RSPCA’s Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre is extending its opening hours for the summer and will now open late once a week (Thursdays) until the end of August.

The Upper Colwyn Bay centre usually closes at 4pm, but for the next few weeks will be remaining open until 7pm every Thursday evening.

Animal centre manager Victoria Williams said: “If people are looking to rehome a rescue animal, this is the perfect time to make enquiries.

“We appreciate that many people are working during our normal hours in the week or are tied up with things in the day, so we wanted to ensure everyone was able to pay us a visit who wanted to this summer.

“Please pop along and come and say hello! We are open between 11am and 4pm – with late night hours on Thursdays until the end of August. The only day we are closed is Wednesdays.”

Among the animals that are looking for their forever homes are dogs Rolo and Ralph.

Rolo 1Rolo, a two-year-old crossbreed, is eagerly awaiting his forever home. He is a friendly and a handsome boy and is very playful.

Rolo was not available for homing for several months when he first came into the charity’s care as staff at another RSPCA centre had to do extensive work with him to help him learn how to be around other dogs due to his previous experiences.

Following some training techniques, Rolo has come on leaps and bounds and he is such an affectionate dog who will make a truly rewarding companion.

While Ralph, another two-year-old crossbreed, is also looking for a perfect home. He arrived at RSPCA care with poor skin as he had a flea allergy back in October. He wasn’t ready for rehoming straight away, but now he is in tip top shape.

Ralph has had five homes before as it wasn’t picked up that the poor boy was actually deaf. When he came into the RSPCA he was checked by a vet, who confirmed he was deaf and has since been fantastic with picking up hand signals and is a very loving and friendly dog. Ralph pic2
