Dog walker volunteers needed in Skegby

A charity that helps keep elderly and terminally ill people united with their pets for as long as possible is appealing for volunteers to help in the Skegby area.

The Cinnamon Trust seeks to keep owner and pet together for as long as possible with the help of volunteers, who assist when day to day care poses a problem.

A Skegby resident is currently in need of people to walk their dog for them, but there are currently not enough volunteers.

Volunteers can help in the ways that are most appropriate to them, with teams taking it in turn to visit housebound owners, to take dogs for walks, fostering pets when owners face a spell in hospital, taking pets to the vet, or even cleaning out cages.
