Residents in central Cardiff have been invited to help give animals a voice and support RSPCA Cymru campaigns at the upcoming Cathays Fair.

The charity will be in attendance at the event on Sunday 2 March, between 2pm and 5pm – showcasing many of their animal welfare campaigns.

RSPCA Cymru will join local businesses, faith groups, schools, voluntary groups and others at the community event.

The event is hosted by Cathays Compass, and takes place on the pedestrianised area in Pentyrch Street, by St Monica’s Church in Wales Primary School.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to back key animal welfare campaigns, learn about the RSPCA’s work, and discuss opportunities to become Campaign Volunteers to help support animals across Wales.

Charlie Skinner, RSPCA Cymru campaigns assistant, said:

“We’re really excited to be at this event, and to chat to members of the public about our work in Wales.

“From introducing an Offender Register, to banning the use of wild animals in circuses, we’re campaigning on so many issues to make the lives of animals better.

 “The Animal Welfare Act has just celebrated its tenth anniversary – and we’re focussing on what can happen over the next ten years to further improve welfare standards, and help ensure all animals across the country are respected and treated with compassion.

 “We’d love to chat to as many local people as possible, and discuss ways they can get involved and help us in giving animals a voice – in Cardiff, across Wales, and beyond.”
