From two minutes to two years – how long should it really take for your new pet to settle in at home?
Last month we asked our supporters how long it took for their rescue pet to settle in, and the range is outstanding.
Laura Rosenthal, who re-homed Nellie from our Watford centre said it took her a long time to fully be at home. She said: “My gorgeous Nellie, a rescue lurcher who I met whilst volunteering at Watford, has taken a full year to really bond properly.
For many of us it's far too soon to be thinking about Christmas - but our staff are wondering if the animals they see every day, will be spending the festive period with them too.
Please come down to one of our winter events and help us raise much-needed funds to give our animals a fab Christmas!

NAWT supports the bold and wide-reaching EFRA report on ‘Controlling Dangerous Dogs’ which is published today following an inquiry launched in May this year. The EFRA Committee concludes that current Dangerous Dogs legislation is failing to protect the public and has called for a full-scale review of existing dog control strategies.
Fudge the overweight terrier
Gorgeous Fudge, who came into our care almost 10kg overweight, has found his forever home! His new family will help him on his journey to full health and we can't wait to hear about all the adventures he goes on!
Aza the heartbroken bunny
Oscar the cat came into the care of our Clacton centre back in June because his previous owners were moving, but weren't able to take him with them.
He proved himself to be a very friendly boy to our staff, and he loved nothing more than his cuddles with the cattery team.
After his routine health checks and vaccinations, it became apparent that Oscar also needed a dental to remove one of his canine teeth.
Unfortunately, after the removal of his tooth, the bone was exposed so he had to undergo a second dental operation to rectify this.
