The Cinnamon Trust
We are 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.
When staying at home is no longer an option, our Pet Friendly Care Homes Register lists residential/nursing homes happy to accept residents with pets. And when a pet is bereaved we take on full time lifetime care.
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.
What is the Cinnamon Trust?
Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity which seeks to relieve the anxieties, problems, and sometimes injustices, faced by elderly and terminally ill people and their pets, thereby saving a great deal of human sadness and animal suffering.
What does the Cinnamon Trust do?
The Trust's primary objective is to respect and preserve the treasured relationship between owners and their pets. To this end, it works in partnership with owners to overcome any difficulties that might arise.
A national fostering service is provided for pets whose owners face a spell in hospital - volunteers take pets into their own homes and supply love and care in abundance until owner and pet can be reunited.
The Cinnamon Trust also provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. Arrangements are made between owners and the Trust well in advance, so owners do have peace of mind in the knowledge that their beloved companion will have a safe and happy future. Emergency cards are available on request.
General Enquiries Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm, Emergency Calls available 24hrs
