Give a Dog a Bone ... and an animal a home

Give a Dog a Bone is the first of our featured charities this month in honour of National Pet Month.

A newly registered charity – supporting rescue animals to find homes AND providing financial support to the 60+ age group to afford a rescue pet.

Give a Dog a Bone's aim is to tackle the rising number of animals in shelter, and loneliness in old age, by bringing the two groups together.

The charity wants to remove financial barriers to the over 60s having a rescue pet companion – thus providing company for the person, and a home for the animal!

For those who need financial support, Give a Dog a Bone can pay the rehoming fee and/or continue to support with the ongoing monthly cost of pet food!

Give a Dog a Bone also support animal rescue operations to find homes for their animals. This may, or may not, be with the 60+ age group, however, financial support is ONLY available to those over 60.

Since November 2013 Give a Dog a Bone have:

- found homes for 20+ cats and dogs
- supported Seniors each month with the cost of their pet food
- provided foster homes for animals without a permanent home
- arranged volunteer dog walking for older people recovering from operations
- found homes for animals whose older companions were too ill to look after them.

Competition time with H&H and National Pet Month

In honour of National Pet Month, we're giving away a copy of our fab book, My Dog, my Friend, every week for the next five weeks! To be in with a chance of winning, simply email us at with your favourite animal-related charity, and each week we'll pick our favourite to feature on the Hubble & Hattie blog and Facebook page! If we feature your charity, you're a winner! Remember, the theme is pets and the elderly, so we're especially keen to hear about charities which enlist the help of animals to aid the elderly, or those that help older animals. Good luck!
