A charity that helps terminally ill or elderly people to care for their pets is urgently looking for dog walking volunteers.

The Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity to help those struggling by walking a dog for the housebound owner, fostering pets when owners need hospital care, fetching cat food, cleaning out the bird cage or litter trays.

Tanya Swanson of The Cinnamon Trust said: “Elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets, and feel that their only option is to rehome them, this is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together.

“We always need new volunteers, even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you.

“We have a seven-year-old Jack Russell cross who would love to go for a good walk.”
