The Celia Hammond Animal Trust is a registered Charity whose objectives are registered with the Charity Commission. One of the Trusts main aims and objectives is “To humanely reduce the population of dogs and cats, both pedigree and mongrel in the U.K by neutering as opposed to the current situation where hundreds of thousands of healthy but unwanted or stray animals are being destroyed simply because there are not enough homes to go around”
The Trust promotes responsible pet ownership and provides a low cost neutering and vaccination service for pets belonging to owners who cannot afford private veterinary treatment for their pets. In line with the Trust’s charitable aims and objectives we do not provide a vaccination service for animals whose owners intend to allow them to breed and add to the huge pet over population problem in the U.K.
If an owner wishes to breed from their pet that is entirely their right but they will not qualify for the subsidised vaccination service provided by the Celia Hammond Animal Trust and in these circumstances they should use a private veterinary clinic.
Pet owners who accept the objectives of our Charity are welcomed at our veterinary clinics and will do all we can to assist them with the care of their pets.

The Celia Hammond Animal Trust is a registered Charity whose objectives are registered with the Charity Commission. One of the Trusts main aims and objectives is “To humanely reduce the population of dogs and cats, both pedigree and mongrel in the U.K by neutering as opposed to the current situation where hundreds of thousands of healthy but unwanted or stray animals are being destroyed simply because there are not enough homes to go around”Alongside our veterinary clinics we run a cat rescue and homing centre and always have a large number of cats in need of kind new homes.Please visit our website for more information about the work of the Celia Hammond Animal Trust, our veterinary services and cat rescue centres www.celiahammond.org
In the 1960’s Celia Hammond was a supermodel. During her career she did model fur but then became concerned about animal welfare and cruelty.
She decided to set up the Celia Hammond Trust initially because of her concerns over the feral cat population. She became involved in rescuing, neutering and rehoming stray and unwanted animals. She learned how to trap feral cats and started to trap, neuter and return to suitable sites many thousands of feral cats.
She then decided to open clinics - and I believe this one in Lewisham was the first - in order to provide a neutering and vaccination service for pet owners who could not afford the exorbitant prices some vets charge. Without her clinic many owners would not be able to afford to have their pet neutered which would result in many many more unwanted animals.
Recently she was involved in rescuing 186 cats from the olympic site in London. She personally spent hours then trying to catch all the cats. One in particular eluded her but with the deadline reached she managed to catch him. They were all neutered and most of them have been found new homes.
I think she is a brilliant woman - a real animal lover and doing so much good.
