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.

Ozzy is a beautiful collie who we are very pleased to say has been rehomed this year, but when he first came into our Cornwall centre, he was terrified of vehicles and reactive to anything that moved.

His fear of vehicles was so bad, that the staff had some trouble getting him into a vehicle to take him to the vets for neutering and vaccination; it was a major obstacle to overcome. He must have had a terrible experience to have frightened him so much and have such a negative association with vehicles.

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.

Saturday 20th February 2021 is National Love Your Pet Day, a great day to show some love to our four-legged furry friends.

Whether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, rabbit lover or general animal lover, this day is another excuse to spoil them even more than you normally do and show them how much they mean to you!

We all like to think of our pets as ‘one of the family’ and as such, like to make them feel loved and at home. Some accessories, like a collar or a hutch, are basic necessities, whilst others, such as a multitude of outfits or a spa-style activity, could be seen as slightly less than ‘essential’.

Here at NAWT, we thought it would be interesting to look back at how pet accessories have changed over the last five decades…

The week of April 1-7 every year is an opportunity to educate pet owners on the importance of cleaning up after their dogs - inform them of the hazards of dog poop to human health, and the environmental risks it poses when left unattended.

The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws) estimates that pet pooches produce over 4.4 billion pounds of waste per year (2 billion litres).

This is the story of ‘Britain’s Unluckiest Dog’, which starts in 2016 when Zen arrived at the Trindledown centre in Berkshire.

Zen had previously been living with a local family, but sadly they had to say goodbye to him because their young child developed an allergy to this delightful dog.

However, it was soon clear that Zen was going through some stress, when it was discovered by the animal care team that he was eating his way through the pen doors and walls (which are made of wood in the Berkshire centre).

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!
