On Sunday 22 March 2020, the Animal Health Trust (AHT) announced that following a period of dire financial constraints, and with the economic implications of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK the charity was facing imminent closure.

The Trustees and Executive Committee are continuing to seek out emergency funding and a final decision regarding the long-term future of the Trust will now be made towards the end of April 2020.

Following recent guidance from the UK Government on tackling the Covid-19 pandemic and in order to make use of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, the AHT has closed its offices until further notice.

No further comment will be made at this time.
