Supporting RCVS Knowledge can make a big difference to animal health, treatment and welfare through veterinary care, knowledge and understanding; both in the UK and around the world.

Trust grant holder in the Gambia



Since 2005 we have invested over £3 million into research benefiting animal health and welfare in cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, infertility, liver disease, Wilson’s disease, motor neuron disease, avian influenza, heart disease, equine colic, livestock health, tuberculosis, neurosurgery and much more. 

We have also funded a growing number of important grassroots animal welfare initiatives in the UK and developing countries including Mali, Ethiopia, Jordan and India. This has had a direct positive impact on the welfare of animals and their owners in some of the world’s poorest communities.


Knowledge and understanding

Our Library serves veterinarians all over the world supplying up to the minute information on all areas of animal health.

Our Historical Collection is priceless and unique. One of three major veterinary collections in the UK, it contains copies of all the major authors’ works in the veterinary sphere dating from 1514.


Why we need your support

RCVS Knowledge is a registered charity and has limited funds for projects.  RCVS Knowledge  is operating in an increasingly commercial environment and receives no government or statutory funding income.

We rely on generous donations and bequests to make a difference to animal health, treatment and welfare.  As we look to the future, this support is needed more than ever and there are a number of different ways to get involved.
