What a day our Clacton centre had hosting their exciting summer fete and fun dog show! Events like these enable us to raise money for the charity, so we can continue helping as many animals as possible!
The day raised a fantastic £2,058.11!
There is nothing more rewarding than when one of our animals finally finds their perfect forever home, even more so when that animal has been in our care for a long time. It is the ultimate job satisfaction!
Milo arrived at NAWT in Clacton from another charity who find rescue space for dogs in pounds. When he jumped off the back of the van, he was a bit of a bull in a china shop, perhaps a little too enthusiastic to get to know everyone and everything!
Beautiful black and white girl Cfur is looking for a forever home.
Although she can be quite timid, Cfur, 4, is very loving and enjoys a gentle fuss.
Sadly this gorgeous girl has found it hard to settle into cattery life and she spends a lot of time hiding, which means nobody gets to see her gorgeous face when they visit our Hertfordshire centre!
The animal staff have worked with Cfur to help her gain confidence and she now enjoys playing, a mini fishing rod toy is her favourite.
Cat lover Amanda is sure that her moggy Brooklyn chose her – not the other way around.
To celebrate #CLAWGUST and spread awareness of how important it is to consider a rescue animal, we asked Amanda to tell us her story.
She explains: “I visited the NAWT Hertfordshire cattery and she was hiding the first time I went near her.
“The next minute, this beautiful black and white cat came out, tail up, whiskers and ears forward looking up at me with her big green eyes and she was the most beautiful thing ever!
It was our absolute pleasure to host US dog trainer and Open Paw originator Kelly Gorman Dunbar at our Hertfordshire centre this summer.
Kelly visited the UK to lead a week of practical training courses, organised by Dog and Bone, to show kennel owners and other rescue and rehoming charities the benefits of using Open Paw in their own shelters.
