Visit Battersea London
We've been based at our iconic centre in South West London, nestled in the shadow of Battersea Power Station, since 1871. We're open every day and welcome visitors to come and meet us and our animals in need of new homes.

At Battersea we are committed to providing the best customer service we can to find the right dog or cat to join your family. We are currently trialling an appointment based system for any customers who may be interested in rehoming with us. If you would like to book an appointment to see one of our London dog rehoming team please call 0800 001 4444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to book an appointment to see one of our London cat rehoming team please call 0207 627 9279 or email email@example.com.
We are heavily reliant on the generosity of supporters and visitors as we receive no Government funding. Without this, we would not be able to provide the same level of high quality care for the animals we look after.
