Philip Williams of Fives Cafe in Abercynon welcomes guide dog trainer Sarah Davies with puppies Rena and Danny
Trainee guide dogs Rena and Danny, aged 17 months, were on their best behaviour when they called at Fives in Abercynon with their handler, Sarah Davies.
The café's loyal clientele donates £1,000 to a different charity each year, and 2013 saw the turn of Guide Dogs Cymru.
Café owner Philip Williams said: "We believe in giving something back to the community. We have a jar on the counter instead of tips, and anything over the bill goes into the jar. We also do raffles at Christmas and Easter, and the customers donate prizes.
"We try to give the proceeds to local causes like Mountain Rescue - you never know when you might need their help yourself."
