Christmas in a rescue centres like the NAWT, sees the arrival of many things. From toys and treats for the animals to gifts for the staff, sadly we also see the arrival of unwanted and abandoned animals.
Throughout the festive period, it was business as usual within our walls as we welcomed new faces into our care.
In the build up to Christmas, our Clacton centre welcomed two 11-week-old Jack Russell cross puppies.
Holly and Evie were the result of an accidental and unexpected pregnancy, and were relinquished to us to ensure they found suitable, loving forever homes.
The girls went home on foster with a member of our animal care team where they soon started to show off their cheeky, adorable personalities.
They may have been tiny but they certainly made a huge impression!
Whilst the puppies spent their first Christmas without a permanent family of their own, they still received plenty of Christmas cuddles, extra treats and lots of presents.
Once the festive period had passed, our Clacton staff matched the playful pups with a loving family who had registered an interest in rehoming at the centre.
Once all the necessary steps in the process were completed, the girls were able to transition smoothly into their forever home.
To help animals like Holly and Evie, please help us make 2019 the year of re-homing.
If you think 2019 could be the year to get a new addition, be it a dog, cat or rabbit, please visit your local centre and consider homeless and abandoned animals just waiting for someone to love.
Taking on a rescue pet is a very rewarding experience and we will support you every step of the way.
What’s the first step to finding your perfect match?
Discuss with all the family what sort of pet is best for you, considering your home, lifestyle and commitments.
You can browse our website which is updated regularly with available animals once they have completed necessary assessment periods.
Or you can pop along to your local centre – you can have a chat with a member of the team who can discuss potential matches in further depth and help you find the right pet.
Once you’ve found a perfect pooch or marvellous moggy, you’re on your way to building a relationship with your chosen pet and completing the process.
