NAWT Comments on the Government Response to the EFRA Committee report on Controlling Dangerous Dogs.

The Government’s response to EFRA’s Dangerous Dogs report is published today.

NAWT welcomes the fact that the Government is committed to gaining an insight into the detailed anatomy of a dog attack, rather than just focusing on the breed or type of dog.

National Animal Welfare Trust believes that no responsible dog owner wants their pet to harm or kill livestock and yet seemingly innocent family pets are capable of chasing, injuring or killing livestock as news reports reveal. 
This week we are sharing advice tips and real-life stories to help you ensure you keep both your dog and livestock safe.
It is a criminal offence for a dog to worry livestock, that is where a dog barks, chases or bites a farm animal.

Christmas in a rescue centres like the NAWT, sees the arrival of many things. From toys and treats for the animals to gifts for the staff, sadly we also see the arrival of unwanted and abandoned animals. 

Throughout the festive period, it was business as usual within our walls as we welcomed new faces into our care. 

In the build up to Christmas, our Clacton centre welcomed two 11-week-old Jack Russell cross puppies.

Very few people are lucky enough to witness the natural beauty of an animal giving birth. Even in animal rescue, it’s not something all the staff and volunteers get to see, so those who do feel very blessed.

Most people to witness such a magical moment normally have a little bit of warning in advance of the event. This definitely wasn’t the case for poor Mr Smith when he walked into his kitchen one cold November afternoon, to discover Skipper, a cat completely unknown to him at the time, giving birth to a litter of four kittens.

Love our cause? Would you like to help us raise money so we can continue helping abandoned and homeless animals? Take on a challenge this year as a fab way to raise money for us!

Our work wouldn't be possible without our committed fundraisers. People like Matt Dorber, who ran the London Marathon last year and Tracey Hunt who took part in a 'Rat Race' challenge. Together they have rasied thousands of pounds for our cause.

We currently have places in a cycling challenge and a 10K run, please see all the details below:
