Lost & found & other stuff
Sad news about our four-legged mascot
Sadly our retired FoHP spaniel mascot, Lady, who had gone missing on the park on Saturday 2 June was found dead on Saturday 14 July. She will be much missed by all who met or knew her, as she was a great ambassador for dogs because of her wonderful calm and friendly nature. Her legacy will carry on though as a fund has currently raised over £500 in her honour, which will all go back the rescue she came from and help save another life that way (Four Paws Animal Rescue South Wales).
If anyone loses or finds a dog please contact the dog warden & doglost (note that the police and RSPCA no longer deal with stray dogs).
Getting your dog microchipped won't cost you as much as you think
Microchipping provides the security of knowing that should your dog stray, the chances of being reunited with him will significantly increase.
While every dog owner is legally obliged to ensure that their dog is wearing a collar and tag, these can easily get lost or can be removed if a dog is stolen. A microchip is permanent. Download the Dogs Trust Factsheet HERE.
Cardiff Council can microchip your dog (by appointment) for free. For more info on how to go about getting your dog chipped click on HERE. You still need to make sure your dog has tag on its collar or harness (by law!).
