Essex - Clacton

Our Clacton site was originally set up by Ann and Reg Sims in 1984 as Clacton Animal Aid.  It was entrusted to the National Animal Welfare Trust in October 2011 following the Sims retirement after 25 dedicated years of service.

We always welcome any type of dog/cat bedding as well as toys and treats for the animals in our care and also have a shop on site selling pet related items and giftware.
