Earlier this year, the NAWT Clacton centre received a distraught telephone call from a family whose young autistic son had accidentally injured their kitten’s eye.
In the summer of last year during a house raid as part of a drugs investigation, police discovered an exhausted, withdrawn and frightened 11-year-old Bull Mastiff.
Love is found in all sorts of places, including your local animal rescue centre! We often see first-hand the love that blooms between pet and owner. Sometimes it happens straight away, and sometimes it takes a few weeks.
We want to take this opportunity to celebrate the loving bond between pet and owner! We asked our wonderful supporters on Facebook to tell us their stories about their rehomed pet. Thank you to everyone who told us their love story, all of the comments were lovely to read! Here are a few below:
Malnourished, frightened and covered in sores, Bambi was in a bad way upon arrival into rescue. The worst of her ailments was a congenital disorder that had been left untreated since birth. This disorder left her knee joints sitting outside of their sockets and the pain of the condition had gotten so bad for Bambi that she was scared to put weight on her back legs.
It’s no secret this last year has been tough at NAWT.
We’re losing one of our beloved rescue centres and the rest are facing a challenging future, made more difficult by the rising cost of the National Living Wage (NLW) in 2020.
