Janet’s pooch, Rilla, was cared for by National Lottery-funded Rosie’s Trust while she recovered. They wasted no time to rescue a Chihuahua as sweet as life.

When Janet’s beloved chihuahua, Rilla, became ill and had to be rushed to the vet, Rosie’s Trust – a brilliant charity which helps sick people and their pets – saved the day.

National Lottery-funded Rosie’s Trust supports dog owners like Janet who might be struggling to take care of their pets due to illness, disability or cancer treatment – but want to stay together.

So when Janet was taken ill after her pet pooch got poorly, the charity stepped in. Janet, 70, explains: “Rilla was in intensive care for five days. The trauma of it had an effect on my heart and I took a turn for the worse. They looked after her until I was well again.”

The trust now sends volunteers to walk Rilla through the week, so the little dog gets exercise.

“I have osteoarthritis in my knees and shoulder so I’m not able to walk Rilla,” explains Janet.

By playing The National Lottery you’re helping to raise £30million* every week for good causes like Rosie’s Trust.

Volunteers also look out for the elderly owners. “When I pop by to take Rilla out, it gives Janet a bit of social interaction,” says Susan. “I think she’s been lonely but the volunteers help alleviate that – they even phoned during lockdown to check on her and have a chat.”

Janet agrees: “Rosie’s Trust is brilliant. Rilla wouldn’t get out for walks without them and they’ve given me peace of mind she’ll be looked after if anything happened.”
