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.

I’m Fluke, and I’ve been a resident at NAWT’s Cornwall rehoming centre for nearly two years now.

I didn’t have the best start in life, and found it very difficult to trust humans when I first came into the centre; I especially didn’t enjoy anyone touching me.

This is Snowdrop, an adorable 10-year-old cat who for 8 years was a homeless stray, until he was found in extremely poor health and rescued. He needs your help to pay for the urgent surgery he underwent and to fund his ongoing care.

Snowdrop was taken in by Tatty-Cats in October last year, and his condition was heart-breaking. Sadly, Snowdrop had cancer on his ears and an infection, as well as kidney and thyroid problems. He was filthy, covered in matted fur, riddled with fleas, and suffering from malnutrition, dehydration, and exhaustion. He could hardly even stand up on his own.

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.
