The Animal Trust – Because Every Pet Deserves a Vet

Thank you for your interest in the Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) Job with the Animal Trust in Bolton. We are on a mission to provide affordable veterinary care for people’s pets, especially those who are finding it hard to manage financially. Even before the current cost of living crisis, we know that there are many pet owners who are in distress because they can see their beloved friend needs help and they simply can’t afford the fees.

Owen Monie, our founding Vet, established the Animal Trust, because he passionately believes that no animal should suffer due to their owner’s financial hardship, which is why there are no consultation fees charged at any of our vet practices. There are no eligibility criteria, because we want to encourage people to bring their pets to us. Owners will only pay for any treatment at realistic prices, which are completely transparent and published on our website.

The Animal Trust is the only Community Interest Veterinary Group in the U.K who prioritise their staff, patients and owners’ welfare, rather than profit. Any profits are fed directly back into the Trust to provide career development and maintain the highest standard of care at the lowest possible price for our pet owners. We invest in our surgeries across our network and have access to expertise including in-house CT scanner, advanced orthopaedics and hip replacement specialists

Our Busy Bolton Hospital

Our 24hr ECC Hospital is a bustling, buzzing hub that treats both its own cases, and those from nearby Animal Trust clinics, too. Here, you’ll have access to brilliant facilities, limitless learning opportunities, and receive a heck lot of support from a spirited and supportive team.

Our Bolton team is a close-knit, multi-talented bunch, with loads of specialisations that enable us to work on difficult and complex cases from start to finish. When poorly pets come into our hospital, everyone bands together to care for them. That includes medical stabilisation from our emergency inpatient team, assessment from our imaging team (with our in-house CT scanner), and complex orthopaedic surgery from our team of surgeons.
