We are thrilled to announce that Petplan® has now given over £500,000 to NAWT since the beginning of our partnership back in 2001. It’s a true testament to the great partnership between NAWT and Petplan®.

By providing every dog, cat and rabbit we rehome with four weeks free insurance, Petplan supports our centres to give every pet rehomed the best start when leaving NAWT’s care.

This £500,000 has brought many benefits to help the animals in our care and allows us to ensure that our animals are cared for in the best possible way.

While summer is traditionally the time for travelling, more and more Brits are opting for a ‘staycation’ so they can enjoy the company of their pets. If you’re choosing to holiday with your canine companion this summer, here are some fun tips and hacks to keep your pet safe and happy during your travels.

1. Bring a doggy brush!
Every dog owner knows this, because dog hair gets everywhere! It will make keeping your accommodation hair-free much easier and it’s always a good idea to groom your pampered pooch during the warmer weather.

Today we’re launching a special summer appeal to find a new home for two very sweet dogs.

Currently at our Hayle centre, Amber and Ruby are so closely bonded that they need to be homed as a pair.

They have had some interest, but they simply must be kept together, and two dogs is a huge commitment. 

Louise Clarke-Payne, Hayle centre manager, said: "It would be very unfair to split these dogs up as they adore each other.

“It would cause both of these sweet girls very unnecessary and serious stress if they weren’t re-homed together."

This dog behaviour month, we’d like to start a new conversation about an old topic. What do you think when you see a muzzled dog?

Muzzles are one of the most essential pieces of safety equipment we have in dog behaviour, and yet their appearance and the judgements associated with them sometimes prevent people using them, sometimes with disastrous consequences.

Did you know pets can also suffer from sun burn? Many pet owners are unaware of the skin risks pets can suffer when out in the sun.

If you’re planning an outdoor trip with your dog, or if your cat regularly spends time outside, make sure to protect them from the harsh UV rays of the sun.

Just like humans, canines and felines are susceptible to painful burns and potential skin cancer. 

Which pets get sunburned?
