El­derly need help to walk their dogs

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A NOT-FOR-PROFIT char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion is call­ing on dog lovers to do­nate their time to a good cause.

Pets of Older Per­sons (POOPs) helps res­i­dents over 65 who are un­able to walk their own dogs be­cause of health rea­sons.

As age and dis­abil­ity pre­vents many peo­ple from be­ing able to fully care for their pets, POOPs steps in and of­fers a free dog-walk­ing ser­vice.

“We are call­ing for vol­un­teers to join POOPs and help us walk th­ese lovely dogs, par­tic­u­larly in Como and sur­round­ing ar­eas and Bel­mont and Kew­dale,” POOPs south­ern sub­urbs co-or­di­na­tor Beth Wright said.

Cur­rently the or­gan­i­sa­tion has clients in a range of ar­eas that need as­sis­tance.

More in­for­ma­tion at www.poop­swa.org.au.

Grab a leash and lend a hand with POOPs, which or­gan­ises dog walk­ers for the el­derly.
