PetSavers launches new website

BSAVA's charity introduces new website at Congress

This year's BSAVA Congress sees the launch of a new website for PetSavers, the charity of the BSAVA.

PetSavers, exhibiting in the balcony at the NIA in Birmingham as part of 2012's record-breaking World Congress, has made the change in the hope that it will inspire pet owners and members of the profession to support its important work.

When PetSavers decided they needed a fresh approach to fundraising, they re-invented their image and worked closely with the BSAVA team to re-invent their charity's identity.

Phillip Lhermette, PetSavers' chairman, explained: "PetSavers has re-launched with a new logo and a new enthusiasm to raise its profile
both within the profession and beyond. The new logo is more modern but retains elements of the old identity so it should be recognisable to our supporters.Our new website supports this new image and is aimed at the general public. It is much more informative and full of interesting and useful information that really gives our charity the fresh approach that it needs."

The new website can be found here.

For more information about PetSavers, find them on the balcony of the NIA.

Since the first group of students were admitted in October 1949, the school has seen more than 5,000 veterinary students graduate.

Professor Jeremy Tavare, pro vice-chancellor and executive dean for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, said: "I'm delighted to be celebrating Bristol Veterinary School's 75 years.

"Its excellence in teaching and research has resulted in greater understanding and some real-world changes benefiting the health and welfare of both animals and humans, which is testament to the school's remarkable staff, students and graduates."

RCVS HQ to temporarily relocate

The headquarters of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is to move temporarily, ahead of its permanent relocation later in the year.

From Monday, 26 February 2024, RCVS' temporary headquarters will be at 2 Waterhouse Square, Holborn, London. This is within walking distance of its current rented offices at The Cursitor, Chancery Lane.

RCVS have been based at The Cursitor since February 2022, following the sale of its Westminster premises the previous March.

However, unforeseen circumstances relating to workspace rental company WeWork filing for bankruptcy means The Cursitor will no longer operate as a WeWork space. The new temporary location is still owned by WeWork.

RCVS anticipates that it will move into its permanent location at Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell, later on in the year.
