charity. It raises funds to support the College’s wide range of activities aimed at improving animal health and care.

Founded 1980

  • Mission statement

    The Animal Care Trust raises funds to support the work of The Royal Veterinary College. We buy new equipment, help to build new hospitals and support our staff and students. All donations help towards our work in treating over 24,000 animals each year, investigating new treatments and training our students to become qualified veterinarians, nurses, physiotherapists and scientists of the future.

    Our hospitals run on a non-profit making basis. Clients of our hospitals pay for the veterinary services provided but this income only covers the basic running costs of the hospital. Donations to the Animal Care Trust mean that we can afford more care and equipment that can make all the difference to our patients and students.

  • Aims

    Animal Care Trust aims to:

    • provide assistance to the College’s research teams in their endeavours to pioneer new treatments and cures for the diseases that cause your pets such suffering.
    • purchase vital, up-to-date equipment for the College’s hospitals, fund the building of new hospitals and the enhancement of existing ones.
    • support the College’s commitment to excellence in veterinary education, to ensure we have the best veterinary professionals and scientists of the future.
