Top lawyers from around Sheffield took a paws from their caseloads - to step out in aid of a pet rescue charity.

Sheffield and District Law Society joined a sponsored dog walk through the city centre to help Rotherham-based animal welfare charity RAIN Rescue.

More than 20 members of the law society took part in the event.

RAIN Rescue, along with youth homeless charity Roundabout, are the two nominated charities of Giles Searby, president of the Sheffield and District Law Society.

Founded in 2002 by Jacquie Neilson, RAIN Rescue helps to find new homes for animals that would otherwise be destroyed. The charity provides up to 20 temporary homes in either kennels or foster care and helps to re-home more than 300 animals every year.

Mr Searby said: “The charity dog walk was a well-attended event that gave some of our members an opportunity to find out more about one of the two charities that the society will be supporting during my presidential year.

“When Jacquie and her team invited me down to see first-hand the work they undertake, one of the first things that struck me was the time and dedication that Jacquie and her team give, to help find new homes for animals that would otherwise have been destroyed.”

Throughout the year the society will undertake a number of fundraising activities to support the two local good causes.
