Our Special Friends

Promoting, preserving and providing the power of animal companionship

Our Special Friends helps people continue to benefit from animal companionship by providing physical and emotional support during illness, bereavement or other crises. Our current geographical focus is Suffolk but we do have cases in adjacent areas and are keen to expand as funding allows.

Give Help

Many thanks to everyone who has already helped us in a variety of ways, donating their time, expertise or money. Our work is not possible without your vital and valued support. 


In addition to volunteers, we always need funds to help us cover emergency veterinary care, volunteer expenses and other essential running costs.

Fundraising ideas


We simply can’t do our work without the help of our wonderful volunteers. Some give their time on a regular weekly basis while others help out when they can.
