Condor helps keep the dogs’ tails wagging


Local welfare charity, Wellbeing Animals Guernsey, has used proceeds from the Condor Community Fund to purchase equipment for therapy dogs to support its work with vulnerable islanders.

The charity was a recent beneficiary of the Condor Fund so could purchase much-needed equipment for their animals, including leads and bandanas.

"We are a hugely passionate group of animal lovers who believe dogs are a perfect antidoteto stress and anxiety so the Condor donation helps us carry on supporting local people in the community, and we are grateful," said Marguerite Talmage, Chair of WAG. 

"Purchasing the leads and bandanas was relatively simple – asking the animals to pose for the photograph was another thing altogether."

Tracy Peters, Condor’s Community Officer, added: "We regularly see passengers travel by sea with assistance dogs so were delighted to be able to help the WAG team and their four-legged friends with the work they do for this amazing charity."

Condor’s Community Fund was established earlier this year and is designed to supportIslanders who give up their time to develop community activities. The Fund saw 83 applications from across the Islands with a focus on sustainability, local benefit and enjoyment for others.
