Garfield is a 12 year old (approx) ginger boy, who will see out the rest of his days with us in long term foster care because he is FIV positive. Unfortunately Garfield developed a tumour on his paw, with a nasty hole in his skin that would never heal. We have recently paid for surgery to give him a chance to beat the cancer. This has meant removal of a couple of his toes. The operation and associated medication and nursing required for a cat with a compromised immune system is likely to total around £800. The good news is that due to the generosity of supporters and friends, Garfield has now had the operation and begun his recovery. He is already getting around happily in his foster home albeit with a limp. He will be going in tomorrow to have his dressing changed. Although we have managed to raise enough to pay for some of his treatment, we are still a little bit short so if you feel you are able to help, we would be most grateful.

CALLING ALL RABBIT & OTHER SMALL ANIMAL FOSTERERS
HAWS are aiming to restart rabbit and small animal fostering. Would you be able to look after a rabbit, guinea pigs or other small animal? Do you have experience and time and perhaps an empty hutch or cage? We are looking to get a group of fosterers ready so we can take the strain off other small animal rescue charities. With Easter soon upon us there are likely to be many unwanted impulse-bought rabbits needing new homes, and small animals often suffer when the children they are bought for lose interest. We can support with food and bedding if required (unless you are able to provide this as an additional donation to our cause) and we will be on hand for advice. We will pay for veterinary attention that our animals need. If this is of interest and you live in out catchment area please email us now to discuss further.
RAISE MONEY WITH GOLDEN GIVING
If you would like to organise an event to raise money for us – anything from a sponsored parachute jump or a marathon perhaps, you could set it up via our Golden Giving fundraising form, and then ask all your friends to sponsor you.
For more information on Golden Giving please click here.
SELL FOR HAWS ON EBAY
If you have any good quality items which you’d like to donate, it would save us a lot of time if you could put them on Ebay and sell them for us. Hounslow Animal Welfare Society is on Ebay‘s list of charities so you can choose to donate from 10-100% to us. If you are not sure how to do this you can always email us for advice by clicking here.
PLEASE NEUTER YOUR PETS!
The number of unwanted pets in our area is becoming endemic. HAWS have a strict non-destruction policy (no matter how old or how much medical help our cats may need) but that does mean that our resources are often overstretched.
One of the key reasons for the huge number of unwanted pets and strays is that people are not neutering their pets.

We’re grateful to those who kindly donate money for our animals. Also to everyone else who helps in any way. We really do appreciate everything you do, whether re-homing, fostering, transporting, fundraising – or even just spreading the word about our charity.
Our calendar features photos of current and past HAWS rescue cats and kittens.
We also have some lovely Christmas cards now available.
Please note that we now have very limited stocks of all these and most of them are distributed around our vets. If you are thinking of placing an order soon please contact us so that we can get some more printed.
