A charity is seeking volunteers to help walk dogs for two pet owners in Skegness and Burgh le Marsh

The Cinnamon Trust helps people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care.

A Cinnamon Trust spokesman said: “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.

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

Anyone able to help should call 01736 758707 office hours or email volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk For more information visit www.cinnamon.org.uk
