4:00pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
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.
* Tess, a six-year-old Collie, is a bundle of energy for her age. She doesn't really enjoy the company of other dogs, but loves the company of people who can give her a load of fuss and love.
* Marley is a two-year-old Staff with three legs who loves to run around and is surprisingly strong and energetic. Marley does not get on well with other dogs.
* Rufus is an 18-month-old crossbreed. He loves to play with people and other animals and roll over and have his tummy tickled!
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
