Cat - Tom
Published on November 22, 2019 by James Lindsay

Before he arrived at NAWT, poor Tom had lost all of the fur around his neck, where his collar had been held on very tightly with a cable tie. Sadly, this wasn’t his biggest problem and things were about to get even worse for this lovely little cat.

Tom was suffering from a horrific ear infection, that had been left untreated for far too long. So long that the vet struggled to get drops into his ear, because his outer ear and ear canal were so terribly swollen.


Dog - Grace

Grace, a young wiry-haired Jack Russel Terrier, arrived at NAWT in severe shock and terrible pain following a nasty attack from another dog. She was covered with several bite marks and puncture wounds, with the most severe one opening up her entire back from shoulder to shoulder.

Grace required emergency surgery if she was going to survive the attack and was immediately rushed to the vet. Thankfully, the vet was able to perform lifesaving surgery, which left her with many battle scars but a whole life ahead of her to enjoy.


Dog - Cherry
Published on November 18, 2019 by James Lindsay

Cherry was only 9 months old when she arrived at NAWT. A miniature Chihuahua crossed with a Yorkshire Terrier, she was a tiny little thing and super cute.

However, young Cherry had a problem; she was heavily pregnant with four extremely large puppies, in comparison to her size. There was absolutely no way Cherry or the puppies were going to survive the full pregnancy; it would have killed all five of them. Unfortunately, Cherry’s pregnancy had to be terminated in order to save at least one life.

Sonny the pony was born at the NAWT HULA centre in 1986 and for almost 33 years he happily grazed the fields, watching all the comings and goings at the centre, and spending time with his friends.

Anyone who has spent time at the HULA centre over the last three decades will associate the farm with a greeting from gentle Sonny, and many supporters would look forward to spending time with this lovely boy when they paid a visit to Glebe Farm.


Bulldog - Minnie
Published on November 13, 2019 by James Lindsay

Five-year-old Bulldog Minnie had been subjected to a lifetime of breeding litters as a money-making machine, before her owner took her to the vet with a leg complaint. After discovering how much it would cost to cure Minnie’s condition, her owner instructed the vet to put Minnie to sleep and left her there.

Shocked by the extreme decision to destroy an otherwise healthy young Bulldog, the vet got in touch with NAWT to see if anything could be done to save this beautiful girl’s life and cure her painful condition.
