Volunteers undertake a multitude of pet related tasks; exercising, bathing, cleaning out cages, taking the pet to the vet, fostering while the owner is in hospital or care - basically anything that will keep the pet and owner together for longer, thus extending the lives, happiness and well-being of both owners and pets.
On the sad occasion that an owner dies, the Cinnamon trust will then rehome the pet, where possible matching up with a new owner who's companion pet has died - allowing an animal loving person who is approaching the end of their life (and therefore cannot commit to a new pet) to still have an animal companion to ease their days. They also have a centre where some pets can go to live out the rest of their lives in peace and comfort.
Isn't that a fabulous cause? I was so blown away by this charity that I immediately decided to donate 20% of the list price of all future pet portraits to The Cinnamon trust. And in the Autumn I intend to donate my time too.
