As the national lockdown continues this week, the teams at your local NAWT are hoping to keep you entertained with the following virtual events:

NAWT Clacton

NAWT Clacton will be reaching out to their young supporters this week as they launch their 'Rescue Me' story and poem competition for 5 to 13 year olds. Inspired by Radio 2's 500 word competition, the centre is asking children to get their imaginations working and to come up with a story or poem about a rescue animal and the importance of giving them a second chance.

Keep in touch

As we enter week three of lockdown at NAWT, the teams in our rehoming centres are hard at work not just keeping things fun and interesting for the animals, but also trying to create exciting and inventive ways to keep in touch with you, our wonderful supporters!

So here’s the 2nd instalment of your weekly roundup, keeping you updated on all the ways you can stay in touch with your local NAWT and join in the virtual fun.

In line with government guidelines, every NAWT centre has had to cancel all fundraising events until further notice. This means they have lost a vital source of income at a time when they need the funding more than ever. On top of this they are each losing important touchpoints with their local community, with the centres having to close their gates to all visitors, and animal rehoming work being halted.

At difficult times like this, the strength of our community spirit is more important than ever.

We regret that following the latest government announcement, which effectively puts the country on lockdown, we now have to cease all our rehoming work, which will also severely restrict our intake capacity. All of this will have an impact on NAWT financially, but we will do our best to keep going and continue to care for the animals who depend on us.

The Coronavirus outbreak has thrown everyone’s world into a spin and during frightening and uncertain times like these, many of us are left with questions about our dependents and how we continue to care for them.

Most of us have emergency care plans in place for children and other human dependents, should we be taken ill. However, we don’t always remember to extend that precaution to our pets.

Pets are an important part of all our families, so NAWTs ‘Tails of the Unexpected’ care pack is designed to help you put an emergency care plan in place for your pets.
