The Society for Animals in Distress (SAID) was formed in 1958 by the late Didi Rutherford who had an unrivaled passion for the wellbeing of animals. We provide professional veterinary care that is built on a foundation of focused animal care education within marginalized and disadvantaged local communities. Our professional veterinary care is supported by experienced surgical and medical veterinarians and para-veterinarians who achieve excellence in their respective disciplines.
