Snoopy arrives in South Wales

Cymro (Welshman) by Rhiannon Roberts

The first ever Snoopy art trail has come to South Wales!

Dogs Trust is celebrating their new rehoming centre in Cardiff with an exciting new adventure – A Dog’s Trail.

Featuring the world’s most iconic dog, the trail is helping to raise funds for Dogs Trust so they can continue to care for thousands of dogs each year whilst they wait for their forever home.

40 uniquely designed Snoopy sculptures can now be found around Cardiff, Cardiff Bay, Caerphilly and Porthcawl and will remain until Sunday 5 June before heading to auction to raise more money. Make sure you keep an eye out for the 75 mini Snoopy sculptures in Cardiff’s public venues, all designed and decorated by school children across the region.

Maps are available across the trail route, including at a Dog’s Trail Shop in Mermaid Quay. You can find lots of Snoopy merchandise, from plush toys to tote bags to dog accessories.

When asked why he wanted to be involved, Adrian Field, Executive Director of sponsor FOR Cardiff, says:

“It provides an opportunity for people to go into areas they wouldn’t normally venture into as part of the trail around the city centre [and] exploring independent areas. Part of what we wanted to do… is to get people back into city centres as part of our recovery post-covid. [It is] an activity for people of all ages to do.”

Owen Sharp, Chief Executive of Dogs Trust, says:

“The trail’s aim is to raise pounds for hounds so that we can continue to improve dog welfare in Wales. We know that it is going to be a spectacular exhibition for everyone who joins in and we’re excited to make A Dog’s Trail a lasting legacy, just like Snoopy himself!”
