Rehome a Dog With Battersea

There are many reasons to choose and rehome a dog from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Here are just a few...

Not all rescue dogs have behaviour issues 

Many of the animals arrive at the Home through no fault of their own, often as a result of the owner moving abroad, a baby on the horizon or a relationship breaking up.

All of our animals receive a detailed behaviour and temperament assessment

Our behaviourists are highly experienced and knowledgeable about specific breed traits, giving new owners complete peace of mind.

How much does it cost?

Our rehoming fee is £135 for dogs (over 6 months) or £165 for puppies (under 6 months).

The cost includes microchipping, initial vaccinations, a collar, identification tag and lead. In many cases your animal will have been neutered.

Each rehomed dog will be covered with four weeks’ free Petplan insurance so that right from the start, your dog will be covered for accidents and new illnesses as they settle in to their new surroundings.

When our rehomers extend this free cover to a full policy Petplan will donate 10% of the cost of the premium to Battersea, as well as 10% of the cost of the premium each year the policy is renewed.

This 10% donation isn’t only available to people rehoming an animal from Battersea. Visit for a quote and more information about all Petplan policies for your pet. You can also call 0800 980 0500 quoting ‘BDCH’ and 10% of your premium will be donated to Battersea.

We are here for you

Our aim is to match you and your existing pets with a perfect companion using our computer 'matching system' and the experience of our expert rehomers. We recognise that everyone's situation is different.

Every rehomed dog has a full veterinary check

This includes worming, flea treatment and vaccinations. All animals rehomed from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home may return to the clinic for free treatment for conditions relating to their stay at the Home for up to three months. In addition to this they will be microchipped with a free ID disc, collar and lead, neutered (or come with a neutering voucher), and insured for four weeks with Pet Plan.

We have many breed dogs as well as mongrels, in fact breed dogs now outnumber mongrels by ten to one. From Chihuahas to Great Danes, we have dogs of all shapes and sizes.

You can teach an old dog new tricks 

In fact, we spend a lot of time training the dogs in our care.
