The team at a North Wales animal rescue center is looking for new homes for their furry residents.
North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR) have cats, dogs and some smaller animals, all hoping to find their forever home.
The staff and volunteers at the Trelogan-based charity, in Flintshire, know the animals as individuals, and therefore know what kind of home they are more likely to thrive in.
Whether it’s a dog, cat, rabbit or guinea pig, staff are on hand to advise on the character and suitability of each.

They also make sure potential new owners are aware of the ongoing costs of a pet, including food and vet bills, which can often be for unexpected treatment.
But thankfully there are plenty of responsible, loving people and families looking to give an animal a loving new home.
And there are always animals of all types, ages and needs that will be the perfect match.
Here we meet just some of those at NCAR looking for a new home…
• For more details, please visit ncar.org.uk or if you would like to support the charity without adopting, you can visit their cafe, open from 10.30am to 3.30pm. They also accept donations at the center between 10am and 4pm.
You can also help by fundraising, sponsoring a kennel or supporting one of the NCAR charity shops in the region.
Elvis – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Elvis is a sweet boy who came to the rescue as a stray. He is a collie sized, about one year old and is a friendly guy who loves cuddles. He does n’t seem to have had much input, and as such, he is going to need a lot of training. He is likely to need house training and may suffer with separation anxiety – so would suit a home where he is not left for long periods. He loves other dogs and has been mixed with several at the rescue but he can be quite full on, so it would need to be a dog who would cope with this. He also needs quite a bit of lead work. He has the potential to be a really good dog but he will need a lot of input.
Feti – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Feti is almost two-years-old and he came into care due to allergies within the home. He is a friendly lad but he can be slightly timid until he is comfortable with you, and then he loves attention. He is looking for a home with a good outdoor space for him to explore as he is used to being out and about. He is looking to be the only pet in his next home, and can live with quiet teenagers who will give him space if he needs it.
Bear – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Bear was brought to the rescue with his siblings as they were an unplanned and unsold litter. About five months old, this sweet boy has had very little input and has a lot of training and socialization to catch up on. Due to his age, this will not be easy and anyone wanting to take him on will have to be committed to making up for lost time and train him from scratch in all areas. He is not house trained and this may be a challenge. For this reason, we would suggest older children would be a better fit for him, however, he may be ok with younger, sensible children if that could be managed. He can be quite barky with other dogs but he will mix with them and would probably benefit from living with another calm and confident dog. Out and about on walks his confidence around other dogs would need to be managed. He does have the potential to suffer with anxiety separation. With the right training, Bear has a lot of potential but he certainly won’t be easy in the beginning.
Thor – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Thor came to the rescue after being a stray so we have no history for him. He is a friendly confident lad who loves his food from him. He enjoys being stroked and can be picked up. We are estimating his age as four years. We are looking for a home with no other animals but he could live with teenagers. He needs a garden in a safe area well away from busy or fast roads. Most of all he is looking for a home where he can enjoy the warmth and comforts after living on the streets for sometime.
Toby – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Three-year-old cockerpoo Toby came to the rescue as he has liver shunt. Because of this, we do not know his life expectancy from him. It is currently managed with medication and we would provide lifetime support for this condition. Toby is a cute boy but he does have some challenging behaviours. He suffers with separation anxiety and he will get nippy and show aggression when he gets overly attached to someone and they try to leave him, even just to go into another room. He has been homed but was brought back due to these behaviours. He would need a strict home where he will have very strict boundaries and his own space to try and alleviate these issues. We would guide any potential owner.
Jack and Snowy – at North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR).
• Jack and Snowy are a wonderful pair who are approximately 18-months-old. They were returned to the rescue due to no fault of their own. They are very bonded and are a friendly but independent duo who love to explore and play. They will be happy to live either indoors or outdoors providing they have a safe and secure area with shelter.
