The Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity for the terminally ill and people in their later years and their much loved, much needed companion animals.
What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older affects our ability to look after our four legged companions? Elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets feeling that their only option is to rehome them, this is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together. We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.
We always need new volunteers even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you. For example, we urgently need dog walking volunteers in Gateshead for a lovely 6 year old Staffy/Labrador cross who would love to go for a good walk.
