Companionship LeadGive a Dog a Bone…and an animal a home
Give a Dog a Bone…and an animal a home (SC044440) is a young, unique and award winning charity, supporting the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion.
We aim to tackle loneliness for the individual and homelessness for the animal, by removing financial barriers to an over 60s person adopting a rescue animal.
We have recently expanded our charitable services by launching our new ‘Companionship in the Community’ project. This is where we provide a safe space for retired people to learn new skills and meet new friends.
We currently seek a Companionship Lead, who will be the main point of contact at our Shawlands, Glasgow space. The successful candidate will be warm, friendly, capable and have knowledge of the animal rescue world.
This is a part time role of 20 hours per week.
Please note that the closing date for this vacancy is Thursday 17th May 2018.
Interviews will be held on Friday 25th May 2018.
The offer to the successful candidate will be conditional upon the provision of satisfactory references and a Disclosure Scotland check.
For further detail and application form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the Community Space, 988 Pollokshaws Road, Shawlands, G41 2HA.

I would just like to say how much you help me to feed my hounds. If it wasn’t for your very kind help, I would not be able to keep them all! You’re an angel and my hero!! Your help has saved my life – the hounds give me a reason to get up and go out. I’ve met so many people to talk to while walking them all. Once again thank you.
Without Give a Dog a Bone, I would not have been able to find the amazing new family for my little biscon felix, who we had to rehome due to family illness. This charity are also looking into supporting my parents financially with their senior dog and trying to arrange a volunteer dog walker for them!! You are truly an amazing and selfless charity.
