Guide Dog puppies set to take over Leamington's Royal Priors Shopping Centre

Leamington Editorial 11th May, 2023   0

FOUR-legged recruits from charity Guide Dogs will be taking over the Royal Priors Shopping Centre in Leamington this weekend.

Dogs, staff and volunteers from the sight loss organisation will be on the upper floor of the centre on Saturday (May 13) from 9.30am to 5.30pm as part of The Big Help Out initiative.

The charity is looking for more volunteers who could give temporary homes to their guide dog puppies and guide dogs in training and permanent homes to their guide dog mums.

Verity O’Donnell, Volunteering Coordinator for Guide Dogs in Warwickshire, said: “We’ll have a team of staff and volunteers at The Royal Priors Shopping Centre this Saturday.

“They’ll be joined by some of our life-changing dogs, including guide dog puppies at the start of their journey and guide dog mums, who bring litters of future guide dogs into the world.

“We’ve got lots of volunteering roles which give you the opportunity to have one of our dogs living with you, with all costs covered, as well as other roles supporting our other services.

“Come along and meet us and find out how you can get involved.”

The charity has two local centres – a training centre based on Warwick New Rd and its National Centre, just outside Leamington, where its puppies are cared for.
