Donate in memory

Leaving a gift in memory of a friend, loved one or pet is a wonderful way of remembering and celebrating their life.

Asking friends and family to make a donation to Battersea in lieu of flowers is a wonderful way to remember a loved one and to celebrate their life as an animal lover. It can be comforting to know that each donation given in their memory helps to ensure that every dog or cat who finds themselves at Battersea gets the love and care they deserve.

Battersea tribute fund

Losing someone special can leave you feeling lost so it's natural that you would want to remember them and celebrate their life. Sharing happy memories, stories and photos is a lovely way to keep their memory alive, while bringing you some comfort at a difficult time.

That's why we've created the Battersea Tribute Fund; a special place where family and friends can continue to commemorate the life of a loved one, while raising much-needed funds for animals at Battersea. Your Tribute Fund can be used to collect individual donations in memory of someone special; you can also use it to set up your own fundraising events and to collect sponsorship money if taking part in an event for Battersea.

You'll be able to see the total amount raised for Battersea in memory of your loved one and know their legacy is making a life-changing difference to the animals in our care.


Pet tribute fund

A Pet Tribute Fund is a special place for you to celebrate the life of your pet and keep their memory alive while raising much-needed funds for the animals at Battersea.

It only takes a few minutes to set up your pet tribute fund. Once set up, you can share your page through email or social media with friends and family from around the world, who can visit the page to make a donation and share their fondest memories.


Collect in memory of a loved one

Asking friends and family to donate to Battersea in lieu of flowers is a really positive way to remember someone and to celebrate their life as an animal lover. It can be comforting to know that each donation helps Battersea be there for every dog and cat who need us.

Funeral directors should be able to arrange a collection for you and send any donations to us directly. Or, if you'd prefer to organise the collection yourself, we are able to provide collection envelopes with Battersea's details on which you can request by emailing the Special Gifts team at

Hoi's story

When dog-lover, Hoi, passed away it was his final wish that donations be made to Battersea in his memory. His family took great comfort in knowing this tribute to Hoi was helping us to care for the dogs he loved so much.
