Our Hayle centre carries on the work started by Molly Wyatt, who died in July 1996. Her name was synonymous with animal rescue in Cornwall and the Trust is proud to be able to continue the work.

We also have a local charity shop in Hayle and can accept donations directly at the centre.  In addition to charity shop merchandise, we always welcome any type of cat/dog bedding as well as toys and treats.

Why not visit us today?

We offer both day and overnight boarding at our Cornwall centre. Find out more below:NAWT Cornwall Day & Overnight Boarding 

You can also hire our secure paddock, ideal for exercising your dog, or simply as a safe place to practice recall.
