Our volunteers have amazing things to say about POOPS!
“We get to spend that time together (Liz and her son), in our busy world that hour is a great time to chat about school and really just to connect and catch up…It’s a great way to give back and its lovely building a connection with the owners and getting to know them and their dogs.”
"We actually first met on Valentines day (I kid you not) and his owner Maureen arranged for him to have a doggy grooming session that day, it really felt like a blind date!...My life is quite busy and sometimes to just have a lovely walk with Jimmy keeps me grounded, we usually sit and cuddle for 10 minutes mid-walk which is relaxing and helps me take time out and enjoy the view and Jimmy”
"I am so happy I joined POOPs. Since my mum says I can't have a dog (yes, I'm 32 and still living at home with my parents #adulting), volunteering with POOPs means I can finally share all the love I have saved up with the four dogs that I walk."
“I always want to help people when I can and I love animals. It makes perfect sense to be a POOPS volunteer.”
“ I love volunteering for POOPS. It gives me so much pleasure to make the dogs happy and the owners as well. When I pick the dogs up they already sit in the window and wait, wagging their tails, so excited to get out and about.”
“If you volunteer in things, it's lovely for the people you volunteer with, but it's really wonderful for yourself, it raises your self esteem, it makes you feel useful, it gives you something to do, it keeps you involved. I think volunteering has been the best thing for me since sliced bread”
“It is the most rewarding work I do. I’m so pleased I found POOPS and it has helped me prepare for another dog in my life who I hope one day will walk with me and my beautiful POOPS dogs”
"I feel very lucky to have two dachshunds in my life, with the added benefit of knowing that volunteering means helping someone else as a bonus, it’s amazing"
