Today we are very familiar with the idea of the ‘rescue’ pet, however it hasn’t always been that way and as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we look back at how attitudes have changed towards rescue.

Fifty years ago, pets were likely brought to the family home from a neighbour, work, or school friend, whose pet had had a litter of puppies or kittens, or alternatively they were bought from the local pet shop (many a school-child growing up in the 70s has spent time standing outside a pet shop, lovingly gazing in at the puppies/kittens/guinea pigs in the window.)

Earlier this year, #TeamNAWT was officially assembled when Daniella and Zoe were chosen to be our London Marathon runners.

In October 2021, they will take on the epic challenge of running 26 miles. They have been training hard whilst also fundraising for NAWT, aiming to raise £3,000 between them before the big run.

We caught up with the girls recently to find out what motivates them to run, as well as how they are getting on with raising money and getting themselves ready to go conquer all those miles!

We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to the Petplan Charitable Trust, who have pledged £12,500 towards our forthcoming Pet Care in the Community project.

Pet ownership is soaring in popularity, as we treasure the joy and comfort our furry pals bring. Looking to the future, we anticipate that animal welfare charities like ours will be doing more community work, which is why we’re looking to raise £50,000 for a Pet Care in the Community scheme.

Given the massive popularity of owning your very own pet, have you ever thought about how people’s attitudes to pet ownership have changed over the last 50 years?

As humans, we use products to monitor our health and fitness, so why not our dogs?

With one of NAWT's partners, Pawfit, providing a pet location and activity tracker, wellness month seemed an ideal opportunity to ask their Senior Marketing Executive, Rebecca Austin, a few questions:

Q. Why is monitoring my dog’s exercise and health important?

"Just like humans, our dogs need regular daily exercise to ensure they stay fit and healthy throughout their lives.
