This Christmas, a team of extra special people have pledged to give up their well-earnt holiday time to give back to pets in need.
Working hard behind the scenes, you probably wouldn’t even spot them if you visited our Thirsk rehoming centre because they are always busy and focused on the job in hand – but if you did, you’d be greeted with a smile. In addition to their usual volunteering hours, these amazing people are donating even more of their spare time to make Christmas that little bit more special for the dogs and cats at our centre in north Yorkshire.
Caroline Cocker and her partner David Price have been taking homeless dogs out and about to give them a break from kennels for three years, and during that time have walked over 50 canines.
David explained: “At the time we first thought about volunteering we had house rabbits and worked full time so we couldn’t have a dog of our own, but we love dogs and we love walking. We contacted the centre and said ‘do you mind if we come down and take dogs out for weekend adventures?’”
