Mp Visit

MP greeted with waggy tails during visit to Dogs Trust Bridgend

Member of Parliament for Caerphilly, Wayne David, visited Dogs Trust Bridgend last week (Friday 13th March) and was greeted by plenty of waggy tails from dogs looking for new owners.

Mr David was given a tour of the Pen-y-Fai rehoming centre, and met a number of dogs currently awaiting their forever homes, including two-year-old Lurcher Joey.

Following the visit, Dogs Trust Campaigns Manager for Wales, Rachel Burr, said:

“We were delighted to welcome Wayne to our rehoming centre to show him the work we do for the dogs in our care. Like all of us at Dogs Trust Bridgend, it is wonderful that Wayne also cares so deeply about animal welfare and it was a fantastic opportunity to catch up on key dog welfare issues that we feel so strongly about, including puppy buying and dog breeding in Wales and electric shock collars.”

Wayne David MP, commented: 

“I really enjoyed visiting Dogs Trust Bridgend, and it is fantastic to see how hard the staff work to ensure that all of the dogs in their care are incredibly well looked after. I was impressed by the passion and enthusiasm that Dogs Trust staff have for the well-being of their canine residents and the way they go above and beyond to rehome so many unwanted dogs across Wales.”
