Bert and Ernie are two wonderful characters who reside at our Berkshire centre. They arrived at the centre in 2012, after having been originally purchased as micro pigs, but they are definitely not micro pigs!

Clyde hasn’t had the best start in life but deserves the best future a dog can dream of. We believe Clyde to be around 2-3 years old and is a true Heinz 57 as they say!

Clyde came to NAWT from another charity that work to rescue dogs from stray pounds so because of this we know very little about him.

What we do know is that Clyde spent some time wandering around the Welsh Valleys before finally being caught by the dog warden and has since spent some time in different kennels, before finding a place here at the NAWT in Clacton.

"Surely any home is better than staying there?"

These will be familiar words to anyone involved in rehoming rescue animals, particularly about the pets staying in a rescue centre for a while. The implication is that rescues are either being too picky about the proposed new home, or too specific about the needs of the animal. Unfortunately, rehoming is not that simple.

Our Hertfordshire centre had an amazing day on bank holiday Monday, hosting their annual summer open day! 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 £7,927.83! 

Alongisde stalls including a raffle, tombolas, doggy pic 'n' mix and a ball bobbing stall, we also hosted a dog show with more than 10 categories, judged by NAWT CEO Clare Williams!

No two days are ever alike when you work in an animal rescue centre. It’s one of the many reasons I love my job, every day, every person and every animal that passes through our doors is unique and it keeps the job exciting and challenging! Whilst there may be no typical day here, dogs love an established routine and we work hard to provide one that they can depend on.
