Sheffield PDSA Pet Opening Day

Sheffield PDSA Pet Hospital are hosting a community open day on May 26 to help raise awareness.

The day will include guided tours of the hospital, dog shows, a pet stall, a bouncy castle and more activities for all the family.

Rob Haselgrove, senior vet at Sheffield PDSA said: “We’re holding this open day as it will give people the chance to learn more about the charity, which has been saving the lives of pets every single day for 100 years.”

The hospital aims to raise at least £500 and costs on average 1.3 million to run, whilst not receiving any government funding.

The hospital is comprised of both volunteers and trained vets. It specialises in sick and injured dogs whose owners cannot afford vet care.

The PDSA was founded in 1917 by animal welfare pioneer Maria Dickin and there are 48 PDSA hospitals nationwide.

The vets tend to 200 pets a day and operate on at least 9,000 pets. These include major operations, day to day vaccines and long term continuing treatment.
The open day will run from 10am to 2pm on 14 Newhall Road.
