Who Is North Clwyd Animal Rescue?
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!

Why Are We Needed?
There are a large number of unwanted, abused and abandoned animals in this region and although this is not a unique issue facing this area, we know that there would be a lot more pain and suffering subjected to animals if we ceased to exist. Our growth tells us that we play a vital part in the community and we also try to enlighten people of the effects of unwanted litters, as sadly there is an imbalance in the number of good homes and animals waiting to be adopted. We are almost constantly filled to capacity with residents.
Where Does The Money Come From?
North Clwyd Animal Rescue receives no state funding. We rely very heavily on voluntary donations. We do have charity shops which help to bring in much needed regular revenue and with vets bills topping £7,000.00 per month, our existence is becoming increasingly financially difficult. We do charge a minimal ‘adoption donation’ for our animals which in most cases does not even cover the Veterinary bill relating to that animal.
WE NEVER PUT AN ANIMAL TO SLEEP
Unless they are suffering and will not recover or they are unsafe to rehome after a behaviourist has worked with the animal at length. Once we take in an animal, it will remain with us until a new home is found.
NCAR Charity Shops
Our Charity shops in Denbigh, Prestatyn, Abergele, Mold and Holywell continue to be invaluable to the running of the Sanctuary. Thanks to all volunteers and for all the generous donations of goods. We are always in need of bric-a-brac, furniture, toys and good quality clothes, as well as volunteers to help man the shops. If you can spare a few hours please give Owain a ring on 01745 560546 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
