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. If they do need to go can 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.
