Very few people are lucky enough to witness the natural beauty of an animal giving birth. Even in animal rescue, it’s not something all the staff and volunteers get to see, so those who do feel very blessed.

Most people to witness such a magical moment normally have a little bit of warning in advance of the event. This definitely wasn’t the case for poor Mr Smith when he walked into his kitchen one cold November afternoon, to discover Skipper, a cat completely unknown to him at the time, giving birth to a litter of four kittens.

Love our cause? Would you like to help us raise money so we can continue helping abandoned and homeless animals? Take on a challenge this year as a fab way to raise money for us!

Our work wouldn't be possible without our committed fundraisers. People like Matt Dorber, who ran the London Marathon last year and Tracey Hunt who took part in a 'Rat Race' challenge. Together they have rasied thousands of pounds for our cause.

We currently have places in a cycling challenge and a 10K run, please see all the details below:

Having survived unspeakable cruelty from an early age, Bambi is one courageous little fighter who is due a change in luck.

Having been cruelly thrown from a moving van on a busy road, Bambi came to us filthy, severely underweight, with sores all over her little body. The memory of her poorly, mistreated and malnourished figure is one that will haunt the staff and volunteers, who initially welcomed her, for a long time.

Are you prepared for another Blue Monday to sweep the nation as 'the most depressing day of the year'?

Monday, January 21, (or the third Monday of the month), has been dubbed ‘Blue Monday’ after a US survey revealed it was the saddest day of the year.

To blow off those January blues, we are asking people to consider signing up to volunteer with homeless animals!

Jackie de Friez, centre manager of NAWT Watford said: “Spending time with pets can have many health benefits.
