& Share Your Pet

We Donate To Charities

If you are a small charity looking for funding, please contact us using this form

In the time it takes to read this another 3 animals will be in destress and need help. Many of these animals end up in the amazing care of the RSPCA. 

But lets face it, this needs to stop! Pet cruelty has to stop, the frequency of pet rehoming needs to reduce. 1.1 million calls are made a year to help pets. Over 100,000 pets are rescued every year. BEFORE YOU OWN BORROW A PET to see if it’s right for you.

We passionately believe pet sharing on Share Your Pet will help reduce rehoming rates, increase awareness and promote responsibility in pet ownership.

We are happy to help those trying very hard to rescue and support less privileged animals. 

We will choose some charities to list on Share Your Pet as our partner charities.

Every time someone  joins Share Your Pet with a membership fee, the charity chosen by our member will receive £50p

Benefits & Evidence

In line with the advice from www.pethealthcouncil.co.uk.

Pets can play an important role in people’s lives and they are often referred to as ‘one of the family’. As well as providing a constant source of enjoyment, friendship and fun, many pets thrive in a family and household environment. In their recent journals on the topic The Pet Health Council list over two pages of benefits to children, families, single people and the community.

VALUES & ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

Children in dog owning families also have more traditional values, better academic achievement and greater respect for their parents. I often witness positive attitudinal changes in young people following the introduction of animals to their lives. In learning to care for the animal, they are also acquiring foundation skills required for parenting. In addition, passage through the teenage years – a difficult time for many – is facilitated by a relationship with a non- judgemental, ever supportive animal friend in whom one can confide fears and worries

PHYSICAL HEALTH BENEFITS TOO

The animal magic goes beyond the therapeutic and educational to bring significant physical health benefits too. One of the more obvious benefits is that of exercise – dog walking or playing with a cat is a great way for people to burn a few more calories. This is particularly important when lifestyles are becoming increasingly sedentary and obesity is a growing issue, for children and adults. Many families are now acquiring pets to encourage children, especially boys, to spend more time in the “real”, rather than the “virtual” world.

ASSISTING LEARNING DIFFICULTIES
Dogs and other animals have also been found to help children with autism. Sometimes children who are electively mute start to talk to the dog, and gradually learn basic communication skills.
POSITIVE INFLUENCES
Recent European studies have demonstrated that dog ownership exerts a protective influence on the behaviour of young people – reducing their likelihood of becoming involved with gang culture, drugs or crime.

STOP Unwanted Pets

Share Your Pet brings together animal lovers to borrow & share pets. We connect pet owners with trusted local pet nannies who would love to look after their pets.

Pet owners may need help when they at work or on holiday or at any other time. You never know what life throws at you. We make it easy to arrange walks, playtime, overnight stays or holidays.

Our aim is to promote animal welfare, reduce the number of pets rehomed each year and champion responsible knowledgable pet ownership. We help pet owners when they need it.

Pet Nannies get the pet companionship they are searching for. Dogs especially get more exercise, meet other dogs and love more playtime, to allow people without a pet to spend quality time with their favourite pet. Even before deciding to own one themselves.

Pet sharing is great for a family and children to borrow a pet before they take on the responsibility of pet ownership.
Everyone benefits especially our furry babies. Live Love Pet.
