Give a Dog a Bone…and an animal a home
We are a young, unique and award-winning charity, supporting the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion.
We aim to tackle loneliness for the individual and homelessness for the animal, by removing financial barriers to an over 60s person adopting a rescue animal.
To date, we have helped over 400 animals to find a brighter future.
Please feel free to contact us with ideas or feedback or if you know someone we can help.

Ways you can help
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.
Please support our charity to continue our vital work, it’s simple!
You can fundraise or donate, securely, through our new Just Giving page or via PayPal.
We are a registered charity with two main projects:
I would just like to say how much you help me to feed my hounds. If it wasn’t for your very kind help, I would not be able to keep them all! You’re an angel and my hero!! Your help has saved my life – the hounds give me a reason to get up and go out. I’ve met so many people to talk to while walking them all. Once again thank you.
Without Give a Dog a Bone, I would not have been able to find the amazing new family for my little biscon felix, who we had to rehome due to family illness. This charity are also looking into supporting my parents financially with their senior dog and trying to arrange a volunteer dog walker for them!! You are truly an amazing and selfless charity.
