When Petplan asked to come and film rehoming moments for their Animal Rescue Live ad bumpers, we had a fantastic response from the people rehoming pets that week.

Among them was Jamie and Rolo, who travelled back to Watford for the filming just days after the brindle lurcher went home. 

Jamie and fiancée Dawn knew that a rescue dog would complete the family. Having children Taylor 15, Jack, 12, and Xaine, nearly 10, at home and another three older children regularly visiting, their ideal family pet was originally a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

As part of our #CLAWGUST campaign, we’re featuring a weekly success story! This week Becca tells us about why she rescued Chelsea.

Becca re-homed her beautiful cat Chelsea almost five years ago – and she’s thrilled she chose a rescue cat.

“Chelsea must be around 10 now. She has relaxed, and she has become ever so loving over the years,” Becca explains.

“I have seen her come from being shy and scared to being bold and craving attention and love all the time.

Our #CLAWGUST featured cat this week is from our Cornwall centre – Flint is a beautiful grey tabby and desperately needs a forever home.

He arrived at the centre earlier this year and came in as a stray, because of this we don't know much about him, but we do know he has a lot of love to give!

Although he is a bit nervous, Flint will come round if you take the time to softly talk to him (treats can do the trick too).

He not only has the most beautiful coat and striking eyes, he will also provide hours of entertainment as he loves playing.

Did you enjoy tonight’s episode of Animal Rescue Live: Supervet Special? Who spotted Felix in the Petplan ad going home with mum and son Mary and Basil?

Fluffy Felix was spotted by Basil’s 17-year-old brother, Ignatius, while he was working his Saturday job as an animal carer at the National Animal Welfare Trust’s Hertfordshire rehoming centre.

Have you heard about our new revolutionary programme for cats?

Open Paw is transforming cattery life, and with help from experts, we want to get cats in rescue confident enough to greet visitors and allow potential rehomers to see how beautiful they are!

The most noticeable thing we wanted to change was the cats feeling as though they needed to hide in their beds, away from view.
