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.
* Patch, a husky cross, is two, and came to the kennels as his owner was too ill to care for him. He has been in the kennels for about 15 months and would love to find a new family. Patch used to bring his previous owner his slippers every night and can sit and shake hands. He is friendly and affectionate.
* Boswell, a five-year-old lurcher, loves the company of other dogs. He is shy with people at first but when he gets to know them is very affectionate and loves long walks.
* Jess, a husky cross, is two and gets on well with other dogs. She is very affectionate and loves to play with her toys and with the carers 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
