A charity which offers pet care to the elderly is urgently looking for volunteers to help with dog walking in Spalding.

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 spokesman said: “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 worried about their ability to care for their pets, feeling their only option is to rehome them.

“But our volunteers will 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.

“We are always seeking new volunteers so even if you can only spare an hour a week we’d love to hear from you.”

If you are aged over 16 and can help please call during office hours on 01736 758707 or via email: volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk Or visit www.cinnamon.org.uk
