Dog - Hertfordshire Kennels
Published on February 10, 2021 by James Lindsay

Having housed thousands of new arrivals over the years, the dog admission kennels at our Hertfordshire centre are really showing their age.

The first few days in a rescue centre are quite overwhelming for most dogs, as they start to adapt to life in a new environment. Dogs like Socks, who came to us as a stray, frightened and cowering, unsure of his new surroundings and people.

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…

Cat - Snowdrop
Published on February 02, 2021 by James Lindsay

This is Snowdrop, an adorable 10-year-old cat who for 8 years was a homeless stray, until he was found in extremely poor health and rescued. He needs your help to pay for the urgent surgery he underwent and to fund his ongoing care.

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.

The National Animal Welfare Trust pick up a lot of poop – 77,000 bags annually to be precise. It’s a tall order to keep things clean and tidy with that many dogs across five centres, which is why we’ve decided to help.

Beco will now be providing the NAWT with eco-friendly dog poop bags. As a vital animal welfare charity, we thought it’d be a good idea to help like-minded organisations who share the same values and, above all else, love pets just like us.
