Picture the scene.  A normal weekday morning.  Everybody in the house is up, ready for school / ready for work / ready for the day.  The family heads out and as they leave, release their beloved family dog out of the door, ready to roam the streets for the day with other like-minded pet pooches, returning for their dinner in the evening…..

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.)

Did you know that an incredible 59% of UK households now own a pet of some sort or other? With levels of pet ownership rising by a whopping 18% over the last year.

Losing a pet can have a devastating effect on an owner’s life in many ways. Feelings of intense grief, loneliness and bewilderment can affect long-term health and wellbeing.

While it’s a subject many people either won’t want to think about, let alone discuss, here at NAWT we take a very different view thanks to our partnership with ALLY.

When the time came to chose a new rescue cat, Charlotte was like most of us, in that she wanted to a cuddly lap cat. But then she saw Nala, and everything changed.

The fearful, lonely cat was going to be a difficult animal to rehome, simply because she had trouble getting close to humans. Charlotte took one look at Nala’s beautiful face and immediately felt she should be the one to give her the safe, happy, home she needed to rebuild her trust in people again.

Many animals, like me, arrive at a NAWT centre in urgent need of veterinary treatment, and then require extensive on-going care before we can be rehomed. The lovely folk at NAWT always put our welfare first, but medical treatment can be very expensive.
