How many places are on offer?
Exercising dogs for older people who are housebound or have reduced mobility.
If an elderly person becomes housebound or has poor mobility, we try to arrange a rota of volunteers to exercise their dog on a daily basis. We always try to match volunteers with someone in/near their home area and the commitment can be as much or as little as the volunteer can spare.
Time Flexible. Please apply through website. http://www.cinnamon.org.uk/volunteers/
