Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home are ''just a few animal rescue centres that run a non-selective intake policy. This means we accept any breed of animal, at any age, including dogs or cats with serious medical and behavioural problems. Our expert team of dog trainers and veterinary staff give the animals in our care the best possible chance of a fresh start in a happy new home in the UK, or even further afield'.

The HOPE Project gives preventative veterinary care to dogs belonging to homeless people.We advise government on any matters concerning dog ownership.We have established a charity in Ireland that runs a rehoming centre in Dublin.
