-Hello, I'm Elin Fflur...

0:00:190:00:21

-..and I'm at Llys Nini, an RSPCA

-pet rescue and rehoming centre...

0:00:210:00:27

-..at Penllergaer near Swansea.

0:00:270:00:29

-They save, care and rehome

-all kinds of orphaned animals.

0:00:300:00:35

-Stay tuned if you're anything

-like me and you love animals.

0:00:360:00:40

-The RSPCA Llys Nini Animal Centre is

-situated near Junction 47 of the M4.

0:00:410:00:47

-Gorseinon and the Gower

-are to the south.

0:00:470:00:50

-Swansea is to the east

-and the Lliw Valley is to the west.

0:00:510:00:54

-The heart of the centre is an

-old farmhouse from the Middle Ages.

0:00:550:01:00

-It stands on 80 acres of land...

0:01:000:01:02

-..and is the temporary home

-of many orphan animals.

0:01:030:01:06

-The centre develops

-various habitats...

0:01:070:01:10

-..to encourage wildlife

-across the site.

0:01:100:01:14

-It's all in aid of the animals.

0:01:150:01:18

-Llys Nini is an independent charity

-but is affiliated with the RSPCA.

0:01:180:01:24

-This is one

-of 14 branches in Wales...

0:01:250:01:28

-..of The Royal Society for the

-Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

0:01:280:01:33

-The RSPCA inspectors

-of the South-West Wales region...

0:01:340:01:38

-..are located at Llys Nini.

0:01:390:01:41

-They save animals that have been

-abandoned, neglected or mistreated.

0:01:410:01:47

-Many of them come

-to the Llys Nini Centre.

0:01:470:01:51

-This is what we have for you today.

0:01:530:01:56

-We meet Paddy the Terrier.

0:01:560:01:58

-I learn about dog walking...

0:01:580:02:01

-..and we join the rugby legend,

-Rowland Phillips...

0:02:010:02:05

-..who meets the competitive entrants

-at a Neath dog show.

0:02:060:02:10

-I've brought Elvis here.

0:02:100:02:12

-I came second

-in the Best Handler event.

0:02:130:02:15

-We've raised money for Llys Nini.

0:02:160:02:19

-First, we join the friend

-of these animals.

0:02:190:02:22

-It's Steffan Alun, our funny man

-who loves being in the cattery.

0:02:220:02:28

-I'm Steffan,

-a friend of the animals!

0:02:320:02:34

-An important part of finding a new

-life for some of these animals...

0:02:350:02:40

-..is teaching them to socialize as

-part of the Cuddle a Cat campaign.

0:02:410:02:45

-This is Dora.

0:02:460:02:47

-She's nervous...

0:02:470:02:49

-..and needs some love to get used

-to being around people again.

0:02:490:02:53

-She's eight years old.

0:02:530:02:55

-She had a home

-until two years ago...

0:02:550:02:59

-..when her family had a new baby.

0:02:590:03:01

-Babies are very noisy.

0:03:010:03:04

-They cause stress for everyone,

-including Dora's family.

0:03:050:03:09

-Dora disappeared

-and wasn't seen for a long time.

0:03:090:03:13

-She returned but the house

-was unsuitable for her...

0:03:130:03:16

-..so Llys Nini wants to rehome her.

0:03:160:03:19

-Children are fine as long as they

-are over ten years old and quieter.

0:03:190:03:24

-That's the theory anyway!

0:03:240:03:26

-Cats like Dora benefit

-from socializing and being cuddled.

0:03:260:03:31

-Volunteers of all backgrounds

-and abilities come to cuddle a cat.

0:03:310:03:37

-Cuddling a cat is beneficial

-to the animal as well as the person.

0:03:370:03:43

-I'm Gwenllian

-and Emma is my daughter.

0:03:430:03:46

-We come here every Monday.

0:03:460:03:48

-Ems loves cats.

0:03:480:03:50

-We come here so that she can sit

-and socialize with them.

0:03:500:03:54

-It's important for the cats too.

0:03:540:03:57

-The Llys Nini Centre has a lot

-of full-time and part-time staff...

0:04:100:04:15

-..but they need assistance

-from time to time...

0:04:150:04:18

-..from a team

-of experienced volunteers.

0:04:180:04:22

-Rhiannon has been a volunteer here

-for a while.

0:04:230:04:26

-Yes, I've been coming here

-for almost five years.

0:04:260:04:30

-It's great and I really enjoy

-being a volunteer here.

0:04:300:04:35

-What are your duties?

0:04:350:04:37

-I'm a wildlife specialist...

0:04:370:04:39

-..so I do a few things in that field

-on this site.

0:04:400:04:43

-I also do one of the most important

-tasks which is dog walking.

0:04:430:04:47

-There's up to 70 dogs here

-every day of the year...

0:04:480:04:52

-..and they all need to be walked

-twice a day...

0:04:520:04:56

-..so they need a team of staff

-and volunteers to do that.

0:04:560:05:00

-Dog walking

-has become a profession for you.

0:05:000:05:04

-I've been coming here so often that

-I started a dog walking business.

0:05:040:05:09

-You're an expert and I'm wearing my

-orange wellies so let's walk a dog.

0:05:090:05:15

-It isn't that simple.

0:05:160:05:17

-You can't turn up and walk a dog

-as you need to do a course first.

0:05:170:05:21

-I'm looking forward to hearing more

-about this course on dog walking!

0:05:220:05:26

-Rhiannon and I

-head to the main building...

0:05:270:05:30

-..whilst Clive,

-who works at Llys Nini...

0:05:310:05:34

-..is with a dog

-in an exercise paddock.

0:05:350:05:37

-Dogs like this one, are very strong.

0:05:380:05:41

-They need a lot of exercise

-every day.

0:05:420:05:46

-They are locked up all day so need

-exercise every morning and night.

0:05:460:05:51

-We just want the dog to be happy...

0:05:510:05:54

-..to enjoy a walk and have a cuddle

-and that's all year round.

0:05:540:05:59

-We don't get volunteers here

-every day.

0:05:590:06:02

-We get a lot of people

-in the summer...

0:06:020:06:05

-..but we're short-staffed in

-the winter so we take the dogs out.

0:06:050:06:10

-Dog walking is one of the most

-important tasks of these centres.

0:06:110:06:16

-It's an easy activity

-for a volunteer...

0:06:160:06:19

-..especially if you know

-how to walk a dog properly.

0:06:190:06:23

-Tell me more about this course

-on dog walking, Rhiannon.

0:06:260:06:31

-Why does a person need

-to take a course on walking a dog?

0:06:310:06:34

-We follow a process at Llys Nini...

0:06:350:06:38

-..to ensure the safety

-of each person and each dog.

0:06:390:06:43

-We start with the signs that you'll

-see on each cage in the kennels.

0:06:430:06:48

-All the cages are colour-coded.

0:06:490:06:52

-Dogs with a green sign...

0:06:530:06:55

-..are well-behaved

-and relatively easy to walk...

0:06:550:07:01

-..and don't pull on the lead.

0:07:010:07:03

-Anyone who has had the training

-or any member of staff...

0:07:040:07:08

-..can walk a dog with a green sign.

0:07:080:07:10

-The amber or red sign is for a dog

-who is nervous or pulls on the lead.

0:07:110:07:16

-You need extra training to walk

-a dog who has this coloured sign.

0:07:160:07:22

-There's also dogs who have

-a black sign on their cage.

0:07:220:07:26

-They should only be walked by staff.

0:07:270:07:29

-This could be due to

-behavioural issues...

0:07:290:07:32

-..or they have an illness

-of some kind.

0:07:330:07:36

-You should use common sense too.

0:07:360:07:39

-Can you recognize a

-dog's temperament by looking at it?

0:07:390:07:45

-Yes, let me show you.

0:07:450:07:48

-You can analyze

-a dog's temperament...

0:07:480:07:51

-..from its physical behaviour.

0:07:520:07:54

-This helps the walker when walking

-a dog that's new to the centre.

0:07:550:08:00

-Cats don't enjoy

-being taken for a walk.

0:08:040:08:07

-They are independent

-and inquisitive.

0:08:070:08:10

-Many cats are brought to Llys Nini

-and other centres...

0:08:100:08:14

-..after getting lost

-so they are stray cats.

0:08:150:08:19

-Cats disappear

-for a number of reasons.

0:08:190:08:23

-I've heard of some cats climbing

-into the back of cars and vans.

0:08:230:08:28

-This is Angel.

0:08:290:08:31

-She came in as a stray cat.

0:08:310:08:34

-Angel is twelve years old.

0:08:340:08:36

-It's difficult to rehome older cats.

0:08:360:08:39

-Most people prefer kittens and it's

-a shame because she's a lovely cat.

0:08:390:08:44

-I'm sure someone

-has a home for Angel.

0:08:450:08:48

-Next, we meet Gemma.

0:08:480:08:50

-Paddy the Terrier was rescued

-from the Aberystwyth area.

0:08:590:09:03

-He was badly injured when brought to

-the attention of an RSPCA inspector.

0:09:050:09:10

-We believe the injury had been

-caused a few days earlier...

0:09:100:09:14

-..after a fight between the dog

-and a wild animal.

0:09:140:09:18

-The owners hadn't taken the Terrier

-to the vet.

0:09:180:09:21

-His nose and face were badly torn...

0:09:220:09:25

-..and he was obviously

-in a lot of pain.

0:09:250:09:29

-The owner had photographs

-on his mobile phone...

0:09:290:09:32

-..showing the dog

-at the opening of a badger sett...

0:09:320:09:36

-..with the badger in the background.

0:09:360:09:39

-Fortunately, Paddy recovered

-from his injuries.

0:09:390:09:42

-Other dogs who are used for illegal

-badger baiting are not so lucky.

0:09:420:09:48

-His owner was banned from

-keeping animals for five years...

0:09:480:09:53

-..paid costs of 2,500...

0:09:530:09:56

-..and sentenced to 240 hours

-of unpaid work in the community.

0:09:560:10:02

-Paddy was brought to Llys Nini

-to recover.

0:10:020:10:05

-He was rehomed and is very happy.

0:10:060:10:09

-Our thanks to Carys for letting us

-meet Paddy in his new home.

0:10:090:10:14

-After the break,

-we meet Winston the pig...

0:10:170:10:20

-..learn about

-the centre's projects...

0:10:210:10:23

-..meet Harry the cat and attend

-a dog show with Rowland Phillips.

0:10:240:10:29

-First, Rhiannon and I are taking

-a walk with some special guests.

0:10:300:10:34

-Yes, Flossy and Myfanwy

-are coming with us.

0:10:350:10:38

-Let's go!

0:10:380:10:40

-This is going to be fun.

-Welcome back.

0:11:040:11:05

-Rhiannon, myself and the dogs

-are enjoying our walk.

0:11:060:11:09

-As you can see, we've left

-the main buildings of the centre...

0:11:100:11:14

-..and come to the land

-around Llys Nini.

0:11:140:11:17

-The site was originally a farm...

0:11:170:11:19

-..and the trails cross

-the meadows and marshland.

0:11:190:11:23

-The centre is home to many pets

-but also some wild animals.

0:11:230:11:28

-The site has some exciting

-environmental developments.

0:11:280:11:33

-Let's hear from Elanor Alun, the

-environmental manager at Llys Nini.

0:11:330:11:38

-I'm the conservation manager

-at the site...

0:11:440:11:48

-..so I manage the area

-and aim to improve the wildlife.

0:11:480:11:52

-I also try to encourage people from

-the local community to visit us.

0:11:520:11:57

-We have our trails,

-various events...

0:11:570:12:00

-..and opportunities for volunteers.

0:12:010:12:03

-The site covers 78 acres in total...

0:12:040:12:06

-..that includes a forest

-with an ancient tree...

0:12:060:12:10

-..pastures, wetlands,

-pools and streams.

0:12:100:12:14

-There's a lot of water

-so we're almost swimming!

0:12:140:12:17

-The site was a working farm

-for many centuries...

0:12:180:12:21

-..until the early 1990s.

0:12:210:12:23

-They also mined for coal

-in some of the fields.

0:12:230:12:28

-When the animal centre

-was opened here in 1997...

0:12:280:12:33

-..the site was in

-a poor condition...

0:12:340:12:36

-..apart from a few fields that were

-rented by a farmer to keep cattle.

0:12:360:12:42

-But this site was awash

-with various habitats.

0:12:420:12:46

-It attracted a lot of birds

-and other wildlife.

0:12:470:12:50

-The site was originally

-part of the Land in Care Scheme...

0:12:570:13:01

-..but it has just finished.

0:13:010:13:03

-In 2015, Llys Nini received a grant

-from the National Lottery...

0:13:030:13:09

-..and Natural Resources Wales

-amounting to 220,000...

0:13:090:13:13

-..for an environmental project.

0:13:140:13:16

-We now have trails through the site.

0:13:160:13:19

-There are nature trails,

-heritage trails about Llys Nini...

0:13:200:13:25

-..and special trails

-for the monthly events.

0:13:250:13:28

-The trails are open to the public...

0:13:290:13:31

-..and the centre uses them to walk

-the dogs that are in their care.

0:13:320:13:37

-This is Tiger

-and we think that he's an Akita.

0:13:440:13:47

-Tiger came from a home

-where the owner had too many dogs.

0:13:480:13:51

-There's nothing wrong with him

-and he's so gentle.

0:13:510:13:55

-But the Akita is such an usual

-and specific breed...

0:13:550:13:59

-..that his new owner needs to be

-someone who knows this breed.

0:13:590:14:04

-He's a strong dog

-who needs a lot of exercise.

0:14:040:14:08

-We need someone

-who has experience of this breed.

0:14:080:14:12

-When adopting a dog...

0:14:130:14:14

-..think about whether the breed

-suits your home and way of life.

0:14:150:14:19

-The Akita is originally

-a Japanese hunting dog.

0:14:190:14:23

-There's also an American version.

0:14:230:14:26

-They are faithful dogs

-who need a lot of exercise.

0:14:260:14:29

-You'd be expected to walk them

-for at least two hours a day.

0:14:300:14:34

-We can put our feet up after

-walking along the glorious trails.

0:14:350:14:40

-The dogs can also

-take the opportunity to relax.

0:14:400:14:43

-Tell us about your experience.

0:14:430:14:46

-You adopted these two

-from Llys Nini.

0:14:460:14:48

-People say it's beneficial

-but what was it like?

0:14:480:14:52

-It's been

-a very positive experience.

0:14:520:14:55

-Giving two dogs a second chance

-at life has been great.

0:14:550:14:59

-I've loved every second.

0:14:590:15:01

-Tell us Flossy and Myfanwy's story.

0:15:010:15:04

-An inspector brought Flossy to us.

0:15:040:15:07

-She had been abused and was here

-as a case dog for a long time.

0:15:070:15:13

-This is Myfanwy.

0:15:130:15:16

-She came from a house

-that had too many animals.

0:15:160:15:19

-There were too many dogs and cats

-so she was in a sorry state.

0:15:200:15:24

-She had never had her fur trimmed

-and so on but she's great!

0:15:240:15:29

-You've worked wonders with them,

-Rhiannon.

0:15:300:15:33

-What's your advice for someone who

-is thinking of adopting an animal?

0:15:330:15:38

-Think of it as giving an animal

-a second chance at life.

0:15:380:15:44

-You might need to do some training

-but you'll reap the rewards.

0:15:440:15:48

-It can be easier to take

-an older dog rather than a puppy.

0:15:480:15:53

-Is it the best thing you've done?

0:15:530:15:55

-Is it the best thing you've done?

-

-Yes, definitely.

0:15:550:15:56

-We have to draw attention

-to Myfanwy's collar.

0:15:570:16:00

-It's lovely.

0:16:000:16:02

-A touch of bling for the dog!

0:16:020:16:04

-Thank you, Rhiannon.

0:16:040:16:06

-If you're thinking about

-adopting an animal...

0:16:060:16:11

-..Rhiannon has given her advice...

0:16:110:16:13

-..but do your research...

0:16:130:16:15

-..and contact your local

-animal centre for more information.

0:16:150:16:19

-The owner of this animal

-didn't do enough research.

0:16:210:16:26

-In his youth, Winston, the micro pig

-was a small and cute creature...

0:16:260:16:31

-..but his owner's life

-was turned upside down...

0:16:310:16:34

-..when Winston changed

-from being micro to macro!

0:16:340:16:38

-I was contacted by a worker

-from the RSPCA...

0:16:380:16:41

-..who had received a call

-from a member of the public.

0:16:410:16:45

-I helped them to collect the pig.

0:16:450:16:47

-When I arrived,

-he was being kept in the kitchen.

0:16:480:16:51

-After two days,

-he had caused extensive damage.

0:16:510:16:54

-There were holes in the cupboards

-and he had damaged the doors.

0:16:540:16:59

-He was frightened

-which made him difficult to catch.

0:17:000:17:03

-At the time, he was small enough to

-go into a cat carrier to bring home.

0:17:030:17:08

-He was small but caused

-a lot of damage in two days!

0:17:080:17:12

-He's much bigger now

-so could cause much more damage.

0:17:120:17:16

-Unfortunately, a lot of people

-think it's a good idea to keep pigs.

0:17:160:17:21

-They are interesting and a lot

-of fun so I can see the appeal...

0:17:220:17:26

-..but they have very different needs

-to other animals.

0:17:260:17:31

-They are not the sort of pets that

-can be kept in the house or garden.

0:17:310:17:36

-You need to prepare and

-know exactly what you're taking on.

0:17:360:17:40

-It's irresponsible to have one

-because it's fashionable.

0:17:400:17:45

-Events are an important part

-of the Llys Nini calendar.

0:17:500:17:54

-They raise funds and awareness

-about the centre.

0:17:540:17:58

-It's also an excuse for rescued and

-rehomed animals to have some fun!

0:17:590:18:04

-Welcome to Gnoll Park in Neath

-for the Llys Nini Dog Show.

0:18:050:18:10

-Every show or Eisteddfod needs

-an experienced and informed judge.

0:18:100:18:15

-The Neath and Wales rugby legend,

-Rowland Phillips has that task.

0:18:160:18:20

-Why am I here?

0:18:200:18:22

-I'm judging the dog show.

0:18:220:18:24

-I can't take part myself because

-I'm a bit of an expert in Europe...

0:18:250:18:30

-..and some say the world!

0:18:310:18:33

-I can't let

-these two enter either...

0:18:330:18:35

-..because they are highly trained!

0:18:360:18:39

-Sit down.

0:18:390:18:41

-Sit... walk...

0:18:410:18:42

-Stay there.

0:18:420:18:44

-Tongue out.

0:18:440:18:45

-Animals are a great way

-to bring people together socially.

0:18:480:18:52

-This group meets regularly

-to walk their dogs at Gnoll Park.

0:18:520:18:56

-The Gnoll Park Furry Friends

-was established two years ago.

0:18:570:19:02

-..and originally had three dogs...

0:19:020:19:05

-..but we now have about 500 members.

0:19:050:19:09

-A lot of children have

-brought their dogs to the show.

0:19:090:19:13

-They are very proud of their pets.

0:19:130:19:15

-I've brought Elvis here today.

0:19:160:19:19

-We're competing in the Cutest Couple

-and Waggiest Tail events.

0:19:190:19:24

-Hello, I'm Cian.

0:19:240:19:26

-I came second

-in the Best Junior Handler event.

0:19:260:19:31

-Ozzie's an English Springer Spaniel

-and we're from Pontardawe.

0:19:310:19:35

-We were third

-in the Waggiest Tail event.

0:19:360:19:39

-This is Chip.

0:19:390:19:41

-Chip is five

-and I'm eight years old.

0:19:410:19:44

-I've thoroughly enjoyed myself.

0:19:440:19:47

-The competitors

-walked around the ring...

0:19:470:19:50

-..and were met by a famous face

-from a popular soap opera.

0:19:510:19:55

-Kirsten and I are supporting

-Llys Nini and all that they do.

0:19:550:20:00

-We've met animals from the charity.

0:20:000:20:03

-They are fantastic, cute, gorgeous

-and they just want some love.

0:20:030:20:08

-This group of dogs

-came from the same litter...

0:20:090:20:13

-..that was rescued over Christmas.

0:20:130:20:16

-It's a school reunion!

0:20:170:20:18

-These dogs were left in a box

-in a field...

0:20:190:20:22

-..before they were found,

-rescued and nurtured by Llys Nini.

0:20:220:20:27

-They haven't met since Christmas.

0:20:280:20:30

-We like to do something

-to help the animals.

0:20:350:20:38

-It's a great day out.

0:20:380:20:40

-We see all the dogs,

-meet different people...

0:20:400:20:44

-..and raise money for Llys Nini

-by selling various items.

0:20:440:20:48

-It's an important centre

-in the area.

0:20:480:20:51

-We should support these centres

-that are found across Wales.

0:20:510:20:56

-It was a sunny and successful day

-for the centre.

0:20:560:21:00

-The families and animals

-had a day that was fit for a king!

0:21:010:21:05

-It's been a great day.

0:21:050:21:07

-We've raised a lot of money

-for the animals at Llys Nini.

0:21:070:21:11

-Everyone's happy with the results

-and are going home happy.

0:21:120:21:16

-BARKING AND GROWLING

0:21:160:21:18

-Who would have thought that

-Rowland Phillips could be a judge?

0:21:210:21:25

-Don't worry, Rowland.

0:21:250:21:27

-Somebody is always wronged!

0:21:270:21:29

-Before we go, we've got the story

-of a special person and a lucky cat.

0:21:290:21:35

-Louise is one of those

-important volunteers...

0:21:370:21:40

-..who is a fosterer

-or temporary carer...

0:21:400:21:43

-..for those animals

-who need special care.

0:21:430:21:46

-Louise and her family love animals

-of all shapes and sizes.

0:21:470:21:50

-Her home is full of them.

0:21:510:21:53

-The centre recently asked Louise

-to care for a cat...

0:21:540:21:57

-..who had been seriously injured

-and underwent an operation.

0:21:580:22:02

-Harry's ordeal was horrific

-to say the least!

0:22:020:22:06

-Whilst driving passed

-Penllergaer Park...

0:22:070:22:10

-..a local man, Mark Norman...

0:22:100:22:13

-..spotted two lads kicking

-a young cat from one to the other.

0:22:130:22:18

-He stopped, shouted at them

-and they ran away.

0:22:180:22:21

-Mark took the cat

-to the surgery at Llys Nini.

0:22:210:22:25

-Harry was seriously injured

-and had a broken leg...

0:22:250:22:29

-..so had an emergency operation.

0:22:290:22:32

-The cat was a stray so

-the public paid for the operation...

0:22:320:22:37

-..after the charity

-appealed for help.

0:22:370:22:40

-At the start, he was very ill...

0:22:400:22:42

-..but has settled down with Louise

-and is much better now.

0:22:430:22:48

-After a long period with Louise...

0:22:480:22:51

-..Harry has made a full recovery and

-lives with Elinor and her partner.

0:22:510:22:56

-He's settled in well

-in his new home.

0:22:570:23:00

-Unfortunately, the lads who were

-so cruel to Harry were never found.

0:23:000:23:06

-That's all for this week.

0:23:080:23:09

-There's details about animals and

-centres on our social media pages.

0:23:100:23:15

-The animals who appeared on this

-programme will have been rehomed...

0:23:160:23:21

-..but a number of animals are

-still waiting to find a new home...

0:23:210:23:25

-..so head to your local

-animal centre.

0:23:260:23:29

-Until next time from Llys Nini...

0:23:290:23:31

-Until next time from Llys Nini...

-

-..the home for animals...

0:23:310:23:33

-Goodbye!
