Greyhound Rescue Wales in Ammanford marks 25 years

A Welsh animal sanctuary which has rescued and re-homed thousands of dogs, is marking its 25th anniversary.

The founder of Greyhound Rescue Wales Alain Thomas said the charity was a reaction to the often cruel dog racing business.

From the sadness of Last Hope, the dog mutilated and left for dead on a Welsh mountainside, to the joy of Lee Frank's £500,000 endowment.

The sanctuary now cares for the dogs' "spiritual, mental and physical health needs," said manager Sandra Wynne.
