London Mayor Boris Johnson asks City Hall to 'clean and green' London with Dogs Trust

Happy news for Dogs Trust and many other organisations in the capital today. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is recommending that his City Hall staff spend at least one day a year volunteering to help 'clean and green' London; Dogs Trust is one of the suggested organisations that staff could get involved with. We commented that:
"Dogs Trust is extremely pleased by the Mayor of London's recommendation. The charity works hard in the community promoting responsible dog ownership and welcomes the support from senior London officials."
Other organisations mentioned included the National Trust, Trees for Cities, the Environmental Trust, Enfield Conservation Volunteers and Spitalfields City Farm among others.

Ways you can help Dogs Trust:

Volunteers can do a variety of jobs for their local Rehoming Centre. City Hall employees can head to their nearest, West London's Harefield, to help out with the following, but remember there are 17 Centres across the UK:

* Fundraising Volunteer
* Dog Walker
* Dog Socialiser
* Pre-Adoption Home Visitor

We also have regular campaigns throughout the year that you can get involved in publicising, such as National Microchipping Month and the ever-necessary Poop Scoop Week.
