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.
