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.
* Buster, a Jack Russell Terrier, is about a year old and gets very excited when meeting new people. He sometimes gets on with other dogs and cats but doesn't like to share a kennel.
* Boyo, a 12-month-old Collie, seems to get on with cats that are around the kennels but does not get along with the other dogs.
* Jess is a six-year-old Czechoslovakian Wolfdog. She seems to get along well with other dogs at the kennels.
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
