Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, now known as Battersea, is an animal shelter for dogs and cats. Battersea rescues dogs and cats until an owner or a new can be found. It is one of the UK's oldest and best known animal rescue centres. It was established in Holloway, London in 1860 and moved to Battersea in 1871.
The non-Government funded organisation cares for an average of 240 dogs and 145 cats across all three centres at any one time. The charity has cared for more than 3.1 million dogs and cats over its history.
