Our pets are our best friends. Having a pet provides many benefits including reducing anxiety, social opportunities, physical activity and improving self-confidence. However, with the rising cost of living, and the challenges that come with caring for a loved one, we understand it can be difficult to provide for your pet. Paw2Paw is a new initiative to support carers in West Dunbartonshire experiencing financial hardship to look after their pet.


Support for carers includes:

  • Financial support towards looking after your pet
  • A dedicated information hub on looking after your pet, including information on services provided by local animal charities – visit the PAW2PAW Help Page
  • Development of Valued Carer to include local, independent pet services – Visit the VALUED CARER DIRECTORY
  • Events and social opportunities

If you are a carer with a beloved dog or cat, and are in need of support, contact Jenni on 07535469592 or email

Valued Carer businesses can be easily identified via our directory or by the “We Value Carers” window sticker!

For a full list of supporting businesses, please visit our Valued Carer Directory.
