What we do

We will always be here for every dog and cat

At Battersea, we aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need of our help. We give each one lots of love and expert care and get to know their characters and quirks so we can find them a new home that’s just right for them.

All the knowledge we gather in our centres helps us to improve the lives of the animals we’ll never meet, through our work with other rescue organisations and charities. We also help people make informed choices when getting a pet, we provide training and welfare advice, and we campaign for changes in the law when we see that dogs and cats or their owners deserve better. We want to be here for every dog and cat, wherever they are, for as long as they need us.

Finding new homes for dogs and cats

We give every animal personalised care and spend lots of time getting to know them so we can make sure we find the best new home or working role for them.

Campaigning to improve animal welfare

Working with other rescues, in the UK and beyond

While we'll always focus on caring for animals at our three centres, we can do more for dogs and cats when we extend our support beyond our gates.
