VetFinders is a recruitment business with a social mission at its heart. We are more than a recruitment business whose only aim is to make a profit, this isn’t us! We aim to make a profit of course we do but donate a minimum 25% of all our profits back to animal/children’s charities. Some agencies might give to charity as a token gesture, but we give a minimum of 25% away making it a core element of our business. We will be totally transparent on this and be audited annually to prove this isn’t some cheap sales pitch!

The best part of this is we aren’t going to just give money to charity and forgot about it we are going to work closely with these charities and see where the money goes. We will fund certain projects of theirs, work on their front line and make sure all donations are used for the care of animals/children.
