Christmas in the Cattery: In Pictures
19 DECEMBER 2018
At Battersea, our work doesn't stop at Christmas.
Last year, over 20,000 pets in the UK were abandoned during the winter, meaning that our staff need to be ready to provide expert care every day of the year.
To date, we've received a total of £2.1million from Players of the People's Postcode Lottery, which helps us to provide our cats with everything they need over the Christmas break. From playtime and enrichment with their favourite toys...
...to providing tailored care while keeping them company...
...and even down to decorating the cat pens with stockings filled with toys and treats.
Thanks to the support that we receive from Players of the People's Postcode Lottery, we are able to make sure that we never turn an animal away from Battersea, even on Christmas Day.
