How your donation will help

We know pets make wonderful companions, and they can provide purpose and routine in a day which otherwise might be empty.  Our charity tackles loneliness in our ageing years and animal homelessness.


We do this in a number of ways:  

  • We help people over 60 afford the cost of the rehoming fee so they can adopt a rescue pet
  • We help people over 60 to feed and take care of their pet through a monthly financial support scheme
  • We provide Community Spaces where people over 60 can get a free cuppa and spend time with our Companionship Dogs

We also deliver free group activities for older adults so they can learn new skills, be part of a group and make new friends, like chair yoga, creative writing or Spanish lessons.  All in the company of our amazing Companionship Dogs.

“Your help has saved my life” – Charity Friend (age 60+)

About us

Give a Dog a Bone…and an animal a home is 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.
