Staff at the RSPCA Bryn Y Maen Animal Centre have launched a special appeal to help find two of its long-term residents their “furever home”. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Both Paddy and Felicity have both sadly been overlooked and it is hoped that staff at the Upper Colwyn Bay site can find their perfect matches. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Felicity is a six-year-old domestic shorthair crossbreed and although she can be wary at first, she is only a few treats away from being your best friend. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She, who is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, would be able to live with a dog and children of older primary school age or above. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Centre manager Vicky Williams said: “Felicity came into our care with a skin allergy, but now it has regrown after a course of treatment. She is now off all medications and is ready to find her forever home. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Our gorgeous girl hasn’t been tested to see if she has any allergies, but is currently being fed on an anallergenic diet to support her. A member of our cattery team will be happy to discuss this with any potential adoptees.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Seven-year-old German Shepherd Paddy came into RSPCA care due to concerns for his welfare. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He is looking for a family where any children are ideally aged 14 years or older. He will need to be the only dog in the home and he cannot live with cats. Watch a video of his training. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Vicky said: “He was initially quite overwhelmed coming into kennels, but like most German Shepherds he found his paws once he formed a bond with his handlers. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“He is now looking for the perfect person or family to show him how good life can be after his neglectful start in life. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Unfortunately Paddy does suffer from a condition called spondylosis which means he’s not looking for hours and hours of exercise. Thankfully he enjoys training games and enrichment which will help to exercise his brain instead.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Vicky added: “We are really hoping to find these two their perfect homes this summer. They both have a few special needs but are truly amazing and are going to make wonderful additions to a family.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

If you can offer Felicity or Paddy the home they deserve please email a completed dog or cat perfect match form to brynymaen@rspca.org.uk. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

With the increase in pet ownership and the cost of living crisis putting a strain on people’s finances, the RSPCA fears it may see more animals coming into its care at a time when rehoming has slowed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
