We are a national charity with volunteer members, who with their temperament assessed dogs reach out to people in need.
As a volunteeryou will bring joy and reassurance into the lives of the elderly and the vulnerable, stressed and overworked. In fact a dog can help in so many ways.
All breeds, crossbreeds, shapes and sizes are welcome. The all important factor is temperament. The dogs should be friendly and outgoing, clean, healthy, well-groomed and love to be fussed. Upon joining you receive an I.D. badge to wear during your visits. There are polo shirts and fleeces for you and leads, collars, bandanas or vests for your dog, all with our logo embroidered. You do not have to purchase any of these, but it is nice to look part of the team.
Our Membership fees are kept as low as possible. The fee only covers our basic stationery processing and some of the insurance costs. We have to fund all other costs, to support members and the administration of Canine Concern.
Like all charities, we actively seek support from the public and corporative bodies, without their help we could not survive.
If you feel that you are able to support further yourself there is a donation section that you may go to.
As a member we appreciate that you are giving your time to the Charity freely and donating to us is not part of the membership requirements.
If you just want to support us, so we can continue this work, please join as a support member. You will receive a quarterly news letter keeping you up to date with our work. You do not need a dog, but would be welcome to help with any events or talks.
