We caught up with Dogs Trust Manchester’s Supporter Relations Officer Nicola to find out about her work in the Salford area.

Our Supporter Relations Officer’s offer free talks to community groups and organize tours of the rehoming centre. They are also your key point of contact if you are looking to support your nearest rehoming centre. As part of her role, Nicola has been attending Dying Matters events across Salford to promote our Canine Care Card scheme.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have attended two Dying Matters events across Salford, the first at Eccles Town Hall and the second was just last week at Pendleton Gateway. Thank you to those involved for inviting Dogs Trust to be part of these events.  Dying Matters is a coalition of individual and organisational members across England and Wales, which aims to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.

This year they ask ‘Are We Ready’ for our own deaths, or the deaths of those we care about? This is both an emotional question but also a practical question involving wills, funeral planning and more. Dogs Trust were invited to speak to people about our Canine Care Card which ensures your dogs happiness and security after your lifetime. If you have ever wondered what would happen to my dog if I were to die suddenly – you are not alone. Responsible Dog owners know they need to make sure their furry friend will be properly looked after in the event of their death especially if they don’t have any friends or family who would be in a position to look after their Dog. The Canine Care Card is a special free service that will guarantee you peace of mind knowing that your dog’s future will be a safe and happy one after your lifetime. 

More information about the Canine Care Card can be found here. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Nicola Hardman on 0161 337 3605 or email [email protected]
