Residents in Berkhamsted are being encouraged to visit an animal welfare centre who are much more than a rescue home for animals.
The National Animal Welfare Trust near Watford is a registered charity that receives no state aid with all facilities funded by the generosity of the public.
One of the many reasons to visit the trust is their daily open day between 11am and 4pm where they invite people to find out more about their animals, the welfare they offer and their interactive rescue centre.
That interactive experience includes the chance to meet and feed the animals.
There is also a cafe on site, called Cotton Tail’s, with hot and cold food, sweet treats and friendly volunteers to welcome you.
Rosemary Wenzerul is a volunteer at the centre and explains why it’s much more than a rescue home.
She said: “Our centre is a charity and receives no state aid – all facilities are funded by the generosity of the public.
“To help keep the centre running there are various open days, fun dog shows, animal petting days and more to raise much needed funds.
“In addition, we offer pet boarding services so if you are thinking about booking your next holiday in the sun or snow, why not book your furry friends in with us.
“You get a holiday knowing your helping and supporting the animals in our care, we also now have a brand-new cat section.
“Here at the National Animal Welfare Trust Hertfordshire we are committed to animal welfare and making sure, all the animals at our centre are cared for and loved.”
