There’s a lot of love this St Dwynwen’s Day – in particular for two brothers who adore each other and two cats who are also inseparable.

Coco and Snoop are nine-year-old Labrador crossbreeds at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre, who have spent their whole lives together and can’t bear to be apart. While black cats Cariad and Cwtch are at RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre and are usually found all cosy and cuddled up together.

Staff at the animal centres are hoping this St Dwynwen’s Day – Dydd Santes Dwynwen – will inspire loving new owners to offer them the perfect forever home.

Coco and Snoop NAC rehoming Jan19 pic1Rachel O’Hagan, animal care assistant at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre, said: “Coco and Snoop are the perfect pair and will make lovely pets. Sadly they came into our care after their owner was taken ill and we are now looking for their forever home – together – as they truly love each other.

“They are both very loving together and playful and both love human company. They love running off the lead in our paddock area and are very active.

“They require a home that will keep them active as they love to play with their toys and run around on their walks. They could be rehomed with children and possibly with a confident cat or another dog.

“They also need to find someone to help them continue on their weight loss journey as they have a few pounds to lose. Ultimately they just need love from an owner who can give them the care and attention they need.”

Three-year-old black cats Cwtch and Cariad are hoping for a new loving home this St Dwynwen’s Day.

Chris Butler, animal centre supervisor from RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, said: “Cariad is the more confident of the pair and will come straight up to you for fuss and attention. While Cwtch will hang back until she can see that Cariad is comfortable and only then will Cwtch come up for fuss as well.

Cwtch rehoming BYM Jan19“They are both loving and affectionate and really enjoy attention although they do require a gentle approach as they can be a tad shy initially. Once fully settled, these girls would like access to the great outdoors. They truly have so much to offer and will make such loving and rewarding additions to the right home.”
