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

We urgently need volunteers in Long Sutton who are able to help a local resident and their two adorable dogs – Kiwi, an eight-year-old Shih Tzu, and Lilly, a six-year-old Yorkshire Terrier who would love to go for a good walk. If you would like to help we would be delighted to hear from you.

What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older eventually affects our ability to look after our four legged companions?

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.

We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.

If you would like a chat about volunteering or to request a registration form please call during during office hours 01736 758707 or email us at appeals@cinnamon.org.uk or check out our website or Facebook page for more details www.cinnamon.org.uk
