And another thing: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home aims never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help. They reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners through our Lost Dogs & Cats Line or care for them until new homes can be found for them, giving them shelter and the highest standards of kennelling and veterinary care.

It’s a fact: Since it was founded, Battersea has rescued, reunited and rehomed over 3.1 million dogs and cats.

Why they need your support: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home receives no central government funding towards the care of its dogs and cats and relies on the generosity and support of the public to help care for lost and abandoned dogs & cats.
