How we’re here for every dog and cat

About us

Battersea is here for every dog and cat, and has been since 1860. We believe that every dog and cat deserves the best. That's why we help every dog and cat in need – whether it's newly born or getting on, cute or cute in its own way. Find out more about our work and how we take care for over 7,000 animals every year.
