You'll also get to watch Battersea dogs and ex-residents showing off their talents in our exciting display team, and get to meet them afterwards.

The tours will be taking place every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 6th September - 4th November. Entry is a £2 donation.

Tours are on a first come, first served basis.

During really busy times you can visit our kennels and cattery by pre-booked appointment only. This is so we don't confuse our animals with too many people around them. You may be able to make a Rehoming appointment during your visit if you speak to our reception team when you arrive.

Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you to our Home.
