The help we give is not limited to dog and cat owners. We also work closely with horse owners facing challenges in caring for their animal or coping with the loss of a much-loved horse.
Sometimes, through our work, we identify health and social needs that are currently not being met. Through our relationships with affiliate organisations in human health and animal welfare, we try to ensure that these additional needs are met.
We raise awareness of the benefits of the human-animal bond and the impact of loss and bereavement, whether human or pet. We provide advice and support pre-, during and post-bereavement in partnership with other support services as appropriate.
We also encourage advance planning for the care of animals to give owners peace of mind so that the welfare of their pet will be maintained, should anything happen to them.
