In 2021 we launched our Healing Hearts Appeal to buy life-saving equipment for our new in-house veterinary clinic.

The Veterinary Clinic
at Birmingham Dogs Home

Our charity accepts every dog that needs us, no matter their condition. We are trusted by nine local authorities to receive strays which means that more than half of the dogs that come into our care are malnourished or have suffered some form of neglect or abuse including multiple injuries or untreated medical conditions.

This means that our veterinary costs have been increasing year on year which has led us to make one of the most important decisions in our charity’s history and build our own veterinary clinic. By running our own veterinary clinic we are able to significantly reduce the costs of essential medical care and better manage both emergency cases and the ongoing physical health of dogs on their road to recovery.

In 2021 we launched our Healing Hearts Appeal to raise the funds we needed to equip an in-house veterinary clinic at our rescue centre near Solihull.

In March 2022 we were delighted to officially open our new clinic and we are very proud of our new veterinary team who are already providing both life-saving and daily medical care for the many dogs we look after, every day of the year.

We would like to say a special thank you to everyone who fundraised and donated to help us to reach our appeal target. Every run, every bake sale, every donation, every gift big and small, we appreciate every single thing you have done to help us to provide the very best standards of medical care to the Midlands neediest dogs – now and in the future.

Our heartfelt thanks to every animal lover who kindly supported our Healing Hearts Appeal.

We would also like to thank some very special organisations who have made very generous donations to help us to create our clinic, to whom we are indebted. Thank you for sharing our passion and helping us to achieve our vision. Your generosity will live on to help dogs for generations to come.

Why do we need a veterinary centre?

Our charity accepts every dog that needs us, no matter their condition. We are trusted by nine local authorities to receive strays which means that more than half of the dogs are malnourished or have suffered some form of neglect or abuse including multiple injuries or untreated medical conditions.

This means that our veterinary costs have been increasing year on year which has led us to make one of the most important decisions in our charity’s history and build our own veterinary clinic.

Why we need your supawt

We care for over 2,000 dogs and we were spending over £230,000 on essential medical care every year. This level of veterinary costs was not sustainable for our charity. We do not receive any government funding and are entirely reliant on the generosity of our supporters and the local community to be here to care for the dogs that need us.

By running our own veterinary clinic we are able to significantly reduce the costs of essential medical care and better manage both emergency cases and the ongoing physical health of dogs on their road to recovery.
