2021 promises to be one of the most challenging years in our history.

2020 was our 180th year of existence. It ended up being memorable for entirely different reasons than we had planned due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We truly believe we are a charity at the heart of communities across Scotland. Our work to protect animals, support people and their pets and to educate people of all ages puts us there.

Demand for our services remained high in 2020, and we delivered. This year, we expect that demand to rise. The pandemic and the consequences of Brexit will throw up new challenges for the animal welfare sector.

This year we will continue to work towards our five key goals:

  • Advise, rescue and enforce
  • Care for, rehabilitate, rehome and release
  • Educate and prevent
  • Raise funds and awareness
  • Organisational excellence

We’ll achieve these through working closely with our partners, in the animal welfare sector and beyond. In doing so we hope to alleviate the pressure on our vital services.

We’ll continue to speak up for animals. We’ll continue to be there in every community across Scotland helping the people and animals that need us most. We’ll keep building a better world for animals and people because we are Scotland’s Animal Champions.
