A CHARITY is looking to welcome volunteers to help a resident of Clatter and their adorable dog, Ted a five-year old Golden Retriever, who would just love to go for a good walk.

The Cinnamon Trust is a 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.

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 the. This is where a national network of dedicated volunteers steps in to offer support enabling them to stay together. Volunteers walk the dog for a housebound owner, foster pets when owners need hospital care, fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.

All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them - take turns to visit housebound owners to take the dog for a walk, foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, take pets to the vet, even clean out the budgie’s cage or cats litter year old trays. If anyone would like to register or even have a chat about registering call direct on 01736 758707 or email appeals@cinnamon.org.uk
