ANIMAL lovers are being urged to lend a hand to help elderly and terminally ill people to look after their pets.
National charity The Cinnamon Trust is appealing for volunteers in the Sheffield area.
A spokeswoman said: “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 Sheffield.
“We particularly need volunteers able to offer walks for two people’s much-loved dogs – a lovely 13-year-old labrador and a cute, little two-year -old pug.”
