The Cinnamon Trust

It is widely acknowledged that pets can positively benefit the well-being of elderly owners. For many elderly people living on their own, their pets are their reason for living.

They are constant companions - on hand 24 hours a day, every day, comforting, loving and protecting their owners - not only from outside threats, but also offering the more subtle form of protection from loneliness and despair.

Via a national network of 15,000 volunteers, the Cinnamon Trust offers the following services all over the UK to elderly and terminally ill pet owners.

  • Dog Walking

  • Care – Any day to day pet care the owner can’t manage.

  • Short Term Fostering – for pets whose owners face a spell in hospital.

  • Long Term Fostering – for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. (by prior arrangement )

  • The Pet Friendly Care Homes Register – the Trust’s guide to care homes and sheltered housing that will welcome residents and their pets.
