Over Christmas, Richard Harrington MP appealed to Watford residents for donations to the National Animal Welfare Trust's (NAWT) Shoe Box Appeal.
Watford's National Animal Welfare Trust is one of the UK's top animal welfare charities, and they care for hundreds of animals in our area every year.
Over 50 local residents donated shoe boxes filled with food, toys and blankets. The Watford Observer also kindly donated blankets for the abandoned animals!
Richard Harrington MP said:
“Christmas is a time to think of those less fortunate, including abandoned animals who need our protection. I’d been in touch with the NAWT’s local team, and they told me that they were desperate for food, toys and blankets for their rescue pets. I’m so grateful to everyone who kindly donated, meaning that the volunteers can continue to care for abandoned animals in Watford.”
