The Glasgow Team 2018-2019

Hannah Dodds

Outreach Officer

My name’s Hannah and I’m one of the outreach officers this year. Having lived in Glasgow all my life and I have seen the deprivation many homeless people face. Becoming involved with Trusty Paws has been a great way to help these people and their pets live better lives. As an outreach officer, I have a hands on role working with many volunteer groups who all provide great services for the homeless community. 

I have always had dogs throughout my life and understand how important they are to people. I hope this experience will allow me to help others and give something back to the Glasgow community.

Kerri Sinclair

Fundraising Manager

 Hiya, I’m Kerri a 4th year Glasgow vet student from a small village called Roslin, on the outskirts of Edinburgh. I am really excited to be one of this year’s fundraising managers for Trusty Paws, as I hope to bring fresh ideas for raising money for this great charity. Having grown up with dogs I understand how strong the bond is between pet and owner and cannot imagine how awful it must feel not to be able to provide for your beloved pet. I think this is a fantastic charity as it gives peace of mind to those less fortunate as their pets can be cared for without financial pressures. I have always enjoyed helping charities and have fundraising experience from volunteering at an RDA stable before coming to university. Since coming to vet school, I have always wanted to be a part of Trusty Paws as I think it is a brilliant organisation as it not only provides preventative medical care to those who aren’t able to afford it but also gives vet students the chance to practice our vaccination and other basic clinical skills.

Emma Adams-Nisbet

PR manager

 Hello, I’m Emma, the PR manager for Trusty Paws. I am very excited to take on this new role and hope to keep the public updated on all our fundraising and  events (as well as posting some cute photos of the dogs we help).

 I think Trusty Paws is a great charity that not only helps homeless dogs but also their owners. In my spare time I enjoy dancing, hiking and going to the pub. Once graduated I hope to go into small animal medicine or exotics. The charity has done some great work in the community so far and I hope to share this with the public.

Tonitia Mowat

Fundraising Manager

I’m one of the fundraising managers for Trusty |Paws this year along with Kerri. So, we’re busying organising events for the year as well as the rodeo stall for next April. I wanted to work with Trusty Paws because I had heard about the work they were doing for people and animals in Glasgow. I felt I was fortunate enough to have the means of providing help and wanted to give back to this new community I had moved to for university. I hope that my time in Trusty Paws will make a difference to at least one person’s life, and having dogs of my own I know how much people love their animals and want to do the best for them in whatever situation they are in.

Miho Kumanoto

Secretary

Hey there! My name is Miho and I am a fourth year vet student from Hong Kong. This year I am one of the secretaries for Trusty Paws and I am excited to contribute to this charity. I strongly believe in the importance of mental health and wellbeing, and I feel that the impact the clinic has on helping the homeless maintain a bond with their animals is extremely valuable. The clinic also gives these dogs an opportunity to access veterinary care, which they would not have otherwise. In my spare time I love dancing and eating vegan junk food!

Kirsten Loudon

Outreach Officer

Hello! I’m Kirsten and I am one of the outreach officers for Trusty Paws. I am from Dunfermline, Scotland and moved to Glasgow when I started studying at vet school. I’d been interested in getting involved with the Trusty Paws committee when I first heard about it because I thought it was such a great cause - helping the homeless and improving the welfare of their companions. I think it’s so important to have such a great charity like this, especially in a huge city like Glasgow where homelessness is such a problem and these people often cannot get the care they need for their dogs. I love being involved in my role as an outreach officer because we get to reach out directly to the homeless people with dogs and tell them about our clinics and the help we can give them. We also get to work alongside other homeless charities and see some of the great work other organisations are doing.

Outside of studying I love to spend my spare time running, baking and travelling. Once I graduate I hope to go into small animal medicine and work with charities abroad to see some more of the world.
