2018 was a huge year for NAWT, and thanks to your support and generosity it was one of our most successful to date. You’ve helped us achieve so many things throughout the last 12 months, but here are our honourable mentions.

A former NAWT cat that was left clinging to life after being shot in the mouth has been crowned the PDSA’s Pet Survivor of the Year. 

Poor Dexter needed emergency surgery after he suffered a broken jaw, a hole in his palette and a severed tongue earlier this year.

Despite his injuries, Dexter managed to drag himself home to Illogan but remained poorly for many weeks.

Owner Ruth Lewis was heartbroken to find Dexter bleeding and struggling to breathe after the attack in July.

It’s not just people we miss at Christmas, pets are a large part of our lives, and very much become part of our family and they can leave a big space when they are no longer there. 

The loss of a pet affects everyone differently. If you have lost a pet, and would like someone to speak to, we are here. 

At NAWT we understand that the loss of a pet, whether they've been rehomed, lost, stolen, or sadly passed away, can be extremely difficult.

Rufus is about to spend his second Christmas in rescue. It may sound like the start of a sad tale, but thanks to your support we are here to make sure pets like Rufus are well cared for, not just at Christmas, but every day.

At NAWT, we know pets thrive on routine, and this is why we implemented the training scheme Open Paw, because it helps homeless animals settle in to our care and also prepares them for life in a new home. 

Christmas Day will start like any other for Rufus the Jack Russell Terrier, who is still waiting for a loving home.
