Improvements at North Wales RSPCA centre praised

Darren Millar, Welsh Conservative AM for Clwyd West, has praised an RSPCA animal centre in his constituency following a recent visit.

Darren spent last Friday visiting Bryn-y-Maen, the RSPCA’s animal centre near Colwyn Bay, and was pleased to see the improvements being made to facilities there.

The Centre provides specialist care for domestic and farm animals, and staff often look after injured wildlife before it's released or transferred to one of the RSPCA's four dedicated wildlife centres.

Darren said:

“I visited the Centre last week to hear more about the RSPCA’s campaigning and to see the improvements being made to facilities there, which includes the construction of new building to provide more meeting, training and storage facilities for the Centre.

"Bryn-y-Maen does a great deal of hard work to promote animal welfare. In 2016 it rehomed 90 dogs, 245 cats, 35 rabbits and 83 other animals – a total of 453 animals in just one year.

“The dedication of the staff and volunteers at Bryn-Maen is second to none and I would like to thank them all for the tremendous work they do.”

It costs the RSPCA over £1,300 a day to run Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre which relies entirely on donations from the public. To find out what you can do to help visit the Bryn-y-Maen website
