Who we are

PetSavers is the grant awarding arm of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA). We are dedicated to improving the health of pets by funding research to relieve the distress and pain caused by diseases, so that our companion animals can enjoy longer, fuller and healthier lives. 

About us

"I am a big fan of PetSavers grants because there is very little else available to fund small animal research". Hattie Syme, winner of a 2015 Student Research Project grant into feline vaccination and antibodies, explains why she believes BSAVA PetSavers deserves recognition in the veterinary profession.
