Our dog walkers and cat socialisers are a selfless group of people who spend hours walking our dogs. They are all volunteers who give of their time on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings to give our dogs and our cats the much needed attention and exercise they require.
It is heart-warming to watch the dogs become more and more confident over a week of dog walking. Some dogs experience being on a lead for the first time and need a lot of coaxing, but with kindness and lots of treats soon come around. This experience also helps to socialise the dogs with others and gives us an opportunity to see the temperament of the animals in our care.
Many of our cats come from homes that could no longer keep them and are very sociable. Having a gentle, loving person cuddle and groom them has a profound effect on the cat’s wellbeing.
