Shop Volunteers Visit NCAR

Shop Volunteers in the Cat Unit
On Sunday 29th July the some of our Shop Volunteers and Managers visited NCAR to see at first hand what goes on at the Rescue. These volunteers make a huge difference to the Charity by manning the Shops we have across towns in North Wales including Abergele,Colwyn Bay, Connahs Quay, Denbigh (where we have 2 shops), Mold and Prestatyn. Many of those visiting had never been to the Rescue before so it was an ideal time to see what all their hard work actually supports.
Visiting the Stray Dog Block

Some were picked up, some made their own way but  all arrived in time for drinks and buffet. They were then shown the induction course we run for new volunteers at the rescue and introduced to Anne Owen, the founder and General Manager of NCAR and Jean Sellers the current Chair Lady as well as other key members of staff.

Following the presentation they were taken on a guided tour of the rescue, visiting the Cat and Kitten Units, the Kennels, Stray Block and new rabbit unit 'Belle's Burrow'. Following the tour of the rescue many took dogs for a walk in the lovely sunshine we enjoyed on the day.

It was a great day with everyone appearing to enjoy the experience and many positive comments from the volunteers saying how proud they were to be supporting such a fantastic cause.

The day came to an end with a group photograph.
