Please note - unlike larger, multi-national charities, we DO NOT send out begging letters, or carry out door-to-door collections to raise our funds. We rely entirely on a small band of unpaid, dedicated volunteers to help in our shop, at local shows & with any in-store collections, & we receive no funding from any government body. We are grateful to members of the public who voluntarily donate through our paypal account, & we also ask for a donation for every animal we rehome. Every last penny of this money goes back into the charity to help our animals. Thank you to every body for your support in the past & hope that you will continue to support us in the future.
MONTY is a 2yr old X-breed boy looking for a home as an only dog and where there will be no cats. Although he is good with children, we would prefer a home with only older children (about 14 +) . His training will need some work as well as his basic recall & we would like an experienced home for Monty, although he is a very loving & people-friendly boy. (Monty has his own pet passport)

CARDIGAN SHOW - SA43 3DR
After battling the wind & rain, we finally managed to get set up, but it was a slow start due to the weather in the morning.
Once the sun came out, everybody had a wonderful time & both Dexter & Lucky really enjoyed meeting all their fans!
We took a total of £87 - so thank you to everyone who turned out to support us.
Very special thanks to Maxine, Yvonne, Belinda & Judith, who managed to battle the weather to get the tent up ( our new gazebo just blew away!).
& a MASSIVE thank you to Anthony for all his hard work in running the tombola & helping to boost our funds.
Our next event is the Nevern show on August 12th - Parc y Ynys, Newport SA42 0NT- so let's hope for better weather & we look forward to seeing you all there.
Our cats & kittens need toys and scratching posts to help them settle in our cattery.
If you have any of these, or any other cat-related items, we would be very grateful.
We also need a rabbit hutch with run. (Our's is past its sell-by date!)
Please let us know by email, phone. or Facebook message
Dogs die in hot cars
Never leave your dog alone in a car on a warm day. If you see a dog in distress in a hot car, dial 999.
Many people still believe that it’s ok to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they’re parked in the shade, but the truth is, it’s still a very dangerous situation for the dog.
A car can become as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn’t feel that warm. When it’s 22 degrees, in a car it can reach an unbearable 47 degrees within the hour.
What to do if you see a dog in a car on a warm day
In an emergency, the RSPCA may not be able to attend quickly enough, and with no powers of entry, they would need police assistance at such an incident.
Don’t be afraid to dial 999, the police will inform the RSPCA if animal welfare assistance is required.
In the UK, if a dog suffers or dies as a result of being left in a hot car, their owner or caregiver can be prosecuted for neglect or cruelty under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
Successful prosecution for neglect or cruelty can lead to jail, fines and being banned from keeping animals in the future.

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.
