    Feedback from volunteers:

    It was very well-organised. I thoroughly enjoyed walking the dogs, and spending time with/around the dogs and people who are passionate about their welfare.

    I enjoyed playing with dogs and meeting new friends! And the personnel there in the dog trust are all very welcoming, it's a wonderful experience!
