Loneliness and Animal Charity
Would you like a pet companion but are worried about the cost?
Our animal charity tackles loneliness and animal rehoming by supporting the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion.
Give a Dog a Bone…and an animal a home
We are a young, unique and award-winning animal 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.
We have helped hundreds of animals to find a brighter future.
Please feel free to contact us with ideas or feedback or if you know someone we can help.

Companionship in the Community
Our Community Spaces in Glasgow, Troon and Alloa offer social and canine companionship to retired people in, and around, the community.
Support our unique animal charity
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.

Financial Support to Afford a Rescue Pet
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.
Our Companionship in the Community project provides three Community Spaces in Scotland offering free activities for the over 60s, and where anyone (of any age) from the community is welcome to pop in for a cuppa, a chat, and to see our companionship dogs.
“My life is so much better since I got my best friend Rufus – he is such a character! I can now go walks which keeps me fit and active and feeling better in myself. I love seeing him run around and enjoying life. Above all, he is great company as I live on my own. We are each other’s comfort blanket and I feel safe knowing he is around. I can’t imagine life without my dog – he is everything I could wish for.”
