A Gillingham resident asked for dog walking support for their 12-year-old Beagle from the Cinnamon Trust. Now the charity is looking for volunteers.
The national charity assists the elderly and terminally ill and their pets to keep them together for as long as possible with the help of a national network of volunteers who assist when day-to-day care poses a problem.
The aim is to relieve owners of worry about the welfare of their pets during and after their own lifetime, making it unique among charities.
“All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them. Teams take it in turn to visit housebound owners to take the dog for a walk, volunteers foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, even clean out the budgie’s cage or cats litter trays,” said Sally Collins, Appeal Administrator.
