Albany Pet Services shared the love this summer by donating money for each dog walk completed in July to the Blue Cross.We
Lisa Sinnott, founder of Albany Pet Services providers of solo dog walkers, cat sitters and pet sitters said: “I admire the Blue Cross’ multi-disciplinary approach: they provide educational talks about dog body language and how to care for pets (prevention and education), they provide shelter for pets in need as well as providing training, vet care and help them to find new homes (proactive) and they provide a pet bereavement support line (aftercare) for people who have had to say goodbye to their pets for reasons such as bereavement or change in circumstances, such as divorces or redundancies which means they can no longer care for them. They’re a great charity and the dogs, cats, and rabbits at the centre near St Albans are gorgeous!”
Thomas Martin, regional fundraising officer for the Blue Cross, thanked Albany Pet Services by saying “this fundraising idea will have a big impact on the pets we help, thank you so much!”
Lisa has undergone their training course and volunteered on the Pet Bereavement Line providing support to people who have said goodbye to their beloved pet’s through illness or enforced separation. She has also presented to children about how to stay safe around dog’s, and how to care for pets.
Lisa and her colleague Asher presented the cheque at the rehoming centre in Kimpton, Hertfordshire which is shortly undergoing refurbishment. The Kimpton centre has been caring for animals for 70 years.
