Animal Trust, the Community Interest Company (CIC) practice group founded by Owen Monie MRCVS in 2012, is to open a second, 6,000 square foot veterinary hospital in Rhyl, Wales. 

The new facility will have 9 consultation rooms and 4 theatres, and is expected to open in early 2022.

It will be Animal Trust’s 10th veterinary hospital – with existing locations in Wrexham, Yorkshire and North England.

Animal Trust now employs more than 300 vets and veterinary care staff.

A further 15 jobs will be created in Rhyl when the new hospital opens. 

Owen said: “Our ethos has always been that every animal deserves access to experienced and professional veterinary care as soon as they become ill.

"That’s why we offer free consultations for sick and injured animals brought to our surgeries.

"Our clients are from all walks of life and they come to us because of what we stand for and in some cases, for the prices we offer. 

“As a CIC, we try and make sure that a comprehensive veterinary service is within reach of as many pet owners as possible.

"We build large veterinary hospitals that will serve the needs of the local pet-owning community and make a positive impact on their lives.

"Our new surgery will allow us to extend our services to the residents of the North Wales coastline, many of whom currently have to travel to one of our other existing surgeries.”

Funding for Animal Trust was provided by the £500 million Wales Flexible Investment Fund.
