IT’S NOT always a dog’s life for our four-legged friends as you can see.
Generous workers from the Buyology discount store on Maesglas Estate in Newport gave a trolley-load of treats to pets staying at a Cwmbran animal sanctuary on Friday.
One of the guests at the All Creatures Great & Small shelter, Linford, rode a wave of excitement as he was presented the food and toys outside the store off Greenwich Road.
Buyology deputy manager Cheryl Walker, 40, said: “I’m friends with volunteers who work there. It’s a fantastic cause, they do such good work.”
And there was an even bigger surprise for Linford the lurcher who got rehomed on Sunday [September 22] after months staying at the sanctuary.
Shelter social programmes manager Matt Nichols, 25, said: “We are very grateful for any support from organisations and members of the public.
“Without these types of donations we wouldn’t be able to function as it costs us £200,000 a year to run the sanctuary.”
