It’s that time again, the spring/summer 2021 edition of Animate is now available for your reading pleasure.
Many animals, like me, arrive at a NAWT centre in urgent need of veterinary treatment, and then require extensive on-going care before we can be rehomed. The lovely folk at NAWT always put our welfare first, but medical treatment can be very expensive.
The partnership follows a survey of 2,000 dog-owning drivers which revealed a fifth (22 per cent) got their most recent dog after the start of lockdown – leaving some with hefty costs.
More than a third (35 per cent) of new dog owners said they had to buy a larger or more practical car because of the dog.
However, a vet practice in the 1970s looked very different to today; X-rays were the only form of diagnostic imaging available to pets, and flea treatments were widely ineffective!
Here at NAWT, every animal that comes in to our care is given a full veterinary check upon admission, which is followed up by any necessary treatment.
Do you remember last year’s 2.6 challenge? Well this year, the London Marathon Events company will be celebrating Captain Tom Moore, who famously raised nearly £39 million for the NHS last year by walking 100 laps around his garden. You can get involved this year and raise money for NAWT by joining The Captain Tom 100 Challenge!
To celebrate Captain Tom Moore’s incredible achievements and mark what would have been his 101st birthday, everyone is invited to take part in a fundraising challenge between Friday 30th April and Monday 3rd May (early May bank holiday weekend).
