TWO Member States in North Wales have seen firsthand how abandoned dogs are enjoying a new life in Flintshire.
Sam Rowlands MS and North Wales Shadow Minister Darren Millar MS recently visited Almost Home Dog Rescue, a small and passionate dog rescue center based in Nercwys, near Mold.
The registered charity’s vision is that all dogs ‘live the good life’, free from cruelty, abuse, neglect or fear and that their physical, social and emotional needs are met.

Following his visit, Mr Rowlands said: “I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit Almost Home and see firsthand the excellent work done by Joan and Dave, who run the house, and their volunteers.
“As a dog owner, I find it very sad to hear that animals have been cruelly treated or, through no fault of their own, abandoned. It was heartening to learn that over the past six years almost 1,000 dogs have been relocated.
“Places like Almost Home do a fantastic job of providing a safe haven for dogs relying solely on grants and donations. They deserve our full support.”
Mr Millar added: ‘I was delighted to learn about the Almost Home Dog house which has been operating successfully in North Wales for the past six years.
“As a rescue dog owner, I was especially interested to hear about how Dave and Joan want to promote responsible ownership and develop an education program for young people, the next generation of dog owners. dogs. That’s a great idea.”
Almost Home Dog Rescue promotes responsible ownership and provides support to foster families and adopters.
They also offer support to appropriate bodies to end unnecessary and needless suffering of dogs but in particular: racing greyhounds, breeding dogs and their puppies and dogs sold online.
