Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs

Our award-winning primetime ITV show ‘Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs’, following Paul as he meets some of the dogs in our care.

Filmed across our three centres in London, Old Windsor, and Brands Hatch, animal lover extraordinaire and Battersea Ambassador Paul O’Grady is back for a brand new eight-part series of ‘For the Love of Dogs’. Over the course of the series, Paul will be meeting some of the many Battersea dogs looking for help, love and new homes.
