Paws for a moment to help us find homes for Paddy and Felicity! 🐾

Can you help find ‘somepawdy’ for Paddy and Felicity to love?

Both Paddy and Felicity are currently at RSPCA Bryn Y Maen Animal Centre in Upper Colwyn Bay and are awaiting their furever homes.

They sadly have been overlooked and staff are hoping a special appeal will help find their perfect matches.

Centre manager Vicky Williams said: “We are really hoping to find these two their perfect homes this summer. They both have a few special needs but are truly amazing and are going to make wonderful additions to a family.”


Felicity is a six-year-old domestic shorthair crossbreed and although she can be wary at first, she is only a few treats away from being your best friend!

Vicky added: “Felicity came into our care with a skin allergy, but now it has regrown after a course of treatment. She is now off all medications and is ready to find her forever home.

“Our gorgeous girl hasn’t been tested to see if she has any allergies, but is currently being fed on an anallergenic diet to support her. A member of our cattery team will be happy to discuss this with any potential adoptees.”

Felicity, who is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, would be able to live with a dog and children of older primary school age or above.

Seven-year-old German Shepherd Paddy came into RSPCA care due to concerns for his welfare.

“He was initially quite overwhelmed coming into kennels, but like most German Shepherds he found his paws once he formed a bond with his

handlers,” said Vicky.


“He is now looking for the perfect person or family to show him how good life can be after his neglectful start in life.

“Unfortunately Paddy does suffer from a condition called spondylosis which means he’s not looking for hours and hours of exercise. Thankfully he enjoys training games and enrichment which will help to exercise his brain instead.”

Paddy is looking for a family where any children are ideally aged 14 years or older. He will need to be the only dog in the home and he cannot live with cats. Watch a video of his training.

If you can offer Felicity or Paddy the home they deserve please email a completed dog or cat perfect match form to brynymaen@rspca.org.uk.

With the increase in pet ownership and the cost of living crisis putting a strain on people’s finances, the RSPCA fears it may see more animals coming into its care at a time when rehoming has slowed.

RSPCA frontline teams are working hard to rescue animals in need this summer but they can’t do it alone – they need your help to Cancel Out Cruelty. To adopt a rescue animal, visit: www.rspca.org.uk/findapet
