A list of useful links and informative websites

Useful Links

We have endeavoured to compile a list of useful links and information websites.  However we cannot be held responsible for the content of external websites or endorse any of the services listed.

Please select one of the following pages.


Pet Charities

There are many pet charities situated in South East Wales. Here we have listed a few of them. 

Some sanctuaries and charities provide permanent homes for abandoned or stray pets to live out their lives in comfort. Others offer a temporary home or place pets in foster homes whilst awaiting adoption. 

Assistance charities, providing fully trained pets for people with disabilities, often need temporary foster homes where puppies can be brought up correctly, socialised and start their training process to become useful companions to assist their human in everyday tasks. If you feel you have what it takes to give a puppy a good start in life and on the right path then contact them.

Search and Rescue Associations also rely heavily on charitable support and sponsorship to undertake their work. 

There are also various charities which can give financial assistance to pet owners towards the cost of neutering pets. Eligibility criteria is displayed on their websites.

Assistance Charities

Wildlife Charities

At Usk Veterinary Centre we occasionally treat injured wildlife. Our staff know that it is important not to handle wildlife any more than necessary and try to make it tame. There are lots of wildlife charities out there doing a fabulous job of nursing and rehabilitating wildlife. Here are some of them.

If you have a favourite wildlife charity that you don't see featured here then please tell us all about it by emailing and we will add it to our website for the benefit of other visitors.
