We've been based at our iconic centre in South West London, nestled in the shadow of Battersea Power Station, since 1871.
Battersea’s centres are closed to the public except for pre-booked appointments or guided tours.
Customers who wish to rehome a dog or cat are advised to fill out an online rehoming application.
Battersea relies upon donations to raise the vital funds needed to keep our centres running, and we need the continued support of the public to ensure we can continue to be here for every dog and cat. If you can help, please make a donation.
