Even rock singers love rescue dogs!

Dogs Trust want to say a big thank-you to Matt Davies, lead singer of up and coming Welsh rock band Funeral For a Friend, for recently rehoming a puppy from Dogs Trust Bridgend Rehoming Centre.

Matt, a keen animal lover, decided to rehome the puppy after he saw press reports about five tiny pups who were born at the Rehoming Centre in January 2004.

Staff at Dogs Trust Bridgend had named the puppies Matt, Ryan, Gareth, Kris and Darren as a tribute to Funeral For a Friend who are doing so well in the charts. Matt Davies is also something of a local hero being from Bridgend!

Matt’s Mum, Kay Davies, explains: "One day he said to me ‘Let’s go down to the trust and see if we can rescue a dog’. Then he saw the press reports about the puppies and we thought it’s just something that’s meant to be."

Matt renamed his namesake puppy, Bill.

There are many benefits to the owner when choosing a new dog from a Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre. Dogs will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and come complete with six weeks free insurance with Pet Plan. Dogs Trust will also provide any advice the owner might require when the dogs have been rehomed.

If you are interested in providing a dog with a new home please contact Dogs Trust Bridgend on 01656 725 219.
