Long-serving Dogs Trust volunteer Ron given 90th birthday celebration

A fantastic elderly local volunteer at a Kenilworth charity has been honoured with a 90th birthday celebration.

Dog lover Ron Brisby, from Leek Wootton, first gave up his time for Dogs Trust 30 years ago when he retired.

Now it’s believed he’s walked around 4,500 dogs over 3,000 miles.

“He loves all dogs, but is particularly fond of German Shepherd and the bouncy personality of the small dogs,” said Dogs Trust.

“Ron’s volunteering duties include walking the dogs and keeping them company by giving them plenty of love and affection while they wait to find new homes.”

And Ron added: “I have loved every minute of my time at Dogs Trust. I enjoy meeting the variety of dogs at the centre and seeing how happy they are when I come to take them out for walks.”

“It’s incredibly rewarding to see the dogs going off to new homes, especially if they have been at waiting a while.”
