Challenge Yourself

Stray Over offers the chance for you to enjoy street food, movies, yoga by candlelight and games, while fundraising for the thousands of stray animals that come to Battersea each year.

Watch the video below to see what Stray Over has in store.

Battersea receives no government funding, so we ask that each individual taking part raises as much as they can to Stray Over to help us care for dogs & Cats in our care.

The money you raise through challenging yourself or your team to Stray Over will help us to continue to provide care for the lost, abandoned and unwanted animals that arrive at our gates.

Read our Stray Over Fundraising Guide, full of handy tips and tricks on how to meet your fundraising target.

Why Stray Over?

In 2017, 26% of dogs and 28% of cats that arrived at Battersea's three centres were strays. The money you raise by spending the night as a stray and swapping your bed for a sleeping bag will go towards the care of our abandoned dogs and cats. Select a picture below to read the stories of some of our stray dogs and cats.
