Guide Dogs

Formally called The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, Guide Dogs provides mobility for people who are blind and partially sighted.

We treat many working guide dogs and have many clients who are visually impaired and rely on their 4 legged friend.

We also treat the dogs that grow and train in the Birmingham Guide Dog training centre.

They are great dogs to deal with.


The RSPCA is the leading UK animal welfare charity. They specialise in rescue, animal welfare and preventing animal cruelty.

We work with the RSPCA on many cases of cruelty and neglect, often appearing in court as expert witnesses. It’s upsetting work but seeing neglected animals return to health is very rewarding.
