Our research is pioneering and makes a difference, but it needs your support.

Disease and injury are the biggest threats to our pets, and here at the Animal Health Trust, we’re constantly striving to find ways to change this. We receive no government funding, so we depend on the support of people like you who understand the value animals bring to our lives. We are striving for a world in which no dog, cat or horse suffers from disease and injury and you are an important part of this.

Research is the solution to this, and regular donations enable us to commit to long-term programmes. This results in better diagnostic tests and prevention methods for animals. We recognise people who make generous donations to support our work in the following ways:

By donating as little as £3 a month, you can make a huge difference to our work.

Knowing that your donation will come every month, or year, helps us to plan our vital research programmes which, in turn, benefit thousands more animals.

Support in the United States of America

The AHT collaborates with US-based organisations and conducts work of global importance. Join us in raising funds to help tackle complex diseases, such as cancer and infectious diseases like equine Strangles, which cause great suffering to animals in the US, as well as around the world.

AHT US delegates visited the AHT in Newmarket as part of a programme of events which included a Gala Dinner at Spencer House with HRH The Princess Royal.

We are incredibly privileged to have a registered not-for-profit in the US which provides a tax effective vehicle for US citizens to donate and support the AHT in the UK. Our research work is of global importance. We are tackling diseases, such as cancer, epilepsy and Strangles, which have no geographical boundaries. These diseases are common across the world, so animals in the US benefit from, and are in as much need of, our help as those in the UK.

The AHT is 501c(3) certified and have an active US fundraising and events branch. Our relationship with AHT US enables us to offer supporters in the US exclusive access to networking and social events, often hosed by our President, HRH The Princess Royal, at a number of Royal Palaces or stately homes.
