Battersea is committed to supporting other animal rescue organisations. We know that we can help more animals by working together with others than we can alone, especially in areas where the need is high but there is scarce resource and little public help.
We offer a range of grants to help successful applicants develop and deliver specific projects with measurable outcomes that will benefit dogs and cats. Our grants are available to any organisation, no matter how large or small.
