Battersea is here for every dog and cat, and has been since 1860. In over 158 years, we’ve gone from one home in London to three ‘rescue and rehome’ centres across the country. In all this time Battersea has cared for over three million vulnerable animals. Battersea is one of the UK’s most well known animal shelters looking after thousands of dogs and cats. We are one of the few animal shelters that aim to never turn away a dog or cat, regardless of breed and however difficult they may be to rehome.
We believe that every dog and cat deserves the best. That’s why we help every dog or cat in need — whether it’s newly-born or getting on, or cute in its own way.
Battersea has always been funded by public donations. It is thanks to the generosity of animal lovers everywhere that we have been able to protect the happiness and dignity of dogs and cats, and can continue to do so. Please help us be here for every dog and cat by making Battersea your charity of choice.
Giveacar and its donors are proud supporters of Battersea, as it provides precious care for dogs and cats when they most desperately need it. If you’re planning to scrap or sell your car, give a car instead to better the health and well-being of dogs and cats. To support and care for these animals before they find a new home, make a difference and help support Battersea look after the most abused and neglected dogs and cats in the UK. Do a good deed and help them continue this care by making Battersea the charity you support when you donate your car to charity.
