A community scheme run by Leicester Animal Aid is supporting elderly, disabled and immobile pet owners to care for their animal companions at home.
The benefits of keeping owner and pet together for as long as possible can’t be overstated. For one thing, it ensures that much-loved animals do not have to be taken into rescue unnecessarily. It also means that vulnerable members of the community can remain living with their best friend for as long as possible. This surely has a positive impact on mental wellbeing, particularly for those who live alone.
This is one of several initiatives at Leicester Animal Aid that have been supported by Petplan Charitable Trust. We have provided a number of grants to the rescue and rehoming centre since 2015.
