Stray Over 2018

Challenge yourself and colleagues to sleep out under the stars at Battersea's iconic site.

Stray Over

27 April 2018

Stray Over is a challenging new corporate event held at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s iconic London centre.

By taking part, not only will you get to meet some of our adorable four-legged residents, you’ll also tour the Home after hours, enjoy team games, entertainment and street food and most importantly, help us care for the thousands of stray and abandoned animals that arrive at Battersea every year.

This is a networking event with a difference. With up to 50 businesses taking part from a variety of sectors, you’ll get to meet useful contacts in a fun and informal setting. The evening also promises team building exercises, with opportunities to work together, solve problems and experience an unforgettable event outside of your comfort zone.

Strays at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

In 2017, 27% of dogs and cats arriving at our centres were strays – that's over 2,000 animals. For those animals who arrive at our gates, there is hope that through the expertise and dedication of our staff and veterinary team, they can be nursed back to health and new loving homes found for them, however long it takes.
