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.

This is an important time for our small fluffy friends, from Monday 22nd March until Sunday 28th March 2021 is the first ever Guinea Pig Awareness Week!

It’s a great time to brush up on your knowledge of caring for guinea pigs, which is why we have created the below handy infographic. It’s loaded with useful advice such as enrichment, grooming, and bedding.

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.

Casey came into the care of NAWT Hertfordshire in October 2020 as a pregnant stray. The team were told she was feral/semi feral, and her behaviour at the time suggested that this was indeed accurate.

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.

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.

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.
