The Cinnamon Trust Needs Volunteers in Westonzoyland

Posted on 14th May, 2019 in News

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 are looking to welcome new dog walking volunteers to help a resident of Westonzoyland and their lovely dog Merlin a 4 year old Bichon Frise who would love to go for a good walk so wondered whether the Parish Council would be able to help us to publicise our need for help in the area.

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.

All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them.  Teams take it in turn to visit housebound owners to take the dog for a walk, volunteers foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, even clean out the budgie’s cage or cats litter trays.
