I have been a volunteer for Waifs & strays since the beginning as I am fortunate enough to be the daughter of Sue Phillips who co-runs the rescue. I have been very lucky and have grown up with a large family of dogs and worked with them since a young age, my passion has earnt me an NVQ2 in animal care (dog specific).

Unfortunately I now work full time as a manager of a high street shop so don’t have much spare time, so volunteering for Waifs and Strays is very special to me as it allows me to still use my knowledge to help dogs be it assessing one before it comes into rescue or visiting one to see how they’re settling in their forever home. It allows me to give something back to these amazing creatures after all they have given to me.
