Appeal for dog walkers to help elderly

A charity which helps elderly and terminally ill people to look after their pets is seeking volunteer dog walkers in Chipping Sodbury.

A volunteer is urgently needed to help walk two ten year old Staffy/Jack Russell crosses called  Leela and Molly. 

The Cinnamon Trust is a national charity which aims to keep owners and pets together for as long as it can with the help of volunteers.  The volunteers can walk dogs, take pets to the vet, clean litter trays, pop into an owners’ home to feed or play with their pets, and foster them if the owner goes into hospital. 

Many elderly people become very worried about how their pets will be cared for if they become ill or infirm and feel that their only option is to re-home them.
