"Surely any home is better than staying there?"
These will be familiar words to anyone involved in rehoming rescue animals, particularly about the pets staying in a rescue centre for a while. The implication is that rescues are either being too picky about the proposed new home, or too specific about the needs of the animal. Unfortunately, rehoming is not that simple.
Our Hertfordshire centre had an amazing day on bank holiday Monday, hosting their annual summer open day! Events like these enable us to raise money for the charity, so we can continue helping as many animals as possible!
The day raised a fantastic £7,927.83!
Alongisde stalls including a raffle, tombolas, doggy pic 'n' mix and a ball bobbing stall, we also hosted a dog show with more than 10 categories, judged by NAWT CEO Clare Williams!

No two days are ever alike when you work in an animal rescue centre. It’s one of the many reasons I love my job, every day, every person and every animal that passes through our doors is unique and it keeps the job exciting and challenging! Whilst there may be no typical day here, dogs love an established routine and we work hard to provide one that they can depend on.
What a day our Clacton centre had hosting their exciting summer fete and fun dog show! Events like these enable us to raise money for the charity, so we can continue helping as many animals as possible!
The day raised a fantastic £2,058.11!
There is nothing more rewarding than when one of our animals finally finds their perfect forever home, even more so when that animal has been in our care for a long time. It is the ultimate job satisfaction!
Milo arrived at NAWT in Clacton from another charity who find rescue space for dogs in pounds. When he jumped off the back of the van, he was a bit of a bull in a china shop, perhaps a little too enthusiastic to get to know everyone and everything!
