THE Barry & District News and Penarth Times have joined forces with the Vale of Glamorgan Dog Warden Service to publicise the work of the area's kennels - and to find homes for some of its residents.
Bongo is a two-year-old a crossbreed who enjoys playing. He can sit and give his paw and loves getting treats from the staff at the kennels. Bongo does not get on well with other dogs.
Nelly, a two-year-old husky, gets quite excited when meeting people but then calms down. She enjoys the company of other dogs.
Tipsy is an eight-year-old mature staff who loves long walks. Tipsy gets on really well with other dogs and shares a pen and even a bed with another dog.
Croft Kennels at Bridgend is where the Vale's stray and unwanted dogs are cared for.
The purpose-built kennels in Coity become the temporary home for all dogs picked up by the Vale of Glamorgan Council 's Dog Wardens, until they are reunited with their families or adopted by new ones.
The Vale Council's Dog Wardens stress that adopting a dog is a big commitment and they are always happy to offer advice to anyone considering giving a dog a home.
The kennels are open between 11am and 6pm seven days a week, and anyone wishing to adopt a dog can contact: Croft Rescue Kennels, Waun Davey House, Heol Llan, Coity, Bridgend CF35 6BU; tel (01656) 862288; website: www.croftrescuekennels.com
