Adoption Process and Public Opening Times at our Rescue Centre

We have now been in our rescue centre in Llanharan for four months and it has certainly been a steep learning curve for us all. After some teething issues we have reviewed our adoption process and public opening times. Taking into account visitor, staff and volunteer feedback we have some concerns that we are not offering our visitors and potential adopters the best customer experience possible. We also have some concerns about the welfare impact of an "open house" viewing policy on our lovely rescue dogs.
 

Paws for Tea

We have been lucky to receive a good review from local blog 'Welsh Cakes and Wellies' – you can read what they said about the café and store here.

Our charity shop in Pontypridd is doing really well and is now benefiting from our very own in-store dog friendly cafe.

Puppy Newspaper Appeal

Our Cocker Spaniel puppies are growing bigger every day, moving around and eating lots. The inevitable result of this means that we need donations of old newspapers to line the kennel floors. This not only helps us to keep them all clean, but is a hygienic way of picking up the poop!

If you can help, you can drop the newspapers off at our centre in Llanharan, South Wales from 12 pm to 4 pm every day except Wednesday.

Thank You From Rocky

Rocky says "thank you" to everyone who has donated to help with the vet fees for his surgery to repair his broken kneecap. He also sends an extra "woof" to the anonymous donor who kindly donated £500.

The surgery went well and Rocky is still a lively, fun-loving pup and is a real happy, smiley boy. He needs to go back to the vets in two weeks to have his staples out, then again to have the pins removed. 

Maddie Needs Your Help

** GREAT NEWS - MADDIE NOW HAS A LOVELY FOSTER HOME **

Maddie is about 9 or 10 years old and is a Chihuahua cross who was surrendered into our care via Social Services due to her owner being ill. As well as helping strays, ensuring we are there to help pet owners in crisis is a key aspect of our work.

She is a lovely wee thing, enjoys a short walk but doesn't need much exercise, loves a fuss and is very affectionate.
