Dog - Socks
Published on March 15, 2021 by James Lindsay

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.


Cat - Casey
Published on March 10, 2021 by James Lindsay

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.


Dog - Ozzy

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.

Dog - Fluke
Published on February 22, 2021 by James Lindsay

I’m Fluke, and I’ve been a resident at NAWT’s Cornwall rehoming centre for nearly two years now.

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.
