An hour or so of your time, means so much to others. Why don’t you join us and get involved?
We cannot promise, but we will inform our members in your area, maybe they can take on another home. If not, we will put you on our waiting list, and will contact you if a new volunteer joins us in your area.
Please contact us to request a visit from our volunteers.
The dogs should be friendly and outgoing, clean, healthy, well-groomed and love to be fussed. All breeds, crossbreeds, shapes and sizes are welcome. The all important factor is temperament. All members are eligible to register their dogs in the Canine Care Dog scheme, should they wish, providing the dog is found to be suitable and will be accompanied on their first visit to an establishment within reasonable distance from where they live.
Upon joining you receive an I.D. badge to wear during your visits. There are polo shirts and fleeces for you and leads, collars, bandanas or vests for your dog, all with our logo embroidered. You do not have to purchase any of these, but it is nice to look part of the team.
There is no extra registration fee as the subscription covers your dog up to £5,000.000 against third party claims for any accidental damage or injury caused. This is renewed annually.
