Appeal For Volunteer Dog Boarders

Volunteers are needed to be boarders for trainee guide dogs in Redcar.

The role involves having a dog to stay for up to 12 weeks in its final stage of training. This is mostly in the evening and at weekends but some availability during the day is an advantage. All that is asked is that people have a hard area for the dog to do its ‘business’ and that they follow some simple guidelines regarding feeding and behaviour routines.

The role is ideal for someone who loves dogs and would enjoy their companionship but can’t commit to long-term ownership. Guide Dogs pays all vets and food bills.

Anyone who is interested, or would like to find out more, should phone 08453 727423 or email newcastle@guidedogs.org.uk
