Suzy Davies AM to open new cat centre in Cardiff

The new centre, located in the Pets at Home store in Newport Road, will have three custom-built cat pens, housing up to six cats. It will be run by Cats Protection staff and will focus on finding homes for cats that are ready to go to a new home.

Cats Protection’s Regional Centre Operations Manager Sadie Dalton said: “This is the second Cats Protection Homing and Information Centre based in a Pets at Home store – the first opened in Newbury, Berkshire in 2014 - and is one of the ways that we home cats in areas of high footfall. We are looking forward to helping many local people find their perfect feline in the future.”

Suzy Davies AM, commented: “I was so pleased to hear that Cats Protection was opening a new Homing and Information Centre in Cardiff. I found my own gorgeous cat at the Bridgend Adoption Centre where the staff are so caring and committed. Animal welfare is a central concern for Cats Protection and their advice and experience are invaluable to anyone ready to offer a home to a cat, ensuring a good match between every cat and their new human.”

The new centre will be managed by the Cats Protection Adoption Centre in Bridgendand staff will be on hand from 10am – 4pm, apart from Wednesday 10am – 6pm, and Sunday 10.30am – 4pm, to talk about the adoption process and to give out free cat care guides.

Sue Dobbs, Bridgend Adoption Centre Manager, added: “We are very excited about the opening of the new centre and our team at Bridgend is really looking forward to rehoming even more cats in the Cardiff area. There are many benefits to adopting from us, including the peace of mind of knowing your new cat has been examined by a veterinary surgeon. In addition, they have been microchipped, vaccinated, neutered if old enough and will have four weeks’ free insurance.”
