Our charity work
At Forest Veterinary Centre we are proud to be involved with a great many charitable organisations and are always looking for other ways to help out and aid these institutions which give so much to pets and pet owners alike.
Guide Dogs For The Blind
We have worked very closely with the Redbridge Centre of the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association for over 25 years and have watched generations of these remarkable animals learn the profession.
Acting as veterinary surgeons for the Guide Dogs from pup to full maturity, we make weekly visits to the centre to examine all dogs, providing treatment for any that may require veterinary attention.
They have over 100 kennels – the dogs are at all stages of their lives – and Forest Veterinary Centre endeavours to oversee the healthcare and treatment of all working Guide Dogs in the areas local to our practices.
This is a fantastic charity which looks after the pets of people who have either unfortunately passed away, or who are now living in residential care homes, and can no longer care for their animals. They also provide walkers for dog owners who are too frail to exercise their pets.
Providing financial assistance for any vet’s fees, The Cinnamon Trust seeks to foster animals with families throughout the UK. We’re proud to have several patients in our care that are fostered by people in the local area and are delighted that we can help give these animals a new life.
Another brilliant organisation, Hearing Dogs trains dogs to help deaf people, giving them greater independence, confidence and companionship. We provide free wormers and vaccinations from all of our practices in co-operation with pharmaceutical manufacturers.
