THE Cinnamon Trust, the national charity for the elderly and terminally ill and their pets, are looking for volunteers to help a Tintagel resident.
They have an owner in Tintagel asking for some dog walking support but sadly don’t have enough local volunteers to help.
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 free pet care.
A spokesperson said: “We are looking for dog walking volunteers to help a resident of Tintagel and their delightful dog who would love to go for a good walk.
“Many elderly or ill pet owners worry about their ability to provide proper care for their animals and start looking to rehome what may be their only companion. 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 or hospice care, and even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.”
