Here at the volunteer we love to meet your four legged best friends.

All we ask is that they stay on a lead there could be others who are not so friendly and if they do need to go, you pick it up and bag it please.


We would love to hear from and see our doggy friends.

If you visit why not take a picture of them in the pub or garden and share to our facebook page.
