Assembly Member greeted with waggy tails during visit to Dogs Trust Bridgend
Assembly Member for South Wales West, Dr Dai Lloyd AM, visited Dogs Trust Bridgend this week (Monday 29th October) and was greeted by plenty of waggy tails from dogs looking for their forever homes.
Dr Lloyd was given a tour of the rehoming centre and met a number of dogs currently awaiting their forever homes, including Dory, a three-month-old Crossbreed puppy.
Speaking following the visit, Linda Feagan, Dogs Trust Bridgend’s Supporter Relations Officer, said:
“We were delighted to welcome Dai to Dogs Trust Bridgend and it was fantastic to hear his interest in our ongoing campaigns. It was a great opportunity to show him the work we do for the dogs in our care and we were able to discuss our priorities for dog welfare in Wales, particularly our concerns about dog breeding practices and the illegal importation of puppies from Central and Eastern Europe.”
Dr Dai Lloyd AM, commented:
"I really enjoyed my visit to Dogs Trust Bridgend and it was a privilege to see the wonderful efforts of staff at the rehoming centre who work so tirelessly to ensure all unwanted dogs are cared for so well.
“We were also able to discuss the charity’s concerns for the welfare of dogs across Wales which I fully support.”
Up to 80 dogs can be cared for in the rehoming centre at any one time and in the last year Dogs Trust rehomed more than 700 dogs in Wales alone.
