Plea for dog-walker in Minnigaff

A charity has launched an appeal for help to look after a dog in Minnigaff.

The Cinnamon Trust is looking for volunteers to step forward to care for the animal.

The Cinnamon Trust is a national charity for the elderly and terminally ill and their pets. It seeks to keep owner and pet 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 trust’s aim is to relieve the owners of any worry concerning the welfare of their pets both during and after their own lifetime, making it unique among charities.

It is urgently looking for dog-walking volunteers to help a resident of Minnigaff and wondered if you would be able to help us publicise our need for volunteers in the area.

All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them. Teams take it in turn to visit housebound owners, to take dogs for daily walks, volunteers foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, clean the budgie’s cage out. Volunteers take any problem posed in day to day care of pets.
