Rosie’s Trust helps maintain and support the bond between owners and their companion pets when their relationship is threatened by the impact of the owner’s terminal illness, advancing age or acute cancer treatment. Their volunteer network across Northern Ireland supports people to keep their pets, maintaining the important emotional bond and helping reduce social isolation.
