Can You Walk Someone's Dog?

We have had an e-mail from Sue at a charity called The Cinnamon Trust, they help elderly people with their companion pets. 

Sue is currently looking for some dog walking help for a lady in Milford on Sea who cannot walk their dog, a lovely 15 year old Cairn terrier.

Can you help? - If so please contact Sue below.

About The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity whose wonderful volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care. 

What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older eventually affects our ability to look after our four legged companions? A large number of elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets, feeling that their only option is to rehome them, this is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together.

We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.

We are always seeking new volunteers so even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you,
