DOGS are safer in Exmouth, thanks to a new service from Claire Mansfield, aka Dogsbody the Petcarer.
Veterinary nurse Claire recently launched Fetch Me Home. Dogs that are registered under the scheme can have Claire’s contact details as well as their owners on their collar.
“So if someone finds a dog and they can’t get hold of the owner, they can ring me,” said Claire. “I go and collect the dog and look after it until the owner is ready to have it back.”
So far, thankfully, no one has had to use the service.
“No dogs have been lost, which is a good thing,” said Claire, “but it’s there now as a service.”
You can find out more this Sunday (August 11) when Claire will be at Sidmouth’s Donkey Sanctuary open day and at the Children’s Hospice South West-sponsored doggie trek at Exeter Quay. More details: www.dogsbodythepetcarer.co.uk
