About Us


We are a small Cornish based charity focused on improving the lives of sick, abandoned or unwanted pets.  At the Cornwall Animal Hospital we make sure that all animals can get the veterinary treatment they need when their owners cannot afford to pay private fees in their entirety.

Many of our clients are on means-tested benefits or state retirement pension, and we also help members of the community on a low income at our discretion.  Our Animal Hospital is located in Treleigh, Redruth, surviving on donations and money from our loyal client base.
