About Us

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.
