“An animal lover who set up a rescue centre in north Wales has been appointed MBE for services to animal health and welfare.
Anne Owen, 65, from Flintshire, is among dozens of Welsh people named on the New Year Honours list.
She set up the North Clwyd Animal Rescue Centre in 1978 after she took in a stray dog.
It is now the largest single animal charity in north Wales, rescuing over 1,800 unwanted cats and dogs in 2014.
Mrs Owen is also passionate about educating people about caring for pets and she regularly takes her mobile road show around schools and communities.
She said she was “really shocked” to hear about her honour…”
North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR) is a registered charity founded in 1978 by Anne Owen. From one thin little Lurcher, we now care for over 1800 domestic pets a year. We have grown to meet these new demands and with the current economic situation these services are vital for the wider community.
North Clwyd Animal Rescue is affiliated to the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust and we are also members of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) and attend their annual conference.
There are many ways you can support NCAR – fundraising, sponsor a kennel or even supporting one of our NCAR charity shops. It really does make a difference!
Or even better – if you are looking for someone warm and cuddly to snuggle up to at night – we might just have the perfect dog, cat or even rabbit!
