First up was James, who started working for the charity in August this year as Marketing Assistant. He does the local Abbots Langley Tough Ten every year, where runners have to overcome steep hills as part of the 10k distance.
Committed fundraisers make our work possible. People like Karl, who raised over £900 for NAWT by running the Asics London 10k in July 2019, he was delighted to raise money for a cause he is so passionate about.
Play a firework CD
Get your kitty used to the noise
You can get firework noises on CD, which can help your pet become acclimatised to the sound of fireworks. Putting on a CD before the noises start can help mask any unexpected bangs on November 5th. You can also find popular firework displays on YouTube (such as New Year celebrations) which can be used to help household pets get used to the noise and celebrations.
Our case study comes from James who lives in Watford, he explains how his former pets got him through difficult years as a teenager and young adult.
“When I was 10 years old I got obsessed with getting a dog, as lots of kids do! We found a cocker spaniel puppy who connected with us straight away, I remember him coming to say hello for the first time and I was in love instantly".
