The John Burns Foundation

Our aim is very simple, and that is to make a difference to the lives of people and companion animals across the UK.

Quite often people assume that our focus is entirely on animal based activity, and though we do have programmes based around just that, we are constantly developing exciting new projects and partnerships.
