The National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) began life in 1971 as part of the work undertaken by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), when the specific plight of dogs and puppies in this area was highlighted. The National Animal Welfare Trust initially sought to stop the sale of dogs and puppies at markets so they would not end up in laboratories, and the NAWT's work has expanded over the years to run dog rehoming centres across the south of England. Today, the organisation operates dog homes in Watford, Somerset, Berkshire, Cornwall and Essex as well as running a number of charity shops across various UK regions and it relies on support through donations, fundraising initiatives and the help of its many invaluable volunteers.
Through our links with various charities, we like to highlight the work of local causes like the National Animal Welfare Trust as well as more well-known national and international campaigns and groups, and by using our many online discount codes and offers, you can help contribute to these worthy causes. We donate 20% of our profits to a different charity every month (decided by our regular charity polls where site users can vote for one of three nominated causes), so if the NAWT is a cause you know well, or are interested in helping now that you’ve found out what they’re all about, why not nominate the NAWT for a future poll, or vote for them when you see the charity featured? Whether you’re a dog lover, are local to one of the areas where this charity operates, or are just looking for another deserving cause to offer your support to, keep the National Animal Welfare Trust in mind.
