My husband and I have been volunteers for DAWGS in some form or another for around 23 years. We were also very privileged to foster then adopt a beautiful Lurcher X puppy called Holly, who joined Archie our Border Terrier at the time.
I have been involved with DAWGS for around 18 years following the adoption of a rather gorgeous, mischievous flat coated retriever, Woody. As a lifelong dog lover, I am keen to support the charity, attend and run events. I enjoy looking for new fundraising ideas and we now run bingo nights in Inverurie which are very popular.
I have volunteered at the DAWGS charity shop in Alford since 2011. It’s such a friendly place to work and I always feel supported. In the shop I do whatever’s needed, from sorting donations to helping out customers. I especially enjoy the social aspect – meeting lots of people and getting to know our customers. The charity shop is also a great place to pick up a bargain.
Along with my wife, I have volunteered for DAWGS since 2000. DAWGS is a very worthwhile charity which continues to do vital work rehoming dogs – long may it continue.
