At their three centres in London, Old Windsor and Brands Hatch, Battersea reunites lost dogs and cats with their owners. When they can't do that, they care for them until new owners can be found. There is no time limit on how long a dog or cat stays with Battersea while they find them their perfect new home.
As one of the UK's leading animal rescue charities, Battersea aims to take in all lost, abandoned or unwanted dogs and cats, no matter what their health or behavioural issues may be. Battersea's expert team of dog trainers and veterinary staff give the animals in their care the best possible chance of a fresh start in a happy new home in the UK, or sometimes even further afield.
Since it was founded over 150 years ago, Battersea has rescued, reunited and rehomed over 3.1 million dogs and cats and uses its expertise, influence and voice to help thousands more animals all over the country and across the world.
Our players are supporting Battersea with funding which will allow them to provide a warm bed, food, walks, training, veterinary care and love for more than 7,000 dogs and cats that need help every year.
You can help Battersea improve the lives of dogs and cats and give them a second chance in a loving new home. For more information, visit their website www.battersea.org.uk. To help support their work, sign up to play People's Postcode Lottery.
