Poor Marley arrived at the NAWT Clacton centre in a very bad way and in need of urgent medical attention.
This shy, senior dog had large masses on his head and neck. His ears were also in need of treatment and he had painfully matted fur, making his daily life very uncomfortable.
It was clear to see that this sweet natured boy was affected by his ailments. He spent a lot of time just laying still on his bed, but with patience and the help of some tasty treats, the team made friends with Marley.
Meet some of our furry feline residents below, who are hoping to find themselves a loving new home this Clawgust.
Say hello to handsome and confident Mo from the Berkshire centre. This young boy has a playful side to him, but also enjoys his peace and quiet with plenty of naps.
He is also a bit of a wanderer, so access to the great outdoors with lots of room to explore is very important.
The lockdown has certainly been an unpleasant experience for everyone to some extent, but thankfully there have been many lovely rehoming stories to help us look on the bright side and focus on something more positive during these strange times.
Although we have managed to rehome plenty of animals during the lockdown, some are still waiting for their loving new owners. Click on the links below for more details on rehoming.
Oscar – Cornwall
Oscar is a very sweet old boy that loves a lap to sleep on, a sunny spot to sunbathe in or a comfortable bed. He can be a quiet boy...until it comes to meal times, then he will make himself known!
The coronavirus pandemic has left rescue and rehoming charities facing a dramatic shortfall in income due to the forced temporary closure and curtailment of fundraising activities at their rehoming centres and shops.
This week NAWT has written to the Government asking it to allocate funds to the Coronavirus Emergency Appeal managed by the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes, which would be available to all 1,200 pet rescue and rehoming organisations in the UK.
