- The Cinnamon Trust
"The only specialist national charity for people in their last years and their much loved, much needed companion animals. A network of 15,000 volunteers "hold hands" with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets. We keep them together - for example, we'll walk a dog every day for a housebound owner, we'll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we'll fetch the cat food, or even clean out the bird cage, etc. When staying at home is no longer an option, our Pet Friendly Care Home Register lists care homes and retirement housing happy to accept residents with pets, and providing previous arrangements have been made with us we will take on life time care of a bereaved pet."
