Rescue is our favourite breed
Rescue Is Our Favourite Breed
At Battersea, we believe rescue pets are the best pets. With character, quirks...
Ready to be loved
One in four dogs and cats are rescues. They come in all shapes and sizes and refuse to be defined by their past. At Battersea we think it’s time to celebrate rescue and show that even underdogs can be top cats. To look beyond pedigree and start appreciating personality; stop focussing on age and instead see character. If you want a unique, loving pet there’s really one breed for you, and that’s Rescue.Read more
