Rescue dogs

Llys Nini’s mission to help rescue dogs gain confidence

When Sheba arrived at the Llys Nini branch of the RSPCA she was emaciated, unloved and unaccustomed to playing in open spaces.

Today she is fit, healthy and enjoying every moment in her new forever home.

“When Sheba came here, she would have greatly benefited from a warm and safe undercover area where she could build her strength and confidence and relearn how to love and trust people,” said Sally Hyman, president of Llys Nini.

“Luckily, Sheba has happily found her forever home, but we have so many other Sheba who need our help.”

To achieve this goal, Llys Nini plans to build an indoor dog park, allowing the rescue dogs in their care to spend time outside the kennels in a safe indoor space.

“It will be so important because many dogs come from difficult circumstances where they have been kept in a confined space and cannot walk with a collar and leash.

“It’s hard to get them used to these things in our wet woods and fields, so an indoor building will be a great asset.”

The new building will cost around £100,000 and will sit above the existing dog enclosure.

To help the RSPCA achieve its goal, a justgiving page has been set up and donations can be made at
