An Invigorating Business

Our founders’ vision of a ‘successful Society powered by its members, its people and its principles’ defines how we operate today. The Society’s values of Service, Quality, Value, Tradition and Trust have shaped our business; delivering strong relationships with members, customers and suppliers leading to exceptional trust in our business behaviour.

A Strong Society

A Board of Trustees, elected from eight geographical regions throughout Scotland, oversees the activities of the Society, with the Chief Executive and his team heading up the day-to-day running of the business. Holding a seat on the board of such an esteemed organisation carries with it responsibilities; however, it is considered a great honour, enriching the lives of those involved.

A Respected Employer

We focus on employing people of ability and integrity who are committed to working together for the benefit of the Society and our members.

We, in turn, commit to providing a stimulating, rewarding and enjoyable place to work within a culture that values experience and welcomes innovation.


A Good Neighbour
The Society values its role in the local community and works hand in glove with many local organisations to make a positive difference to the people living and working nearby.

From donations to local groups, to involving our neighbours in the development of RHASS – we are committed to taking an active part in our community.

A Sustainable Business
Understanding the importance of protecting our environment, the Society has made great progress in reducing our consumption of the world’s precious resources. We continue our drive to cut carbon emissions in line with Government targets.

A Charitable Organisation
As part of our charitable status, the Society donates substantial funds each year in support of education. In recent years significant funding has been awarded to The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine, The Royal Highland Education Trust and The Nuffield Trust.
