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.

Before he arrived at NAWT, poor Tom had lost all of the fur around his neck, where his collar had been held on very tightly with a cable tie. Sadly, this wasn’t his biggest problem and things were about to get even worse for this lovely little cat.

Tom was suffering from a horrific ear infection, that had been left untreated for far too long. So long that the vet struggled to get drops into his ear, because his outer ear and ear canal were so terribly swollen.

Cherry was only 9 months old when she arrived at NAWT. A miniature Chihuahua crossed with a Yorkshire Terrier, she was a tiny little thing and super cute.

However, young Cherry had a problem; she was heavily pregnant with four extremely large puppies, in comparison to her size. There was absolutely no way Cherry or the puppies were going to survive the full pregnancy; it would have killed all five of them. Unfortunately, Cherry’s pregnancy had to be terminated in order to save at least one life.

Robin arrived at NAWT earlier this year, when he and his three littermates were dumped outside the gate of our HULA centre and left to fend for themselves.

The animal care team made the distressing discovery of four incredibly sick puppies when they arrived to work that morning. It was clear to see all four puppies were fighting for their lives, and battling something very serious. An urgent vet check confirmed everyone’s worst fears; every puppy had parvovirus and they were so sick, there was a very big chance they may all die overnight.

Before she arrived at NAWT, Lulu was found wandering the streets, abandoned and alone in an awful condition.

An initial welfare assessment raised concerns about her matted fur, incredibly sore skin and a terrible flea infestation. There was no choice but to remove all the hair on her body so that her skin could be efficiently treated. At this stage, it also became clear that Lulu had mammary tumours that would need removing.
