Referral Agencies

A Helping Paw works on a referral basis and our team has collaborated with agencies throughout Cumbria to ensure that we can increase our efforts in helping pet owners in need.

If you are a pet owner fleeing domestic abuse and/or are homeless, see below a list of referral agencies who can help you in your next steps to seeking refuge.

Note: If you do not see your referrer below, do not worry, they can still refer you onto the scheme. 

A Helping Paw referral agency list includes (but is not limited to):

  • NHS Health workers
  • Social workers
  • Carlisle City Council
  • Allerdale County Council
  • Copeland county council
  • Eden housing
  • Riverside housing
  • Any other housing agency
