The Cinnamon Trust charity is looking for dog walking volunteers to help a resident of Heywood and their dog, who would love to go for a good walk
A national charity which helps the elderly with free pet care is looking for volunteers to walk dogs in Heywood.
The Cinnamon Trust helps those over the age of 65 and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of free pet care.
The charity is looking for dog walking volunteers to help a resident of Heywood and their dog, who would love to go for a good walk.
A representative of The Cinnamon Trust said: “Many elderly or ill pet owners worry about their ability to provide proper care for their animals and start looking to rehome what may be their only companion.
“This is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together. We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital or hospice care, and even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.”
Pets can be registered with The Cinnamon Trust so they will come into the trust's guardianship should the owner pass away or have to go into residential care: they are then rehomed with a long-term foster volunteer and will live with them for life, with the trust covering vets' fees, holiday cover and ongoing support.
If you would like to have a more in-depth chat about becoming a volunteer, please call the Cinnamon Trust during office hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm) on 01736 758 701.
