The Cinnamon Trust; Worth it's weight in gold.
Today we are celebrating and spreading the word of the truly fantastic (and often little heard of) work The Cinnamon Trust does.
For those who are not familiar with them, let us explain: The Cinnamon Trust effectively prevents thousands of doting owners and beloved pets being separated every year. A total of 15,000 dedicated volunteers effectively 'hold hands' with owners whom are perhaps struggling to do the basic day to day things that are essential for the animals wellbeing and good health.
Not only do they come to the persons home and provide daily walks for dogs and love, care and dedication for any pet regardless of species, but they also provide the promise that if the owner should pass on and the pet is bereaved, they will take on a lifetime of full-time care of the animal, giving owners one less thing to worry about at a time which is no doubt very stressful.
Should the owner reach a point when they require residential care, the Cinnamon Trust will do all they can to ensure pet and owner are not separated, with a list of thousands of 'pet friendly care homes' owner and pet can make the transition with minimal stress and continued companionship.
Every year The Cinnamon Trust reaches out and helps 14,000 people and over 16,000 pets, this by anyone's standards is a lot! Demand is increasing all the time. One must remember all this is free!
They rely entirely on donations and volunteers to make all this fantastic work even remotely possible. We urge you to have a look at http://www.cinnamon.org.uk/, if only to reinforce the truly astonishing work they do. If you feel inclined to do more than look then simply click on the 'vacancies' link, they always need people like you!
