Many of you will remember Bernie’s story from our Christmas Challenge appeal last year. He had been at NAWT for a year, gradually learning to trust people again after a lifetime of neglect.

During his first year in rescue, your donations transformed his future. You gave him the time and understanding that he so desperately needed to cure his deep mistrust of people. You provided the training that would change his mind-set and subsequently transform his future!

Sadly, some dogs arrive at NAWT after traumatic experiences with very cruel people. One of those unlucky pooches is Smith, who was treated so poorly in the past.

The animal care team in Cornwall will never forget when Smith arrived at the centre. He came from a local dog warden and was in a terrible state, completely starving and very scared to step outside into the big wide world again, as his experience of it so far, was a horrific one.

Grace, a young wiry-haired Jack Russel Terrier, arrived at NAWT in severe shock and terrible pain following a nasty attack from another dog. She was covered with several bite marks and puncture wounds, with the most severe one opening up her entire back from shoulder to shoulder.

Grace required emergency surgery if she was going to survive the attack and was immediately rushed to the vet. Thankfully, the vet was able to perform lifesaving surgery, which left her with many battle scars but a whole life ahead of her to enjoy.

Sonny the pony was born at the NAWT HULA centre in 1986 and for almost 33 years he happily grazed the fields, watching all the comings and goings at the centre, and spending time with his friends.

Anyone who has spent time at the HULA centre over the last three decades will associate the farm with a greeting from gentle Sonny, and many supporters would look forward to spending time with this lovely boy when they paid a visit to Glebe Farm.

We were honoured to have been invited by the League Against Cruel Sports to form part of a coalition of 21 animal welfare charities - the coalition sent co-authored letters to all party leaders this month, urging them to defend and strengthen animal protection laws in the run up to the General Election.

The wide ranging topics – for all to see at www.animalprotection2017.org.uk - cover everything from hunting and shooting to animal experimentation, puppy farming and the trade in endangered species.
