John Barrowman and Captain Jack
The Jack Russell Terrier had been found abandoned recently in a
Cardiff flat and was being cared for by staff at the Dogs Home.
Accompanied by Captain Jack John Barrowman officially opened the four
new kennels at the Dogs Home which have been built to house larger
dogs and mothers with pups.
Councillor Judith Woodman, Cardiff Council Deputy Leader said:
"Cardiff Council is very grateful for the support of John Barrowman
who has visited the Dogs Home to officially open a new kennel block.
The new kennels have been converted from an old derelict building and
were made possible by donations from two kind benefactors who
bequeathed money to the Dogs Home last year."
"Around 1300 abandoned and stray dogs pass through Cardiff Dogs Home
each year. The new kennels will be used to house bigger dogs and for
nursing mothers with pups. The donations have also helped to pay for
the refurbishment of a vet's room so that spaying and castration can
now be carried out on site."
John Barrowman said: "I was pleased to be invited to Cardiff Dogs
Home to support all the good work that it does for abandoned and
stray dogs throughout the city. As a dog owner and Patron of the Dogs
I know how important it is to pass on the message of responsible dog
ownership to all dog owners."
During my visit to the Dogs' Home I fell in love with a 12 week old
Jack Russell Terrier who was recently abandoned in an empty flat in
Cardiff. I have now adopted the little fella 'Captain Jack' as part of our
Precious and rare all Love is, gender matters not.
