This week (9th – 15th September) is Will Writing Week, also known as Remember a Charity Week, and the NAWT is determined to bust the myth that only wealthy people can leave a gift in their Will.

Those who leave a gift in their Will ensure the long-term future of our charity, as they provide 68% of our annual income.

You can continue supporting animals even beyond your last days, by leaving a legacy in your will for the animals at NAWT. The legacies we receive help thousands of homeless animals in need of shelter, TLC and veterinary help.

Our latest update from the owners of Arthur (formerly known as Rubin), is a complete contrast to the start of his story.

He almost lost his life, arriving at our HULA centre in Bedfordshire early in 2018, with a horrific wound after being found at the side of the A5. He was understandably scared, as well as very underweight and needed 10 stitches.

After making a remarkably quick recovery at the centre, his confidence slowly grew. Arthur got a lot of local publicity as a result of his story. A few months later, Karen saw his appeal online and immediately fell in love.

On Monday 2nd September employees, volunteers and supporters at National Animal Welfare Trust’s Heaven’s Gate Farm were made aware that the centre is at risk of closure.

The entire community has been devastated by this news, and the possibility that they could lose this much-loved and well-used facility. Kind messages of support and incredibly generous offers of help soon came flooding in following the announcement, and the team have been completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who are desperate to help.

Hand Rearing Kittens
Published on August 28, 2019 by Rachel Mattioni

Raising kittens is difficult, time consuming, and sadly, not always successful. In an ideal world, kittens would always be raised by their mothers, who are best equipped to cater to the needs of their young. However, this sadly isn’t always possible and in some instances experienced animal carers have to step in and attempt to preserve the lives of these little ones. Kittens require feeding every two hours throughout the day and night and encouragement to pass faeces and urine.
