Ebony & Harris
Ebony and Harris were two long-term residents at NAWT’s Hertfordshire centre. After spending many years in the care of the Trust waiting for the right owners to come along, they finally went home in March 2014 with long term supporters Martin and Lindsey Joyce.

2014 started very badly for poor Stanley. This frightened Staffordshire Bull Terrier was found tied to a park bench in the cold, pouring rain on January 6. The most shocking thing about poor Stan was his physical appearance – his body was bony and his muscles were wasting away due to malnutrition.

Harry the Terrier cross didn’t spend long at our Hertfordshire centre before being rehomed by Eastenders star Luisa Bradshaw-White.

"Its now been 6 weeks since we took Toby home. He is a great dog, picks up new commands pretty easily - he loves having his chest rubbed and goes all dreamy then flops his head on your lap. Wakes up at 5.30 am and we let him out for a wee in the garden - then he goes back to bed for half and hour....

Paris the Staffordshire Bull Terrier arrived at our Hertfordshire centre having been found by the local dog warden abandoned in a hotel car park.

Two year old Ron was handed over to the National Animal Welfare Trust after the owner could no longer afford to look after him.

Lena Rabbit
This lionhead rabbit was brought in as a stray. Although in good condition, she preferred her own company to others.
