“Croeso” to Cardiff! 

A brand-new centre for our four-legged friends   

Earlier this year, our 21st rehoming centre opened in the lush land of Wales, home of dragons, the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllanty-siliogogogoch (yes, that’s a real place), and Corgis. Our Cardiff centre will have the potential to rehome 1,000 dogs a year – a number not to be sniffed at.

Best-in-show facilities

Everything at our Cardiff centre has been designed with dogs in mind, from the fully equipped grooming suite to its 74 kennels, each with underfloor heating so our dogs can keep cosy all year round.

There’s plenty of room to play, with 20 exercise paddocks and a specially landscaped area for practising lead walking. We also have an airy training hall, perfect for teaching dogs of any age new skills and tricks. Dogs Trust Cardiff’s learning amenities also extend to dog owners, with Dog School classrooms on site.

The centre has a range of veterinary facilities, including a physiotherapy and hydrotherapy suite. There's also a specialist puppy rearing suite, with two large puppy kennels and a whelping room for pregnant mums.

Centre Manager Angela says, “We couldn’t be more excited to bring Dogs Trust to Cardiff. We're delighted we can give more dogs the care and attention they need and find their forever homes.”


New digs for Boris

Back in the summer, beloved Sponsor Dog Boris packed up his bags in Bridgend and made the big move to Cardiff. He’s settling into his new home well and is having endless fun playing with his favourite toys – tennis balls!

Watch Boris take us on a tour of his new pad.

Our new centre wouldn’t be complete without some brand new social media accounts to tell all the brilliant stories from our doggy residents.
