Friends was established in 2011 thanks to the goodwill and dedication of the staff and volunteers at Cardiff Dogs Home.
Our main constitutional aims are to promote the dogs for re-homing and fundraising to provide state of the art kennelling facilities for the homeless stray and abandoned dogs in our community.
With hundreds of dogs passing through council pounds and dog rescues every year, their paws really are in our hands as they embark on their journey of finding a new home. We are there to provide extra care and enrichment to make their journey a less stressful one and help them along their way. We promote and champion the dogs to give them the best chance of finding their forever home as quickly as possible.
We work with Cardiff Dogs Home, local rescues and other animal welfare charities to promote the wellbeing of the dogs in their care and raise public awareness. We also fundraise to help improve the facilities for the dogs while they wait to be re-homed.
Alongside our long term aims to modernise the kennels, we have developed an innovative and ambitious Kennel & Environment Enrichment Program to improve and enhance the welfare and wellbeing of the resident dogs whilst they are waiting to be re-homed.
We have a strong focus on community inclusion, and welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities.
