-Welcome to the RSPCA

-Llys Nini Animal Centre.

0:00:190:00:23

-Over the last few weeks...

0:00:230:00:25

-..we've met the animals who

-have special care at the centre...

0:00:250:00:29

-..like this gorgeous puppy.

0:00:300:00:31

-He arrived a few days ago after

-being found in a box in a garden.

0:00:320:00:37

-All these animals are rehomed.

0:00:370:00:40

-I doubt this little chap

-will struggle to find a home.

0:00:400:00:44

-Llys Nini

-does some incredible work.

0:00:440:00:46

-Let's remind ourselves

-about what happens here.

0:00:470:00:50

-The RSPCA Llys Nini Animal Centre is

-situated near Junction 47 of the M4.

0:00:510:00:57

-Gorseinon and the Gower

-are to the south.

0:00:570:01:00

-Swansea is to the east

-and the Lliw Valley is to the west.

0:01:000:01:04

-The heart of the centre is an

-old farmhouse from the Middle Ages.

0:01:040:01:09

-It stands on 80 acres of land...

0:01:100:01:12

-..and is the temporary home

-of many orphan animals.

0:01:130:01:16

-The centre develops

-various habitats...

0:01:170:01:20

-..to encourage wildlife

-across the site.

0:01:200:01:24

-It's all in aid of the animals.

0:01:240:01:28

-Llys Nini is an independent charity

-but is affiliated with the RSPCA.

0:01:280:01:34

-This is one

-of 14 branches in Wales...

0:01:340:01:37

-..of The Royal Society for the

-Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

0:01:380:01:43

-The RSPCA inspectors

-of the South-West Wales region...

0:01:440:01:48

-..are located at Llys Nini.

0:01:490:01:51

-They save animals that have been

-abandoned, neglected or mistreated.

0:01:510:01:57

-Many of them come

-to the Llys Nini Centre.

0:01:570:02:00

-I'm at Castell Einon which is one of

-the latest attractions at Llys Nini.

0:02:020:02:08

-Its name has historical links.

0:02:080:02:10

-On this programme, we hear more

-about the history of Nini...

0:02:110:02:15

-..with some local ramblers.

0:02:150:02:17

-There's Shane the dog

-who caught a bus.

0:02:170:02:21

-The inspector came aboard and found

-the dog hiding under the seats.

0:02:210:02:27

-We visit a dog show

-organized by Joe and Lacey Allen.

0:02:270:02:30

-There's also Snowy the Akita

-who's now in her seventh heaven.

0:02:310:02:36

-Steffan Alun, the animal's friend,

-is another one who's always happy.

0:02:360:02:41

-We've seen a lot of cats and dogs

-throughout the series...

0:02:440:02:48

-..but these centres

-house other animals.

0:02:480:02:51

-These rabbits

-are only six weeks old.

0:02:510:02:56

-They are fantastic pets...

0:02:560:02:58

-..but there are important things

-to know if you want your own rabbit.

0:02:580:03:03

-They are very social animals...

0:03:030:03:05

-..need a lot of exercise and

-should be kept with other rabbits.

0:03:060:03:11

-They also need regular contact

-with people or a family...

0:03:110:03:16

-..to stop them

-from getting depressed.

0:03:160:03:19

-This can lead to an array

-of other illnesses too.

0:03:200:03:24

-Their teeth and nails

-grow all their lives...

0:03:240:03:28

-..so it's important

-to trim their nails...

0:03:280:03:31

-..and have items for them to nibble

-to keep their teeth short...

0:03:310:03:36

-..or you would need

-to go to the vet.

0:03:360:03:39

-Their diet is also important.

0:03:390:03:41

-Many think that you can give them

-any kind of vegetable...

0:03:410:03:45

-..but some varieties of lettuce

-can make them seriously ill...

0:03:460:03:51

-..so do your research.

0:03:520:03:54

-But on the whole, they are beautiful

-and make a lovely pet for anyone.

0:03:540:04:00

-From time to time, these animals

-get themselves into trouble.

0:04:020:04:07

-This is the amazing story of an

-incredible dog who caught a bus!

0:04:070:04:12

-The bus ran from Blaen-y-Maes

-into the centre of Swansea.

0:04:160:04:20

-The bus stopped to pick up

-some people in Manselton...

0:04:200:04:24

-..and the driver

-saw a dog run onto the bus.

0:04:240:04:27

-He thought the dog

-looked stressed...

0:04:270:04:30

-..so thought it best

-to take the dog with him.

0:04:300:04:34

-At the bus station, he told them

-over the radio about the dog.

0:04:340:04:39

-The inspector came aboard and found

-the dog hiding under the seats.

0:04:390:04:45

-She managed to catch him and

-took him upstairs to the manager.

0:04:450:04:50

-They could see that

-he had been bleeding and had a cut.

0:04:510:04:55

-They cleaned him up

-and contacted Llys Nini.

0:04:550:04:58

-They made arrangements

-to take him to the centre.

0:04:590:05:04

-Local lass Louise was looking for

-a dog for herself and her partner.

0:05:040:05:09

-When she heard of this

-Terrier's exploits on the bus...

0:05:090:05:13

-..she met him and knew

-that he was the dog for them.

0:05:130:05:17

-Louise has brought Shane back to

-the First Cymru Depot in Penlan...

0:05:170:05:22

-..to thank everyone

-for caring for him.

0:05:220:05:25

-A lot of the staff at First Cymru

-are animal lovers.

0:05:250:05:29

-The manager is a real softie!

0:05:290:05:31

-She's got two dogs herself.

0:05:310:05:33

-Many members of staff

-are dog owners.

0:05:330:05:36

-You can't not like dogs!

0:05:360:05:39

-He's very calm, loving

-and loves cuddles.

0:05:390:05:42

-You can see why we call him Shane

-Williams as you can't catch him.

0:05:420:05:47

-He sidesteps us and everything!

0:05:470:05:49

-Shane might get an official bus pass

-after his adventure on the buses.

0:05:500:05:56

-The history of the site

-is many centuries old...

0:05:580:06:02

-..and the Llys Nini

-heritage trail...

0:06:020:06:04

-..enables the community

-to learn about their local history.

0:06:050:06:09

-Let's join the historian,

-Harri Williams...

0:06:090:06:12

-..and a group of ramblers...

0:06:130:06:15

-..as they follow an old Roman road

-that traverses the site.

0:06:150:06:20

-The remains of an old Roman fort

-are said to be in that direction.

0:06:200:06:26

-It was a site

-for temporary accommodation.

0:06:260:06:29

-The settlement wasn't very large.

0:06:300:06:32

-You could say that it was like

-a bed and breakfast!

0:06:330:06:36

-I suspect that in Roman times...

0:06:370:06:40

-..they simply took charge of the

-old tracks that were already here.

0:06:400:06:46

-They extended the paths

-to the Lliw River...

0:06:460:06:50

-..crossed the River Loughor...

0:06:500:06:52

-..before heading towards

-Carmarthen or Moridunum.

0:06:520:06:57

-In the years that followed,

-they built roads to St Davids.

0:06:570:07:02

-Thank you.

0:07:030:07:04

-This is the land of Llys Nini.

0:07:040:07:07

-There's much speculation

-about the origin of "Nini."

0:07:070:07:11

-Many suspect it derived from the

-name of Einon found in Gorseinon.

0:07:110:07:17

-It's a shortened form of that.

0:07:180:07:20

-This tradition stems back

-to the time of Llywelyn the Great...

0:07:200:07:24

-..when this land

-was given to Gruffudd Gwyr.

0:07:250:07:30

-Gruffudd Gwyr

-was given this land by Llywelyn...

0:07:300:07:34

-..for his support

-against the Normans.

0:07:340:07:37

-The Gwyr family name

-developed into Gower...

0:07:380:07:43

-..which is a relatively

-common surname in this area.

0:07:430:07:48

-The ramblers stop for lunch...

0:07:480:07:51

-..and have arrived

-in the 19th century.

0:07:510:07:55

-Enjoy your food.

0:07:550:07:57

-We'll move forward

-to a period after the Civil War...

0:07:570:08:03

-..to the tumultuous time

-of the Rebecca Riots.

0:08:030:08:08

-In this area, we all know about the

-Rebecca Riots in the 19th century.

0:08:090:08:15

-They wanted to ban the tollgates.

0:08:150:08:18

-These people didn't just

-support the campaign...

0:08:180:08:21

-..but they acted upon

-the beliefs of Rebecca.

0:08:220:08:26

-It's easy to think

-they were responsible...

0:08:260:08:29

-..for destroying the tollgate

-at Pontarddulais.

0:08:290:08:33

-These people

-were celebrated in the area...

0:08:330:08:36

-..for supporting

-that kind of ideology.

0:08:360:08:41

-That's the end of

-the Step Forward group's trail...

0:08:410:08:45

-..and we've learnt the history of

-Llys Nini throughout the centuries.

0:08:450:08:50

-It sheltered a Roman legion,

-was the home of lords...

0:08:500:08:54

-..and a hiding place

-for the Rebecca Rioters.

0:08:540:08:57

-Today, it's a shelter

-for a host of needy animals.

0:08:570:09:02

-The amount of animals left on

-a roadside in a bag or box is awful.

0:09:050:09:11

-Many of these animals

-are merely a few days old.

0:09:110:09:15

-This happened to a litter of puppies

-found in a car park in Merthyr.

0:09:150:09:21

-Gemma has the story.

0:09:210:09:23

-This is another lovely story.

0:09:260:09:28

-Five puppies were found in a box

-behind Asda in Merthyr Tydfil.

0:09:290:09:34

-Nobody knows where they came from.

0:09:350:09:37

-Someone brought them to the clinic

-in Merthyr Tydfil.

0:09:370:09:42

-We heard of a person who had a dog

-that had lost all her puppies.

0:09:420:09:47

-She thought her dog was going to die

-because she had lost her puppies.

0:09:470:09:53

-Freya was that heart-broken dog

-who had lost all her puppies...

0:09:530:09:58

-..owned by Paula and her family

-from Cymer Afan.

0:09:580:10:02

-Uniting the Asda puppies and Freya

-was a massive success.

0:10:030:10:08

-She's the perfect fosterer

-and step-mother.

0:10:080:10:12

-By communicating with us...

0:10:120:10:14

-..we were able to find the puppies

-a mother.

0:10:150:10:18

-They are all happy

-and doing extremely well.

0:10:180:10:22

-It's a fabulous story.

0:10:220:10:24

-The five were named after members of

-the successful Welsh football team.

0:10:240:10:29

-The boys are Bale,

-Allen and Williams...

0:10:300:10:32

-..and the girls

-are Taylor and Ramsey.

0:10:330:10:35

-Llys Nini works closely with various

-training agencies in the community.

0:10:440:10:49

-They offer an array of activities

-for young people.

0:10:490:10:53

-Every month, a group of young

-photographers meet at the site...

0:10:530:10:57

-..to record the area's environmental

-and physical changes.

0:10:570:11:03

-This is our photography group

-that meets once a month.

0:11:060:11:10

-They are a group of youngsters

-from an organization called ASDES...

0:11:110:11:15

-..that supports young people on the

-autistic spectrum into employment.

0:11:150:11:20

-They also have a social element.

0:11:210:11:23

-The group gathers

-in the centre's meeting room...

0:11:230:11:27

-..to discuss the day's themes

-before going to take photographs.

0:11:280:11:32

-A library of photographs

-for each season...

0:11:330:11:36

-..enables all to see

-how the site is evolving...

0:11:360:11:40

-..and acts as a permanent record.

0:11:400:11:43

-The idea is to create

-a year-long diary of the site.

0:11:430:11:47

-They spot things in a different way

-to how I would view them...

0:11:470:11:53

-..so it's very useful.

0:11:530:11:55

-After returning to the centre,

-they discuss their photographs.

0:11:560:12:00

-As we can see,

-some of them are truly amazing!

0:12:000:12:04

-After the break, we hear from

-the actor and author, Manon Eames.

0:12:260:12:31

-She chats about losing a dear friend

-but finding another.

0:12:310:12:35

-We share a story

-with Ysgol Pontybrenin.

0:12:350:12:38

-Are you ready?

0:12:390:12:40

-Are you ready?

-

-Yes.

0:12:400:12:41

-Are you ready?

0:12:410:12:41

-Are you ready?

-

-Yes!

0:12:410:12:43

-We also meet Rocky and Snowy

-who have been given a second chance.

0:12:440:12:49

-Welcome back.

0:13:060:13:08

-We've already met the Llys Nini

-supporters, Joe and Lacey Allen.

0:13:080:13:14

-They both host many

-fund-raising events for the charity.

0:13:140:13:18

-We recently joined Lacey at an event

-in Pen y Cae in the Swansea Valley.

0:13:180:13:24

-It's a special day

-at the Pen y Cae Inn near Abercrave.

0:13:280:13:32

-Lacey Allen returned from an

-important football competition...

0:13:330:13:37

-..in the history

-of the Welsh football team...

0:13:370:13:41

-..to be at this event for Llys Nini.

0:13:410:13:44

-As part of our campaign

-to raise money for Llys Nini...

0:13:450:13:49

-..we decided to put on a fun day

-in our local community.

0:13:490:13:53

-We're gutted Joe can't be here.

0:13:530:13:56

-He's in France and gutted he can't

-be here and sends his best wishes.

0:13:570:14:01

-Joe was fighting for Wales

-in Euro 2016...

0:14:020:14:05

-..but Joe Junior was on hand

-as a substitute for his father.

0:14:060:14:11

-This is my sister, Bridey.

0:14:120:14:14

-She works at the Pen y Cae Inn

-out the back with the animals.

0:14:140:14:18

-Her boyfriend and his father

-run the place.

0:14:180:14:21

-Yes, the Pen y Cae Inn is the only

-pub in Wales with a zoo licence.

0:14:210:14:26

-It's the ideal place

-to host an event like this.

0:14:260:14:29

-Kizzy, would you like

-to say something?

0:14:300:14:33

-Thanks to everyone

-who is here with their animals.

0:14:330:14:38

-It's been a fantastic day.

0:14:380:14:40

-The highlight of the day

-was a grand auction.

0:14:400:14:44

-Joe sent footballs and jerseys from

-France signed by the Welsh team.

0:14:440:14:49

-Joe and Lacey have made

-loads of money for Llys Nini.

0:14:490:14:52

-It's been amazing and we've raised

-a lot of money today.

0:14:530:14:57

-A round of applause, please

-for everyone.

0:14:580:15:01

-Joe and Lacey Allen's event...

0:15:010:15:03

-..raised 3,600 for the animals

-in South-West Wales.

0:15:040:15:08

-That's brilliant!

0:15:090:15:10

-Next is the story

-of another famous face.

0:15:100:15:13

-Manon Eames tells us about

-the friend who changed her life.

0:15:130:15:17

-The actor and author, Manon Eames

-knows about rehoming animals...

0:15:220:15:27

-..and the responsibilities

-that come with it.

0:15:270:15:31

-After losing a very dear friend

-and pet recently...

0:15:310:15:35

-..she has chosen a different route

-whilst looking for her next pet.

0:15:350:15:41

-He was my first dog.

0:15:420:15:44

-I'd wanted a dog for years but felt

-it was unfair because of my work.

0:15:440:15:48

-I chose to adopt a dog so that it

-was less work than getting a puppy.

0:15:490:15:54

-Ollie was six months old.

0:15:540:15:56

-He was a fantastic dog

-and my best friend.

0:15:570:16:01

-He had a lot of problems with his

-hips as is common amongst Labradors.

0:16:010:16:06

-Unfortunately, he died in May

-after being very ill.

0:16:060:16:10

-He was only six and a half.

0:16:110:16:13

-I was heartbroken.

0:16:130:16:16

-I didn't know what to do.

0:16:160:16:18

-Was I going to get another dog,

-adopt a dog or get a puppy?

0:16:180:16:22

-I finally reached the decision

-that I was too emotional...

0:16:220:16:26

-..and too stressed to adopt a dog

-that had its own problems.

0:16:260:16:32

-I chose to get a baby

-- a little puppy...

0:16:330:16:36

-..and Stanley arrived.

0:16:370:16:38

-She's called Stanley because

-the other dog was called Ollie.

0:16:390:16:43

-I had her

-when she was eight weeks old.

0:16:440:16:46

-She's been a lot of work...

0:16:470:16:48

-..but she has repaired

-my broken heart.

0:16:490:16:52

-I feel it's very important

-for Stanley to have some company.

0:16:540:16:58

-When I was looking into either

-adopting a dog or getting a puppy...

0:16:590:17:03

-..I read about those dogs...

0:17:040:17:06

-..who are used to produce puppies

-on those puppy farms.

0:17:060:17:11

-They are better when rehomed

-with a dog who is settled...

0:17:110:17:15

-..so as soon as Stanley

-has settled properly...

0:17:150:17:19

-..I plan to adopt another dog.

0:17:190:17:22

-If you're considering a second dog

-as company for a current pet...

0:17:230:17:27

-..it's important

-to think about it carefully.

0:17:270:17:31

-Make sure that both pets meet often

-before making any decisions.

0:17:310:17:37

-Manon is still looking for

-the perfect friend for Stanley.

0:17:370:17:42

-This is James.

0:17:470:17:49

-His story is a sad one.

0:17:490:17:50

-He was brought here as an orphan.

0:17:510:17:53

-On top of this,

-he has a back injury.

0:17:530:17:57

-We don't know how it happened.

0:17:570:17:59

-It's unlikely that he fell.

0:17:590:18:01

-Cats can cope with a fall

-due to the nature of their bodies...

0:18:010:18:05

-..as well as their cautious nature.

0:18:060:18:08

-It's possible that the injury

-was caused by a car accident.

0:18:080:18:13

-As a result of this,

-James needs a home...

0:18:130:18:15

-..where he can be a house cat

-that doesn't go outdoors.

0:18:160:18:19

-Animals can overcome

-a lot of things...

0:18:200:18:23

-..and cope with illnesses

-or disabilities...

0:18:230:18:27

-..such as the loss of a tail,

-a leg or an eye.

0:18:270:18:31

-All sorts of animals find

-a comfortable and loving home...

0:18:310:18:37

-..and we hope to find

-one of those homes for James.

0:18:370:18:41

-It's a glorious day.

0:18:490:18:51

-The team is very busy.

0:18:510:18:53

-What's happening behind us?

0:18:530:18:55

-This is part of Llys Nini's

-nature and heritage project.

0:18:550:18:59

-We have a story based on Llys Nini.

0:18:590:19:02

-The children look for clues

-to make a password...

0:19:020:19:06

-..to enter Castell Einon

-which is our on-site playground.

0:19:070:19:11

-It's their reward but they also

-learn a lot about the place.

0:19:120:19:16

-That's important too.

0:19:160:19:18

-It's important to encourage children

-to go outdoors...

0:19:180:19:22

-..and enjoy all

-that nature has to offer.

0:19:220:19:25

-After listening to the story...

0:19:250:19:28

-..the children search along the path

-for the letters of the password...

0:19:280:19:33

-..and learn more about nature

-and the history of the site.

0:19:330:19:38

-I've found the letter "I."

0:19:390:19:41

-They find some letters

-in no time at all.

0:19:410:19:45

-Elin!

0:19:460:19:47

-We've found a letter.

0:19:470:19:49

-We've found a letter.

-

-That's so exciting.

0:19:490:19:50

-What have you found?

0:19:500:19:51

-What have you found?

-

-N.

0:19:510:19:52

-What else have you found?

0:19:530:19:54

-What else have you found?

-

-E.

0:19:540:19:55

-Any idea what the word could be?

0:19:560:19:58

-Any idea what the word could be?

-

-Enfys.

0:19:580:20:00

-Think about the story

-you've just heard.

0:20:000:20:03

-It's bound to be based on this site

-and the story you heard.

0:20:030:20:08

-Shall we look for more letters?

0:20:090:20:10

-Shall we look for more letters?

-

-Yes.

0:20:100:20:12

-Are you ready?

0:20:120:20:13

-Are you ready?

-

-Yes.

0:20:130:20:14

-Are you ready?

0:20:140:20:14

-Are you ready?

-

-Yes!

0:20:140:20:16

-They return to the Story Chair...

0:20:200:20:23

-..but have they discovered

-the password?

0:20:230:20:26

-Hello!

0:20:270:20:27

-Hello!

-

-Hello!

0:20:270:20:29

-Have you found all the letters?

0:20:290:20:32

-Yes.

0:20:320:20:33

-What do they spell?

0:20:330:20:35

-What do they spell?

-

-Einon.

0:20:350:20:36

-Yes, go and play in the castle.

-Well done!

0:20:360:20:39

-Playing in Castell Einon

-is a great reward...

0:20:460:20:50

-..and they meet

-some of the animals too.

0:20:500:20:53

-We've already had one story here...

0:20:570:20:59

-..but Gemma has the story

-of an animal for us.

0:21:000:21:04

-Let's hear about Rocky,

-a dog from Pembrokeshire.

0:21:080:21:11

-Rocky was kept in a cage

-on the kitchen floor...

0:21:120:21:15

-..and he didn't have

-any room to move.

0:21:150:21:18

-He didn't have any drinking water

-and was surrounded by faeces.

0:21:180:21:23

-He couldn't see anything...

0:21:230:21:25

-..because his fur was matted

-around his eyes...

0:21:250:21:29

-..and they were infected.

0:21:290:21:31

-His owners were a husband and wife

-from Haverfordwest.

0:21:310:21:35

-They were found guilty of abuse.

0:21:350:21:38

-Improving his living conditions,

-clipping and brushing him...

0:21:380:21:43

-..could have prevented

-this suffering.

0:21:430:21:46

-Seek assistance if you cannot

-care for your pet correctly.

0:21:470:21:52

-Rocky spent time recovering

-at Llys Nini.

0:21:520:21:55

-He's been adopted by a new family...

0:21:550:21:58

-..and enjoys the beach, playing

-with his toys and going for a walk.

0:21:580:22:03

-Let's join Steff

-who is with another animal...

0:22:070:22:10

-..who is also very happy now.

0:22:110:22:14

-We've come to meet Wayne and Lisa

-who are supporters of Llys Nini.

0:22:140:22:20

-We're also meeting Snowy the Akita.

0:22:200:22:23

-She has a horrific background.

0:22:230:22:26

-She was owned by drug addicts...

0:22:260:22:29

-..and got caught in the middle

-of an argument over money...

0:22:290:22:33

-..between members of the gang.

0:22:340:22:36

-The worst thing

-that happened to her...

0:22:360:22:39

-..was that an addict threatened

-to inject her with heroin...

0:22:390:22:43

-..unless he got his money.

0:22:440:22:45

-It's difficult to imagine

-the backgrounds of the dogs...

0:22:460:22:50

-..that are brought to centres

-such as Llys Nini.

0:22:500:22:53

-Thanks to Wayne and Lisa, Snowy has

-been given a new life and is happy.

0:22:530:22:59

-That's all for another week

-and thanks for joining us.

0:23:030:23:06

-Our social media pages have more

-about the content of the series.

0:23:070:23:11

-The animals who appeared on this

-programme will have been rehomed...

0:23:110:23:16

-..but a number of animals are

-still waiting to find a new home...

0:23:160:23:21

-..so head to your local

-animal centre.

0:23:210:23:24

-Until next time from Llys Nini...

0:23:240:23:26

-Until next time from Llys Nini...

-

-..the home for animals...

0:23:260:23:28

-Goodbye!
