Tam the five-year-old Labrador cross came into our Somerset centre in July last year. 

A lovely, natured and extremely gentle dog, Tam soon became adored by all who met him.

Although very stressed in the presence of young children, the reason for his relinquishment, Tam was a model resident and often taken off site to visit local companies and resdidents.

However not long after he stepped into the centre, Tam was rushed to the vets due to showing signs he was very uncomfortable walking and even standing for long periods.

Lovely Shelly is sadly no stranger to rescue. Originally arriving at the NAWT Berkshire centre back in October 2015, Shelly spent just over a year in their care waiting for the perfect home to come along. 

As an independent cat with a lovely room of her own to enjoy and lots of people to spoil her, Shelly enjoyed her time in the rescue centre. But nothing can really compare to the security and more tranquil routine of a happy home.

Tia the four-year-old Yorkshire Terrier came into the care of our Somerset branch last October.

It was discovered she had very limited eyesight and this caused her to be easily startled by loud noises and fast movements.

Extremely nervous in kennels, it was decided Tia wasn’t fit to stay in the centre, so a loving foster home was arranged until she found her forever family.

After settling in and seeing our vet on site, we soon took her to a specialist who discovered poor Tia had no sight in either eye.

I have been late for work on several occasions because I have been knocking on doors desperately trying to find the owners of a cat tragically killed by a car and lying by the side of the road.

Awful as the news is, I would prefer that the owners knew as soon as possible, rather than have to go through the trauma of trying to find out what happened to their cat.
