 The Administration Block and Shop Llys Nini Animal Centre

This block houses the reception and shop, offices and our meeting/education room. We ask all visitors, on arrival,  to come to  reception  to sign them in and then sign out so that we know, for safety reasons, who is on site.

The shop carries a variety of pet products and specialist foods. If we don't have something in stock, we are happy to order it for you. All the profit from our shop goes directly back to the Animal Centre to help to care for the animals.
