Sponsorship

We support the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion. If money is a genuine barrier, we can pay the rehoming fee for a RESCUE animal and continue to support, each month, with the cost of pet food.

Update: All community spaces are temporarily closed at the moment due to COVID-19.

We are a registered charity with two main projects:

We support the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion – tackling loneliness for the individual and homelessness for the animal. This project is UK wide.

We have a Community Space project, where we offer free activities for the over 60s and drop in times for the whole community (of any age) to pop in for a cuppa and a chat and stroke the dogs. It’s called Companionship in the Community and is currently located in Glasgow, Troon and Alloa (Scotland).
