Rescue details

We rescue animals of all types, some waiting destruction in Welsh pounds others handed in to us for whatever reason, good or bad. We provide medial care, food, shelter and love for them all and ultimately find them loving homes. if for any reason things don't work out we always take them back. We inoculate and worm all our animals and ensure they receive any medical treatment they may require. We also neuter as many of our animals as possible, new owners of any un-neutered animals are bond by agreement to carry out this vital task at the earliest opportunity. Every eligible dog, cat or rabbit leaves our Rescue Centre with 6 weeks free insurance from a leading company, new owners are then given an opportunity to extend such cover by subscribing to the scheme. Our staff are always available to give advise on training or behavioural questions and are there to assist if needed.

We operate a non-destruction policy.


LAST CHANCE ANIMAL RESCUE CENTRE was founded in 1986, its aim being to rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned animals. We take in all creatures, from cats and dogs to equines, livestock and wildlife. Our kennels are constantly filled from two main sources: local rescue dogs, and the Welsh 'pound dogs' saved from their death row sentence. For many it truly is their Last Chance.

Our Services

Our Veterinary surgeon checks, worms, and inoculates all animals, (we also indentichip all our dogs- cats can be identichipped at a minimal cost), and operate a rigorous neutering policy, as we strongly believe this makes a happier pet and is the most important way to reduce the escalating problem of pet overpopulation. We have a non-destruction policy, except on humane grounds, and a system of individual home checks before any animal is placed into a new home, along with follow up visits to ensure the animal has settled. All our animals leave us with six weeks free insurance cover, and we do encourage new owners to consider either extending the existing cover or taking out an policy of their choice. Our adopters sign a legal document declaring to give the best possible care, and to ensure that the animal is neutered at the earliest opportunity if this has not already been carried out, we always take back any former resident if the adopter is unable to keep it, thus ensuring future security for any animal entering Last Chance. As we are totally reliant on public support and do not receive and other funding, we do ask for a donation for our animals to enable us to continue caring for the next animal that arrives at our door. Please contact us for more information if you require it.

This is our Truda,

Truda is our special dog, she is our meeting and greeting girl. All our new dogs and some cats meet and spend time with our girl. She is good with all dogs, but not afraid to tell them off, and put them in their place, she’s not aggressive, just good at body language.


This is Truda write up from her previous owner.

Truda was born February 2000 we celebrate her birthday on the 20th of February. We buy her presents and a small cake for her birthday.

Truda loves to play with her toys, balls are her favourite! She loves fetch, but doesn’t always let you have the ball back.

It’s best to have two or more, she will let you have it if you say OUT! And sit. Depends what mood she is in whether she will let you have the ball back.

She also love the toys that have a ball on the end of a bit of rope, because she loves to play tug of war and she nearly always wins as well. She loves squeaky toys, but they won’t squeak for long.

She loves plastic fizzy drink bottles (empty of course, the big ones) she gets the lid off first then squashes flat. Handy for recycling. She also loves bubbles, blowing bubbles is a favourite game she loves to try and catch them. Also loves snow, trying to catch snow balls is a good game that she likes. When it snows.

She loves water, hose pip, paddling pool. Difficult to water the garden when she is around! She loves play in a paddling pool but she will tear the bottom if you don’t watch her.

She had training, she will sit, shake hands, lay down, fetch, and stay. She is not too good walking on the lead, she pulls. But off the least she is great, she will never walk too far from where you are and is always looking to see where your are and wait for you if your are bit slow. She comes back when called to put her lead back. Just say come! She has never run off.

She steals sweets! She loves chocolate!

If left lying about she will find and eat! She will eat vegetables, cereals, weetabix, Ready break, toast, and she likes to drink tea. Basically, if you have any food left over at dinner she’ll usually finish it off for you.

Whenever you’ve got food it won’t be long before Truda is there, sitting in front of you and giving you her puppy eyes. So when feeding her from your hand you should always say “Nicely” first otherwise she might take the food roughly and accidentally nip your fingers at the same time.

And you should always tell her she’s a good girl, when she does something right (example, sits when you tell her to) and usually a forcefully spoken “No” will stop her from doing anything she shouldn’t be doing.

She drinks most things, watch your cups and glasses! If left unattended, she will help herself. She will eat most things as well (She doesn’t like stuffing). She does eat cat and dog food as well as main meal, tinned food with mixed biscuits or complete dog food.

She is toilet trained, right from a puppy, was very from the start and still is.

She is very loving and protective of her family, although she is not good with people she doesn’t know! Or see a lot. I usually put her in the kitchen if we have visitors we don’t see often.

She doesn’t like lots of people crowding around her and stroking her, she gets scared and will nip.

She has lived with 2 cats she would love to play with them, but they are not interested. She does get jealous if you talk to other animals, she likes all the attention. She is a big baby.

She is very loving and playful still acts like a puppy on occasion.

My nick name for her is puppy or pup, yes I have spolit her, but she deserves to be, as she was rescued and about 5 weeks old. She has never been a whinny dog or one that cries even as a puppy. She has not bee allowed in bedrooms or sleep on human beds. She likes her own bed or floor (sofa in allowed) Basically she was a very good puppy and behaved very well, quickly toilet trained always went on the newspaper or outside.

She is not afraid of fireworks or loud noises. Beware when doing DIY as she is very nosey, not afraid of drills, saws ETC. She will got up to them.

Truda is up to date with her vaccinations, received flea and worming treatment, is micro chipped, spayed and adopted with six weeks free insurance.
