If you are a dog owner and you have symptoms of the Corona Virus and are self-Isolating please take precautions with your dog.

It is not believed that dogs transmit the virus but recent evidence in China suggests they can contract it and possibly become ill. Research is still on-going but please take measures to protect your dog by:

Opening windows so that your home is well ventilated.

If you are coughing, please try and keep your dog in a separate room or wear a face mask at least.

ALWAYS wash your hands thoroughly before touching your dog, their food or their things.

Keep your dog's food and treats sealed in containers.

Do not let other people pet your dog.

Do not sleep with your dog next to you.

Keep floors and surfaces as clean as possible with disinfectant.

?Wash your hands with soap and water not hand sanitizer as this can be dangerous for dogs if they lick it!

Dispose of tissues straight away in the bin, do not allow your dog to sniff things that could be harmful.

Make sure you keep their lead and collar clean by regular washing or using anti-bacterial spray, the same applies to their toys and bedding and of course feeding bowls.

Further information is available on our dedicated "Corona Virus Help Page."

Please share with family, friends and neighbours.

We are here to help dog owners cope with the ever changing situation with Coronavirus. Whether you are just looking for ways to stimulate your dog at home for the months ahead or if you are seriously worried about getting ill or having to go into hospital and have no support network to care for your beloved dog(s).

We have a dedicated page on our website to address these issues as well as offering practical support now.

You can also volunteer your help to help others. Please go to our Corona Virus Help Page and please share this information with friends and family.

We have been hit hard by the social restrictions and financial uncertainty and there appears to be no mention as yet of help to the voluntary sector like us from the government so if you can help by making a donation, any amount would much appreciated. Details of how to do this are also on our Coronavirus Help Page.

Keep yourself and your dog safe. xx

Can you help us to help more dogs?
