Registered Charity No: 206394 (England & Wales).

From the moment we welcomed our first stray dog in 1860, Battersea has been placing our animals at the centre of everything we do. More than three million animals later, we’re still working hard to achieve our vision that every dog and cat should live in a home where they are treated with love, care and respect.

Last year we cared for over 7,000 dogs and cats across our centres in London, Brands Hatch and Old Windsor. We accept any breed of animal, at any age, including dogs or cats with serious medical and behavioural problems. We are champions for, and supporters of, vulnerable dogs and cats, determined to create lasting changes for animals in our society.

Much of our vital work is made possible through gifts in Wills. To request your free legacy information pack, please contact the Special Gifts team on or visit
