A national charity is appealing for volunteers to help the elderly or housebound with walking their dog.
The Cinnamon Trust needs people to help those over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care.
Volunteers can walk the dog for a housebound owner, foster pets when owners need hospital care, fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.
The Cinnamon Trust has a national network of dedicated volunteers to step in to offer support enabling owners and their pets to stay together.
If anyone can help please call during office hours 01736 758707 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
