A Taste of Cinnamon

Mickey CinnamonOn 21st April, we were joined by Mickey Downing from Hayle-based the Cinnamon Trust, the only specialist national charity for people in their last years and their much loved, much needed companion animals.

Each year, the Cinnamon Trust helps over 30,000 people and 40,000 animals. A network of 15,000 volunteers “hold hands” with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets, keeping them together – for example, by walking a dog every day for a housebound owner, or by fostering pets when owners need hospital care.

When staying at home is no longer an option, the Trust helps locate pet-friendly  care homes and retirement housing happy to accept residents with pets, and can even give a home to a pet whose owner has deceased in one of their own residential (for animals) homes, taking on the life time care of a bereaved pet.

Mickey spoke with passion of her own experiences in taking on four very different but equally adorable dog and we got a clear understanding of who rules the roost in her house!
