I did the same moonbird an it worked out cheaper to take them to local vets. I have always supported the P.D.S.A and have been very glad of the help when i'v needed it but it has gone a bit off track with the contribution at the reception and then another one if you need meds. Now all this with "if they class your dog as pedigree" even when you know its not but it resembles one. I think they may have changed that( you can only register one if its deemed pedigree but you could have more registered if not) I can understand they need the money but at the end of the day it is the poor animals that suffer. I have always given as much as i can but i have seen people argue the point that its a charity so they don't have to pay anything.
