Losing a pet can have a devastating effect on an owner’s life in many ways. Feelings of intense grief, loneliness and bewilderment can affect long-term health and wellbeing.

While it’s a subject many people either won’t want to think about, let alone discuss, here at NAWT we take a very different view thanks to our partnership with ALLY.

When the time came to chose a new rescue cat, Charlotte was like most of us, in that she wanted to a cuddly lap cat. But then she saw Nala, and everything changed.

The fearful, lonely cat was going to be a difficult animal to rehome, simply because she had trouble getting close to humans. Charlotte took one look at Nala’s beautiful face and immediately felt she should be the one to give her the safe, happy, home she needed to rebuild her trust in people again.

Until recently, it was thought that rabbits were introduced to Britain from France, after the Norman Conquest around the 11th Century.

Whilst they were farmed for their fur and meat, many sources suggest that some of the medieval gentry women started to keep rabbits as pets.

Socks is an English springer spaniel, who came to our Hertfordshire centre in early January 2021 as a stray.

During his initial assessment on arrival, Socks showed little to no interest in toys or food, and was shrinking away from human contact.

However, he showed a flicker of interest in Shelley, a Junior Animal Care Leader, and herself an experienced Spaniel owner. Shelley was allocated to work with Socks for his first few days to help him settle.
