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.

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.
