Lottery funds ensure animals are kept happy and comfortable at re homing centre

The National Animal Welfare Trust Berkshire rescues and rehomes elderly animals, both domestic and further field.  They have a small team of dedicated staff, one of which is Jon (pictured below). Jon works tirelessly with each and every animal, is always the first to teach the animal’s new tricks and loves playing with the dogs in the dog runs. He is currently training for a 10K charity run in aid of the charity!  He is always the first to teach the animals new tricks and loves playing with the dogs in the dog runs. 

What also makes their rehoming centre special is that they are open to the public.  Local residents and visitors can pop in to see the animals and have lunch at their onsite café.  The National Animal Welfare Trust work closely with the community in projects and outreach at the centre. 

They are currently building an education building and play area that will completely wheelchair accessible and will allow all members of our community to enjoy a farm visit.

Asked why they have signed up to raise funds through the West Berkshire Lottery, Ellie Humphrey’s from the Berkshire branch said:

“Every lottery ticket helps us buy daily supplies that keep the animals happy and comfortable, from poo bags to vet drugs for ageing limbs.”
