-Welcome, once again, to Llys Nini...

0:00:190:00:22

-..Wales' largest animal

-rehoming centre near Swansea.

0:00:220:00:26

-This week, we'll look at the work

-of this unique centre...

0:00:260:00:31

-..and meet some of the residents.

0:00:310:00:33

-They include

-this incredibly cute kitten.

0:00:330:00:37

-She was found in a box with two

-other kittens on the roadside...

0:00:380:00:42

-..in Ffostrasol, Ceredigion.

0:00:420:00:45

-The three were in a box

-for a long time...

0:00:450:00:48

-..but the other two didn't survive.

0:00:480:00:51

-Thankfully, this kitten

-is fit and healthy...

0:00:510:00:54

-..and is searching for a new home

-like the other animals here.

0:00:550:01:00

-Let's find out more about the

-incredible work of the centre.

0:01:000:01:04

-The RSPCA Llys Nini Animal Centre is

-situated near Junction 47 of the M4.

0:01:040:01:10

-Gorseinon and the Gower

-are to the south.

0:01:100:01:14

-Swansea is to the east

-and the Lliw Valley is to the west.

0:01:140:01:18

-The heart of the centre is an

-old farmhouse from the Middle Ages.

0:01:180:01:23

-It stands on 80 acres of land...

0:01:230:01:26

-..and is the temporary home

-of many orphan animals.

0:01:260:01:30

-The centre develops

-various habitats...

0:01:300:01:33

-..to encourage wildlife

-across the site.

0:01:340:01:38

-It's all in aid of the animals.

0:01:380:01:41

-Llys Nini is an independent charity

-but is affiliated with the RSPCA.

0:01:420:01:48

-This is one

-of 14 branches in Wales...

0:01:480:01:51

-..of The Royal Society for the

-Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

0:01:520:01:57

-The RSPCA inspectors

-of the South-West Wales region...

0:01:570:02:02

-..are based at Llys Nini.

0:02:020:02:05

-They save animals that have been

-abandoned, neglected or mistreated.

0:02:050:02:11

-Many of them come

-to the Llys Nini Centre.

0:02:110:02:14

-On today's programme...

0:02:160:02:18

-..we attend the parish church

-of Baglan...

0:02:190:02:22

-..to celebrate the lives of animals.

0:02:220:02:25

-It's an opportunity for us to thank

-the animals who keep us company.

0:02:250:02:30

-We meet Zeus the dog.

0:02:300:02:32

-This giant of a dog

-has overcome many obstacles.

0:02:330:02:36

-The naturalist, Iolo Williams

-visits the centre's otter pond.

0:02:370:02:42

-First, Steffan Alun introduces us

-to another resident of Llys Nini.

0:02:430:02:48

-Clive and I are joined by beagles.

0:02:490:02:52

-The eight dogs arrived as puppies

-six months ago...

0:02:520:02:57

-..following a court case.

0:02:570:02:59

-They are ready to be adopted

-so are looking for homes.

0:02:590:03:03

-Many of have already been adopted

-but there's still a few left.

0:03:040:03:09

-These are hunting dogs so they like

-the outdoors and enjoy walking.

0:03:090:03:14

-Some are very shy and

-haven't had the chance to socialize.

0:03:140:03:18

-These dogs need an owner

-who is fit, energetic and patient...

0:03:190:03:24

-..who can give them the training

-and exercise that they require.

0:03:240:03:28

-When adopting a dog, it's important

-to consider all the factors.

0:03:280:03:33

-Do they suit your way of life?

0:03:330:03:35

-For the right owner, these dogs

-will be a lifelong friend.

0:03:350:03:41

-# I'm still holding on

0:03:420:03:46

-# And think back

0:03:490:03:52

-# But I've lost the chance #

0:03:530:03:57

-Next,

-Gemma has the story of a dog...

0:04:020:04:05

-..who is a giant

-in more ways than one!

0:04:060:04:08

-As inspectors, we often come across

-animals who have been mistreated.

0:04:140:04:20

-Zeus, a Dogue de Bordeaux

-was a very serious case.

0:04:220:04:26

-When the inspector found him,

-he had a painful skin condition.

0:04:260:04:32

-His whole body

-was covered in blood blisters.

0:04:320:04:36

-Following an examination...

0:04:360:04:38

-..the vet found that he had many

-other issues with his health.

0:04:380:04:42

-He was both ill and depressed.

0:04:420:04:45

-Many months of attention, care

-and love at the centre in Newport...

0:04:450:04:51

-..transformed both his health

-and personality.

0:04:510:04:55

-Today, Zeus is an important part

-of Carla and Mike's lives.

0:04:560:05:01

-He also helped them

-with a recent bereavement.

0:05:010:05:05

-We found out that my Mum

-had stage four terminal cancer.

0:05:050:05:09

-In the nine months that we've had

-Zeus, my Mum has passed away.

0:05:090:05:13

-Zeus, Mike and I were like

-a little unit, a little family.

0:05:130:05:19

-Zeus has really helped me recover

-from the loss of my Mum.

0:05:190:05:25

-He loves playing with his

-best friend, Hudson the Doberman...

0:05:250:05:30

-..and lives like a king in his new

-home and has a sofa all to himself.

0:05:310:05:35

-This gentle giant has discovered

-his true personality...

0:05:360:05:40

-..despite his early experiences.

0:05:400:05:42

-Every pet owner is responsible

-for the health of that animal.

0:05:430:05:47

-They should ensure

-it's treated for any condition.

0:05:480:05:51

-We never found Zeus'

-previous owners.

0:05:510:05:55

-A few weeks ago, we heard about a

-special nature project at Llys Nini.

0:05:580:06:04

-The aim was to create ponds to

-attract otters and other animals.

0:06:040:06:09

-Recently, a familiar face

-of the nature world...

0:06:090:06:13

-..visited the exciting project.

0:06:130:06:15

-During his visit to the ponds,

-Iolo met the volunteer, Rhiannon...

0:06:160:06:21

-..and the project coordinator,

-Elen Richards.

0:06:220:06:26

-When did the work start?

0:06:300:06:32

-We started digging out the ponds

-in June and July.

0:06:330:06:38

-That took about two weeks...

0:06:380:06:40

-..and it has gathered momentum

-since that time.

0:06:410:06:45

-Why ponds?

0:06:450:06:47

-This is the heart

-of the Lliw Valley...

0:06:470:06:49

-..which is home to many otters.

0:06:490:06:52

-They move around the rivers

-that are in the area...

0:06:520:06:56

-..so it made sense to build

-something that they could use.

0:06:560:07:01

-What's this?

0:07:050:07:07

-The idea is that this is a porch

-that leads into our two dens.

0:07:080:07:12

-One den is on the surface

-and the other is underground.

0:07:120:07:17

-There's a tunnel running

-through to the stream.

0:07:170:07:20

-This has taken a lot of work.

0:07:210:07:23

-Have you seen

-any traces of otters yet?

0:07:230:07:26

-No, but we know they travel

-up and down the stream...

0:07:260:07:30

-..so hope that they come here

-once they have discovered it.

0:07:300:07:35

-It's a great location for otters.

0:07:350:07:38

-There's plenty of water

-and a lot of growth.

0:07:380:07:42

-I imagine this place

-is full of toads and lizards.

0:07:420:07:46

-In the spring,

-the water will be clearer.

0:07:460:07:48

-Plants will start growing and

-will attract all sorts of things.

0:07:490:07:53

-Llys Nini has a duty

-to care for pets...

0:07:550:08:00

-..such as dogs, cats and rabbits...

0:08:000:08:03

-..but they make the effort

-to look after everything.

0:08:030:08:06

-They've done a lot

-of conservation work...

0:08:070:08:10

-..and preserved

-the natural hedgerows.

0:08:100:08:13

-They've created new habitats, ponds

-and planted new trees.

0:08:130:08:18

-They've made a real effort.

0:08:180:08:21

-This is so heart-warming when many

-habitats in Wales are destroyed.

0:08:220:08:26

-I love the contrast

-between this site and the M4.

0:08:270:08:31

-People are rushing around in

-their cars and getting stressed...

0:08:310:08:36

-..but this is a relaxing place

-to take a walk.

0:08:370:08:40

-It's a piece of heaven on earth.

0:08:410:08:43

-The next story

-underlines the importance...

0:08:480:08:52

-..of microchipping a pet...

0:08:520:08:55

-..and the benefits of social media

-when a pet goes missing.

0:08:550:09:01

-Doli the cat and the Davies family

-live on the outskirts of Neath.

0:09:050:09:10

-Doli became an important part

-of their lives...

0:09:100:09:13

-..when they moved to the house.

0:09:130:09:16

-The cat was left

-by the former owners of the house...

0:09:160:09:20

-..and we started feeding her.

0:09:210:09:23

-She came into the kitchen

-and has been here ever since.

0:09:230:09:27

-On this particular evening,

-she went out as usual...

0:09:270:09:31

-..but there was no sign of her

-the next day.

0:09:310:09:34

-We didn't know what had happened.

0:09:340:09:36

-I thought she'd gone

-to another house to be fed.

0:09:370:09:40

-Unfortunately, we discovered that

-she was knocked down by a car...

0:09:410:09:46

-..in a street near our home.

0:09:460:09:49

-Luckily, a neighbour found her

-and called the RSPCA.

0:09:490:09:53

-They took her in and started

-the treatment that she needed.

0:09:540:09:58

-Richard and his parents,

-Sharon and Howard...

0:09:580:10:01

-..were worried about Doli for days.

0:10:020:10:04

-If she was microchipped...

0:10:040:10:06

-..the family would have heard about

-her situation in next to no time.

0:10:060:10:11

-It was a miracle that we found her.

0:10:110:10:14

-Our neighbour called the RSPCA

-and Llys Nini took her in...

0:10:150:10:20

-..and posted her photo

-on their Facebook page.

0:10:200:10:23

-My aunt saw the photo on Facebook.

0:10:240:10:27

-She's only met her twice

-but recognized her straight away.

0:10:270:10:31

-It was luck that we found her

-and could bring her home.

0:10:320:10:35

-Unfortunately,

-Doli lost her leg in the accident...

0:10:350:10:39

-..but she's coping well and

-everyone is happy to see her home.

0:10:390:10:44

-Doli's story shows us

-the importance...

0:10:440:10:48

-..of microchipping our pets.

0:10:480:10:51

-Join us after the break...

0:10:550:10:57

-..as we attend a service that

-celebrates the lives of animals.

0:10:570:11:01

-The radio DJ, Chris Needs

-and his dog, Buster Llyr...

0:11:020:11:06

-..open a shop in Carmarthen.

0:11:060:11:08

-We meet Medi, the Staffy...

0:11:090:11:11

-..and a family of chickens...

0:11:110:11:14

-..who are named after

-the characters of a programme.

-Welcome back.

0:11:350:11:36

-We owe a lot of thanks to our pets

-for their friendship and company.

0:11:360:11:41

-This was the message at a recent

-service that celebrated animals...

0:11:410:11:47

-..at the parish church of Baglan

-near Port Talbot.

0:11:470:11:51

-It's Sunday afternoon

-and those with two and four legs...

0:11:560:12:00

-..flock to Baglan parish church for

-a special service of thanksgiving.

0:12:000:12:06

-We've held services like this

-for many years.

0:12:070:12:11

-It's an opportunity for us to thank

-the animals who keep us company.

0:12:110:12:16

-The whole community should come out

-once a year with their pets...

0:12:170:12:23

-..to give thanks.

0:12:230:12:25

-It's important to celebrate animals

-and those who rescue them.

0:12:250:12:29

-This is important for people

-who do and don't come to church.

0:12:300:12:34

-It opens the arms

-and the doors of the church...

0:12:340:12:38

-..to people

-who wouldn't normally be there.

0:12:380:12:42

-The church is full...

0:12:420:12:44

-..and everyone, especially the

-animals are on their best behaviour.

0:12:440:12:50

-Look at the birds of the air...

0:12:500:12:52

-..they neither sow...

0:12:530:12:55

-..nor reap nor gather into barns...

0:12:550:12:59

-..and yet,

-your Heavenly Father feeds them.

0:12:590:13:03

-We pray especially for those homes

-that are represented here...

0:13:060:13:11

-..and share their homes

-with animals.

0:13:110:13:15

-Care for them

-with your tender loving care.

0:13:150:13:18

-Now comes the part where I often

-lose a finger or two.

0:13:190:13:22

-Let's bless these animals.

0:13:240:13:26

-At the end of the service, Steve

-the vicar blesses all the animals...

0:13:270:13:32

-..and everyone seems to have enjoyed

-the occasion.

0:13:320:13:36

-It was lovely.

0:13:360:13:38

-It was lovely.

-

-I've enjoyed it.

0:13:380:13:39

-The animals behaved themselves,

-were quiet and great.

0:13:400:13:44

-It was my first experience

-and I hope to return next year.

0:13:440:13:48

-There's one more lesson

-from Steve the vicar.

0:13:480:13:52

-The only incident

-we've had at a pet blessing here...

0:13:520:13:56

-..which I've conducted

-for 12 years...

0:13:560:13:59

-..is a stick insect losing a leg

-and it grew back and that's true!

0:13:590:14:04

-That's what I call a miracle.

0:14:040:14:06

-We've already met Arwyn and Sue

-from Rhydargaeau near Carmarthen.

0:14:090:14:14

-Both are regular visitors

-to the Llys Nini charity shops...

0:14:140:14:18

-..and have rescued many animals

-over the years.

0:14:190:14:22

-They are infatuated with animals

-of the feathered and furry variety.

0:14:220:14:28

-Let's go for a walk.

0:14:280:14:29

-We moved here from the town.

0:14:360:14:38

-It had some land

-so we put it to use.

0:14:380:14:42

-We heard about rescue chickens

-and it went from there.

0:14:430:14:47

-We don't eat anything

-that has a face.

0:14:470:14:50

-No, never.

0:14:500:14:52

-They are our family.

0:14:520:14:53

-People don't understand

-that they are real characters.

0:14:540:14:59

-Speaking of characters,

-these feathered queens...

0:15:000:15:04

-..are named after the characters of

-the popular series, Game of Thrones.

0:15:040:15:09

-We have Daenerys and Arya...

0:15:090:15:13

-..who are ex-commercial Warrens

-from Sussex.

0:15:130:15:17

-A message on Facebook said, "Fresh

-start for hens. Homes needed."

0:15:170:15:23

-They were going to be killed.

0:15:230:15:25

-The price of their lives

-was 7p each.

0:15:260:15:30

-They've been reared to die.

0:15:300:15:33

-There's also plenty of fur

-in the house.

0:15:330:15:37

-We like cats too.

0:15:370:15:39

-They go in and out

-as much as they want.

0:15:390:15:42

-Cymro from Llandeilo was our first.

0:15:420:15:46

-He's quite a character.

0:15:460:15:48

-We went on to have another two from

-Cilgerran called Mali and Heini.

0:15:480:15:54

-We just can't say no!

0:15:540:15:57

-If you have the room, try it.

0:15:580:15:59

-I would love to see more people...

0:16:000:16:05

-..adopting chickens and cats.

0:16:050:16:08

-I've come to meet Diesel.

0:16:140:16:16

-He came to Llys Nini following a

-long period of abuse from his owner.

0:16:160:16:21

-When he first came here,

-he had lost most of his coat.

0:16:220:16:26

-Diesel had the longest nails

-an inspector had ever seen.

0:16:270:16:32

-He had also developed lumps

-and underwent many operations.

0:16:320:16:37

-He's currently recovering from

-the surgery with a foster family...

0:16:380:16:43

-..but still needs a permanent home.

0:16:430:16:46

-The animals that do come

-to Llys Nini aren't always perfect.

0:16:460:16:50

-It's difficult to look beyond the

-disabilities but he is recovering.

0:16:510:16:56

-Someone could give this lovely dog

-a comfortable home.

0:16:560:17:01

-Otherwise, he'll remain here.

0:17:010:17:04

-Chris Needs

-is a popular radio presenter.

0:17:250:17:28

-He's also an avid supporter

-of the centre.

0:17:290:17:32

-He recently took his friend,

-Buster Llyr to Carmarthen...

0:17:320:17:37

-..for the opening

-of a new charity shop.

0:17:370:17:40

-Hello, everyone.

0:17:430:17:44

-How are you?

0:17:440:17:46

-Thank you for asking Buster Llyr and

-I to open this store in Carmarthen.

0:17:460:17:52

-CHEERING

0:17:520:17:53

-Thank you!

0:17:530:17:54

-This new shop will help to raise

-more money to help animals...

0:17:550:18:00

-..and will guarantee that they have

-the best possible care.

-It's open!

0:18:050:18:07

-CHEERING

0:18:070:18:09

-I've raised money for Diabetes UK

-and other charities over the years.

0:18:090:18:15

-This year, Buster Llyr and myself...

0:18:150:18:19

-..have decided to raise funds

-for the animals of Llys Nini.

0:18:190:18:24

-Ysgol Nantgaredig is giving

-this new venture a helping hand...

0:18:240:18:29

-..as part of the school's eco

-and recycling campaign.

0:18:290:18:33

-I'm the chairman

-of the school's eco council.

0:18:330:18:37

-We have a vice-chairman,

-secretary and treasurer.

0:18:370:18:42

-We've come to help in the shop.

0:18:420:18:46

-We've donated towels,

-blankets and clothes.

0:18:460:18:50

-This shop is important to me...

0:18:510:18:53

-..as people in our area can donate

-their items to the animals.

0:18:530:18:59

-Animals are very important...

0:18:590:19:03

-..to the people

-who listen to my show.

0:19:030:19:06

-They tell me stories

-about the tricks they do...

0:19:060:19:10

-..ant trips to the vet

-or if they lose any animals.

0:19:100:19:14

-They're important to people.

0:19:140:19:17

-They are companions.

0:19:170:19:19

-I've got a list of animals who are

-living and those who have passed.

0:19:190:19:24

-I want the animals to have

-the same thing as Buster Llyr.

0:19:250:19:29

-He has a nice home, love,

-cwtches, food and bling, bling.

0:19:300:19:35

-Everything!

0:19:350:19:36

-Certain breeds of dog have been

-given bad press in the media.

0:19:410:19:46

-The Staffy is one of those breeds.

0:19:470:19:49

-Medi's story will turn those

-negative attitudes around.

0:19:490:19:53

-We decided to adopt

-as we've done it five times before.

0:19:570:20:02

-We had Mari the Maltese.

0:20:030:20:05

-A Collie.

0:20:050:20:07

-A Greyhound.

0:20:070:20:09

-Alfie the Miniature Schnauzer

-and Medi.

0:20:090:20:13

-We're not the typical couple

-to own a Staffy...

0:20:130:20:17

-..but when we saw her photograph...

0:20:170:20:20

-..she was in such a sorry state

-that we had to give her a chance.

0:20:200:20:25

-Before Medi came to us...

0:20:310:20:33

-..we think that she was locked

-in a bathroom for six months.

0:20:330:20:37

-There were other dogs in the house

-but they didn't get along.

0:20:380:20:42

-The RSPCA inspectors

-had spotted her through a window.

0:20:420:20:47

-They saw her condition

-and insisted on taking her.

0:20:470:20:51

-It was a lot of work.

0:20:510:20:52

-We had to apply her ointment

-every few hours...

0:20:530:20:57

-..and feed her six times a day.

0:20:570:20:59

-She hadn't been trained and we had

-to teach her how to go outside.

0:21:000:21:05

-It was a lot of work

-but she's fantastic.

0:21:060:21:10

-We took her to classes.

0:21:100:21:13

-Yes, we took her to training classes

-and she was fantastic.

0:21:130:21:18

-She's settled in

-and is part of the family.

0:21:180:21:21

-Wherever we go, she comes too.

0:21:210:21:23

-I would never buy a puppy

-from a breeder.

0:21:250:21:28

-People should look into

-rehoming a dog.

0:21:290:21:32

-They appreciate being given

-a second chance in life.

0:21:320:21:37

-You get a lot of love in return.

0:21:370:21:39

-It's hard to believe that we've

-reached the end of the series.

0:21:430:21:47

-We hope that you've enjoyed

-learning about the centre...

0:21:470:21:52

-..and meeting the people and animals

-in our programmes.

0:21:520:21:56

-For more information

-about rehoming animals...

0:21:560:22:00

-..visit our social media pages.

0:22:000:22:02

-The animals who appeared in this

-series will have been rehomed...

0:22:020:22:08

-..but a number of animals are

-still waiting to find a new home...

0:22:080:22:14

-..so head to your local

-animal centre for more information.

0:22:140:22:19

-From me, Steffan Alun...

0:22:190:22:21

-..and me, Elin Fflur

-and everyone at Llys Nini...

0:22:210:22:24

-..the home for animals...

0:22:250:22:26

-Goodbye!

0:22:270:22:28

-Oh...

0:22:330:22:34

-I was going to call you Snowy!

0:22:340:22:36

-What are you doing?

0:22:410:22:42

-We'll meet more of the faces

-of Llys Nini...
