The Cinnamon Trust Needs You.
Registered Charity No 1134680
Dog Walking Appeal Verwood

The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity formed to support the elderly and terminally ill and their much loved, much needed pets. Volunteers help to keep owners and pets together either by walking a dog for a housebound owner, fostering pets when the owners need hospital care and even cleaning out a bird cage.

Unfortunately we have a shortage of volunteers in Verwood  The Cinnamon Trust is desperate for volunteers in the Verwood area. If you can only offer an hour a week it will improve the dogís quality of life so much and give the owner peace of mind.
