Without the support of people like you, our staff and volunteers wouldn’t be able to dedicate themselves to caring for the animals at Battersea. We're still working hard to ensure that every dog and cat lives in a home where they are treated with love, care and respect. So, whether you’ve got a rescue dog or cat (or any other animal), remember to wrap them in love, not just at Christmas, but every day of the year.
