Founded in 1971 the National Animal Welfare Trust is a rescue and re-homing charity with centres in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cornwall, Berkshire and Essex.
The Trust is home to a surprisingly wide variety of animals, primarily dogs and cats, but also farm animals, horses, donkeys, ducks and small domestic pets too. It provides food, warmth and veterinary treatment to those animals in great need of care, prior to finding them their forever home.
The National Animal Welfare Trust was set up to find homes for unwanted dogs, cats and other domestic animals. Once in the Trust’s care no healthy animal is put to sleep, however long its stay. The Trust has five Rescue Centres: the Watford centre based at Tylers Way, Watford by pass, the Bedfordshire centre at Glebe Farm, Aspley Guise, the Berkshire Centre at Trindledown Farm, near Great Shefford, the Cornish Centre at Wheal Alfred Farm, Hayle and the Essex Centre at Clacton-on-Sea. They also have three Charity shops in Woburn Sands, Hayle, and Watford.
