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!

Until recently, it was thought that rabbits were introduced to Britain from France, after the Norman Conquest around the 11th Century.

Whilst they were farmed for their fur and meat, many sources suggest that some of the medieval gentry women started to keep rabbits as pets.

Socks is an English springer spaniel, who came to our Hertfordshire centre in early January 2021 as a stray.

During his initial assessment on arrival, Socks showed little to no interest in toys or food, and was shrinking away from human contact.

However, he showed a flicker of interest in Shelley, a Junior Animal Care Leader, and herself an experienced Spaniel owner. Shelley was allocated to work with Socks for his first few days to help him settle.
