Fish4Dogs is proud to be supporting The Cinnamon Trust
Here at Fish4Dogs we are delighted to be supporting The Cinnamon Trust, a charity that helps elderly and vulnerable owners keep their pets at home for as long as possible during illness by, amongst other things, providing a network of over 16,000 volunteer dog walkers.
The Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity which seeks to relieve problems faced by elderly and terminally-ill people and their pets. It was founded in 1985 by Mrs Averil Jarvis MBE, who named the charity in memory of her beloved Corgi, Cinnamon.
The Cinnamon Trust could not do its vital work, without its network of volunteers and we at Fish4Dogs are hoping to assist with the volunteer recruitment drive to meet the ever-increasing demands upon The Cinnamon Trust services.
The Trust regularly appeal for volunteers in areas around the country to walk specific dogs. At Fish4Dogs we will be re-posting these appeals so that our followers can have the chance to make a world of difference to an owner and their dog.
If you would like to get involved, please go to The Cinnamon Trust’s website to learn more and download the volunteer registration form.
The Trust will then walk you through the process and then hopefully pair you with a dog in your area.
You can also telephone The Cinnamon Trust for more information 01736 758707.
The Trust also arranges foster care when owners go into hospital, can help owners find pet-friendly residential homes and, if this is not possible, the life-time care of the pet while maintaining contact between the owner and their pet. The charity also takes on the life-time care of bereaved pets.
