People and pets Advocates
Support for pet owners in times of ill health or other crises.
PAPAS - People And Pets Advocates - aim is to alleviate peoples’ worries and fears if ill health or other crises comes between them and the care of their pets by offering an alternative to
re - homing, abandoning, neglecting or destroying a pet during this stressful time.
PAPAS are dedicated to offering free practical help, such as Dog walking and Pet Fostering, emotional and ongoing support to people in need of assistance for themselves and their pets.
There have been many incidents of people who need help, even of some who have refused urgent hospital treatment unless someone can be found to look after their cherished pets, unfortunately, not everyone has a friend or relative who is able to help in these times of need.
PAPAS can offer help.
There is no age limit for their services so this younger dog lover can find help when she needs it.
PAPAS will find someone to be Max’s friend, someone who will take the time to earn his trust, so he can continue enjoying his walks and games. If Max’s owner is ever hospitalised or totally incapacitated a temporary home from home can also be arranged.
If a Pet needs a trip to the vet PAPAS can take them there.
PAPAS are flexible enough to be able to help wherever help is needed.
In order to offer help like this, PAPAS needs volunteers.
Could you help PAPAS help others?
Could you volunteer and provide help with dog-walking, transporting a sick pet to the vet, fostering, respite pet care, grooming or help run the Pet Bereavement Phoneline?
If you can help, please contact Julia on 0300 666 3 999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

MY Personal thoughts-
There is a time when everyone needs to ask other people/strangers for their help. It may be a simple question like “can you pass me ...... please” or “can you tell me the way to ......” other times a more personal assistance is needed and is given freely and without question by family and friends.
Last week my sister was told she had cancer, she starts chemo next week and its a difficult and worrying time ahead of her.
One worry she has is her dogs- she will not be able to walk them once her treatment starts . some people will think that should be her least of her worries, but its a worry for her.
there are people and charities about that can and well help. one small but very willing and helpful charity is
People and Pets Advocate support pet owners by sharing the care of their pets during times of ill health,disablement and personal crises.
from a phone call last night , i understand that there is just one volunteer in the ST area and they live in Stafford. im hoping to help this charity and my sister by promoting this good cause , and wish that more people in the stoke-on-trent are will be able to surport this charity . making people more aware that there is other help too. if they need it in the furture.
if you can spare half an hour once a week then that is gladly accepted .
