At Dogs Trust Bridgend, we have 40 kennels, and can care for around 80 dogs at any time. We have 2 large enclosed fields, where the dogs can burn some energy and play with some friends during an off-lead run, a training barn, 2 exercise areas filled with fun areas to explore, and on site vet suite.
We have a team of 24 staff, and an excellent group of dedicated volunteers who help with tasks from dog-walking to fundraising. We are located on an old farm site near the village of Pen-y-Fai, surrounded with lots of lovely rural walks for the dogs in our care to enjoy, while they are waiting for their new homes.
Did you know our Supporter Relations Officers (SROs), Linda Feagan and Rhiannon Lavis, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre? She also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. She also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
Our Bridgend centre is 58.5 miles away from Bristol. It takes around an hour in the car, via the M4.
The Welsh Government has announced that a short, sharp firebreak lockdown will take place in Wales from Friday 23rd October until Monday 9th November. In order to adhere to new restrictions, our rehoming centre in Bridgend will be closed for appointments from 6.00pm on Friday 23rd October and resume again from Monday 9th November. During the lockdown period we will still be able to match some dogs with families virtually and deliver them to their new homes contact-free.
