Dog Walking

There are two different opportunities for dog walking within the project.

Residential Dog Walking –
This project coordinates dog-walkers for residents who may not be able to walk their dogs regularly, whether due to illness, operations, from being housebound, working full-time or elderly. Most walkers will walk once a week. Volunteers can state their preference of type/size of dog. If you miss your pet or just want to get some fresh air, this flexible project is perfect.

SAD Kennels Walking- 

This project involves volunteering at the Deerness stray action kennels near Durham, walking dogs who are waiting to be rehomed. Walkers can sign up when they have the time for one of 4 weekly morning slots with SCA transport provided. These slots are currently Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9:00-11:30 am.

Where? Around Durham or at Deerness Kennels (Langley Moor)

When? Arranged with dog owner or during the weekly SAD slots

There will also be the opportunity to be involved with a charity dog show in December.
