Bulldog - Minnie
Published on November 13, 2019 by James Lindsay

Five-year-old Bulldog Minnie had been subjected to a lifetime of breeding litters as a money-making machine, before her owner took her to the vet with a leg complaint. After discovering how much it would cost to cure Minnie’s condition, her owner instructed the vet to put Minnie to sleep and left her there.

Shocked by the extreme decision to destroy an otherwise healthy young Bulldog, the vet got in touch with NAWT to see if anything could be done to save this beautiful girl’s life and cure her painful condition.


Black Cat - Poppy
Published on November 11, 2019 by James Lindsay

Poppy arrived at NAWT in July as a frightened, timid little stray cat after she was found and handed in by a caring member of the local community.

As a stray, we can only estimate Poppy’s age and believe her to be around 5 years old. During her first few weeks at NAWT, Poppy would often hide away at the back of her pen when people approached, very withdrawn and scared.


Horse - Inca

Emaciated and neglected, Inca arrived at NAWT following a life of maltreatment and hardship.

At 28 years old, Inca was removed from his owner by another rescue charity, when they found him so malnourished that he could barely stand.

Sadly, due to an ongoing court case with his owner and the fact that he wasn’t in a fit state to travel anywhere, Inca could not be responsibly rehomed to a loving family and was therefore destined to live out the rest of his life in rescue.


Dog - Robin

Robin arrived at NAWT earlier this year, when he and his three littermates were dumped outside the gate of our HULA centre and left to fend for themselves.

The animal care team made the distressing discovery of four incredibly sick puppies when they arrived to work that morning. It was clear to see all four puppies were fighting for their lives, and battling something very serious. An urgent vet check confirmed everyone’s worst fears; every puppy had parvovirus and they were so sick, there was a very big chance they may all die overnight.


Dog - Lulu

Before she arrived at NAWT, Lulu was found wandering the streets, abandoned and alone in an awful condition.

An initial welfare assessment raised concerns about her matted fur, incredibly sore skin and a terrible flea infestation. There was no choice but to remove all the hair on her body so that her skin could be efficiently treated. At this stage, it also became clear that Lulu had mammary tumours that would need removing.
