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.
So they made sure that Casey was comfortable by keeping handling to a minimum, as otherwise she would get very stressed, and would hiss and swipe at anyone who approached.
Once Casey had her kittens, the plan was to neuter and release her back to her colony. But although Casey was scared, as time went on, it became clear that she wasn’t actually behaving like a typical feral.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
