Rufus is about to spend his second Christmas in rescue. It may sound like the start of a sad tale, but thanks to your support we are here to make sure pets like Rufus are well cared for, not just at Christmas, but every day.

At NAWT, we know pets thrive on routine, and this is why we implemented the training scheme Open Paw, because it helps homeless animals settle in to our care and also prepares them for life in a new home. 

Christmas Day will start like any other for Rufus the Jack Russell Terrier, who is still waiting for a loving home.
