This winter, NAWT have been given a wonderful opportunity to raise even more funds for the homeless and abandoned animals in our care.
A match-funding website The Big Give, have offered us the support of a champion funder for their Christmas Challenge campaign who, along with some of our major donors, has created a matched funding pot.
A woman who had a ‘crippling’ fear of dogs, has overcome her phobia after being invited to visit NAWT Berkshire.
Nima Maasoumi was so afraid of dogs she would run away whenever she saw one, or scream if they approached her.
Nima, originally from Iran, was not sure when she developed the phobia, but it became so debilitating she decided to ask our centre near Great Shefford, for help.
From two minutes to two years – how long should it really take for your new pet to settle in at home?
Last month we asked our supporters how long it took for their rescue pet to settle in, and the range is outstanding.
Laura Rosenthal, who re-homed Nellie from our Watford centre said it took her a long time to fully be at home. She said: “My gorgeous Nellie, a rescue lurcher who I met whilst volunteering at Watford, has taken a full year to really bond properly.
For many of us it's far too soon to be thinking about Christmas - but our staff are wondering if the animals they see every day, will be spending the festive period with them too.
Please come down to one of our winter events and help us raise much-needed funds to give our animals a fab Christmas!

NAWT supports the bold and wide-reaching EFRA report on ‘Controlling Dangerous Dogs’ which is published today following an inquiry launched in May this year. The EFRA Committee concludes that current Dangerous Dogs legislation is failing to protect the public and has called for a full-scale review of existing dog control strategies.
