The Trustees of ARC would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers, dog walkers & members of the public, who turn up throughout the year to help & support all ARC's animals. Thanks also to Aberporth Dog Club for helping with the socialisation & training of some of our more nervous dogs, both before & after they have been adopted; to Louise, of All Four Paws Training, for freely giving her time & expertise to help sort out any behavioural problems, & to our fosterers, both long & short term, who care for the dogs as if they are their own. Special thanks to Kelly & Shaun from Kelsion Boarding Kennels & Cattery for the huge amount of excellent work they do in looking after all our animals - no matter what breed or size; but the BIGGEST thanks must go to all the fabulous people who have adopted ARC's dogs & cats. Without you there would be no rescue to run. Thank you from all our animals & especially those who are sadly, no longer with us.
Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Changes to the Pet Travel Scheme have been announced by DEFRA -
to take effect from 29 December 2014:
Please check with DEFRA or www.gov.uk
On March 1st 2015 – it will be compulsory for ALL dogs in Wales to be microchipped (England in 2016).
Throughout 2014 the Dogs’ Trust are running free microchipping events in both Wales & England. See their website for more information on where & when these events will be taking place.
Participating vets will also be offering this service. Visit the following website for details of which vet practices are in the scheme. www.chipmydog.org.uk/participating-vets/
You DO NOT have to be registered with a participating vet to have you dog(s) chipped for free, but you MUST ring the Dogs’ Trust – 0330 123 0334 to register your dog(s) for this offer.
There is no limit to the number of dogs that you can have chipped on this scheme, and the offer only applies to dogs & NOT cats. (Most rescues & vets will chip your cat for a small fee)
KEEP LEGAL – CHIP YOUR DOG
You can now book a holiday, with your dog/s, in beautiful Scotland & help raise money for ARC.
Visit: http://misfitsholidays.weebly.com, book your holiday & tick the box for Animal Rescue Cymru & we will receive £10 for every booking made. ARC will also then be entered into a draw at the end of the season where the winner will get all the profits for the season as their prize. REMEMBER TO TICK THE ARC BOX.
Help by becoming a member of A.R.C. - Membership is £15 per person per year (£10 senior citizens & concessions) with a twice-yearly news letter.
If you are on a means-tested benefit, you can get your dog neutered for £30 through the Dogs' Trust neutering scheme, & micro-chipped for free, at vets that are participating in this scheme. Proof of benefit will be required. Call 07932 115750 for more information or visit the Dogs' Trust website
Offer only open to residents in Wales, aged 18 or over, in receipt of a means-tested benefit and with participating vets
If never spayed or neutered, a female dog, her mate, and their puppies could produce over 66,000 dogs in 6 years!
COULD YOU OFFER A HOME TO A RESCUE DOG WHILE WE FIND ITS' FOREVER HOME ?
We are looking for dog-friendly people to join our band of dedicated fosterers to foster our rescue dogs, so that they can learn to live in a home environment instead of kennels. We will always be available for any back up should it be required, and will carry out a home check prior to you fostering the dog.
A sad fact of life is that dogs do go missing from time to time. By having an ID tag on your dog's collar stating your name, address and telephone number, you can save your dog the unnecessary stress of a pound visit. It will also keep you on the right side of the law, as even if your dog is microchipped, your dog is required to wear an ID tag when in a public place. Failure to do so can result in up to a £5,000 fine! Stray dogs can only be picked up by dog wardens, NOT the police or rescues so the first person to contact if you've lost your dog (or if you find a stray dog) is your local dog warden.
Although it is not yet a legal requirement (except as required by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991), it is always a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped with its own unique identification number. This way you can be traced quickly and your dog returned safe and sound.
Under Section 2 of the Control of Dogs Order 2002, every dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate or badge attached to it. Failure to do so is an offence against the Animal Health Act 1981 for which an owner can be prosecuted and fined.
Any dog without a collar on a highway or in a public place may be treated as a stray dog and seized by the Local Authority.
If your dog strays, you should contact your local dog warden (through the Environmental Health Department of your Local Authority) immediately and stay in regular contact. If your dog is found by the Local Authority, you must pay the Local Authority's reasonable expenses before it will be returned to you.
If after seven days, the owner of the stray dog does not come forward, the Local Authority may transfer the dog to someone else, transfer it to an establishment for stray dogs ( or in some areas, have it destroyed ).
If you are the finder of a stray dog you must either return it to its owner immediately or take it to your Local Authority. If you want to keep the stray dog, you must provide your name and address to the Local Authority and keep the dog for a period of not less than one month.
NB. Under Section 27(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to have a dog on a designated road without the dog being on a lead.
