If your loved one had a pet and you or other family member or friend are unable to adopt it, The Cinnamon Trust is a charity that may be able to help. The Cinnamon Trust provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. If arrangements can be made between owners (or next of kin) and the Trust whilst your loved one is alive so much the better as then the owner will have peace of mind in the knowledge that their beloved companion will have a safe and happy future. Emergency cards are available on request.

TOP TIP

If at all possible, it is good to encourage elderly relatives with pets to make arrangements for their pet before they die so as not to worry about the future.  The Cinammon Trust can help with temporary care if your loved one is going into hospital, help you find a home that will accept pets, or help you make arrangement after your loved one dies.
