Don't worry if you don't have your full team yet, register now and recruit later on!

Your team can consist of five members, including your team leader and can be made up of people from your company or a combination from different organisations.

Battersea receives no government funding so all we ask is for your team to raise £500 per person to Stray Over. The money you raise through challenging your team to Stray Over will help us to continue to provide care for thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted animals that arrive at our gates every year.

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.

Our Old Windsor centre has been open since 1979 and cares for more than one thousand animals every year. It operates in the same way as the London centre but with even more outdoor green space for our dogs to stretch their legs in a quieter environment away from the city.
