Dog - Rocco
Published on September 13, 2019 by James Lindsay

Rocco is a gorgeous crossbreed with lots of impressive tricks up his sleeve. He walks nicely on the lead and travels very well.

So how is it that he is still waiting for a forever home at the Somerset centre, after 8 years? We simply don’t know.

The NAWT team adore his company, but he deserves the healthy routine and security of a loving family, who will appreciate those beautiful brown eyes.

Black Cat - Shelly
Published on September 13, 2019 by James Lindsay

Shelly is undoubtedly an unlucky cat, with more experience of rescue than a kitty deserves.

The NAWT Berkshire Centre welcomed her in October 2015, she then spent more than a year waiting for her forever home.

Thanks to lots of fuss from staff and volunteers at the centre, as well as a nice room of her own to enjoy, Shelly felt content and comfortable during her time there. But this can never compare to the security and more tranquil routine of a loving home.

This week (9th – 15th September) is Will Writing Week, also known as Remember a Charity Week, and the NAWT is determined to bust the myth that only wealthy people can leave a gift in their Will.

Those who leave a gift in their Will ensure the long-term future of our charity, as they provide 68% of our annual income.

You can continue supporting animals even beyond your last days, by leaving a legacy in your will for the animals at NAWT. The legacies we receive help thousands of homeless animals in need of shelter, TLC and veterinary help.

Our latest update from the owners of Arthur (formerly known as Rubin), is a complete contrast to the start of his story.

He almost lost his life, arriving at our HULA centre in Bedfordshire early in 2018, with a horrific wound after being found at the side of the A5. He was understandably scared, as well as very underweight and needed 10 stitches.

After making a remarkably quick recovery at the centre, his confidence slowly grew. Arthur got a lot of local publicity as a result of his story. A few months later, Karen saw his appeal online and immediately fell in love.

On Monday 2nd September employees, volunteers and supporters at National Animal Welfare Trust’s Heaven’s Gate Farm were made aware that the centre is at risk of closure.

The entire community has been devastated by this news, and the possibility that they could lose this much-loved and well-used facility. Kind messages of support and incredibly generous offers of help soon came flooding in following the announcement, and the team have been completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who are desperate to help.
