Rubin is lucky to be alive. He arrived into HULA care in a very bad way – he was very scared, very underweight and suffering with a very sore wound. 
He was handed over to a vet in Leighton Buzzard, where his huge wound was treated. Poor Rubin ended up having 10 stitches and we’re still not sure what happened to him.

Following this, he was brought into the HULA centre to recover, and after only four weeks he has made an amazing recovery.

Little girl Cfur is a gorgeous but timid black and white cat – she lost her owner back in 2016 when they sadly passed away.

Following this, Cfur was very nervous and rarely moved from her bed.

Because she struggles with cattery life, NAWT staff work hard to bond with Cfur and have used Open Paw to slowly build her confidence.

Now she will show her face, but is regularly over shadowed by the nosier and braver cats in the Watford cattery.

Sensitive boy Bernie arrived at our Watford centre after he was picked up as a stray.

On arrival, as with all our dogs, Bernie had a temperament test to determine whether he would cope in a kennel environment. 

Being a young male, you may expect him to be a confident, happy dog, ready to explore the world, but unfortunately for Bernie, he was the opposite.

Sweet boy Polo was born at the National Animal Welfare Trust in Clacton after his pregnant mum came in as a stray.

Sadly, he and his brother Tinker struggled to find a home but after two long years - they both managed to secure loving families!

Polo was a shy boy who would constantly hide from visitors and never put his best paw forward to be re-homed.
