While we love all our animals here at NAWT – we’ve decided to dedicate the whole of August to our feline friends.

Our Clawgust campaign will celebrate all things cat – still the UK’s third most popular pet after fish and dogs (with a cat population of 7.5m*).

Throughout the month we will be sharing information and ideas based on several themes to deepen our knowledge about cats, as well as some interesting facts and tips.

For our #CLAWGUST campaign, we have invited cat owners to tell us their re-homing stories.

To spread awareness and celebrate our beautiful rescue cats, we’re going to bring you a weekly success story!

This week we hear from Sophie, who adopted her gorgeous black and white cat Harry last year.

Sophie and her parents rescued two cats from NAWT Hertfordshire when she was a child in 1994, so when she decided to get her own, she came back to us!

Rehoming moments captured at NAWT’s Hertfordshire rescue centre will soon form the stories shown in Petplan’s new advert for their sponsorship of Channel 4’s new show Animal Rescue Live: Supervet Special.

Two film crews spent the day capturing heartwarming moments of pets being taken home for the first time by their new owners.

The National Animal Welfare Trust has welcomed comments from Conservative MP Michael Gove, calling for tougher sanctions for animal cruelty.

Mr Gove, now Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, raised the issue in the House of Commons last week, stating a change in the law is needed.

Innocent animals continue to be abused in full knowledge that the courts can only issue a maximum penalty of six months behind bars.
