Opie the Staffie cross is a lovely, shy girl who needs a fairly quiet home.

Although she can be nervous around strangers, once she gets to know you she is very 'daft' and loving!

Adored by NAWT Cornwall staff, Opie has great fun playing with toys and interactive games, but her favourite thing is having a bath!

This girlie is looking for an extra special home without children as she lacked socialisation as a puppy, and becomes very nervous around them.

Gorgeous black cat Jonty is six-years-old and has been at our Hertfordshire centre for over a year.

He’s an intelligent moggy who loves food, playing and having all the attention!

Jonty likes to go on adventures and explores new environments with confidence, but doesn’t like being picked up.

Because he likes all the attention to himself, it is recommended that Jonty be the only pet in the house.

This gorgeous feline used to live with children who made him quite nervous, so it’s recommended that he is rehomed to a family where everyone is 14 and over.

Bert and Ernie are two wonderful characters who reside at our Berkshire centre. They arrived at the centre in 2012, after having been originally purchased as micro pigs, but they are definitely not micro pigs!

Clyde hasn’t had the best start in life but deserves the best future a dog can dream of. We believe Clyde to be around 2-3 years old and is a true Heinz 57 as they say!

Clyde came to NAWT from another charity that work to rescue dogs from stray pounds so because of this we know very little about him.

What we do know is that Clyde spent some time wandering around the Welsh Valleys before finally being caught by the dog warden and has since spent some time in different kennels, before finding a place here at the NAWT in Clacton.

"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.
