Central team changes
Over the past few years, the teams of volunteers covering the areas within the Central region has grown into an amazing group of people, all very different, bringing different skills and qualities to the team, but united with a common passion of helping to reunite missing dogs and supporting owners.
DogLost is now proud to be able to support owners across all areas within the Central region; the teams also work with some wonderful local groups, dedicated & united in their mission.
Some areas have larger teams than others and to help us to be able to provide support to as many dogs and owners as possible; we have made some changes to some areas in order to achieve this.
Herefordshire, Worcestershire & Shropshire volunteers have been headed for some time by our co-ordinator Nicky McCarthy. Nicky isn’t local to this area & also supports her local team in the Bucks & surrounding areas. As a credit to the team, this area has grown hugely over the past few years and the three counties are a vast area to cover. Therefore, this area will now be revised to a more manageable Herefordshire & Shropshire.
West Midlands & Staffordshire areas have been & continue to be well supported by other groups in the area, our social media volunteer, Julie Smith, has done a wonderful job of managing the social media for the area, mostly solely, for a very long time now. Julie is not local to this area & also runs social media for her local teams in Surrey & South London.
We are now in a position to be able to offer more support to the West Midlands area and to the local groups who already provide an outstanding level of support for missing dogs.
Doglost Warwickshire team has been headed by our co-ordinator Lin Iddon for a couple of years now; Lin also heads our Oxfordshire area. Lin has an ever-growing, strong & dedicated team who are able to provide high levels of support. Lin has kindly agreed to extend her area to encompass Worcestershire & West Midlands.
I am immensely proud of all of our volunteers, the Central Region team work tirelessly and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of them for all they have done and all they continue to do. I would like to also say thank you to every single person who does what they can to help missing dogs; every single thing makes a difference to what can be achieved together.
We have revised our local Facebook groups to reflect the changes and hope that this won’t cause too much confusion!
