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 Officer (SRO), Rhiannon Chamberlain, 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!
We are currently looking for Kennel cleaning volunteers who can dedicate one shift or more shifts a week from 8.30-11am cleaning kennels and washing bowls. We are also looking for more event volunteers who can help with our Christmas fate, helping to set up and clear up and be on a stall. If you are interested in finding out more about either of these roles please email Kirsty today!
