A charity is hoping a kind-hearted Machynlleth resident can help a housebound hound get some fresh air.

The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity whose volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care.

The group says it needs volunteers to take Snowy, a 4-year-old Bichon, on walks to help out his owner.

"A large number of elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets, feeling 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," said Sally Collins, for the Cinnamon Trust.

"We urgently need volunteers to help a resident of Machynlleth with some dog walking support for their lovely dog Snowy, a 4 year old Bichon Frise, so we wondered whether anyone might like to volunteer to help?"
