Battersea Dogs & Cats rehome dogs and cats. They reunite them with their owners and work in the community to educate people about responsible ownership. They aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need, and turn helplessness into hope for 8,000 every

"We applied to Support Adoption For Pets for help towards a new Lost & Found and Intake Reception building, part of a massive redevelopment project at our Home.

Support Adoption For Pets make applying very easy; an online application form asks straightforward questions and gives you the opportunity to clearly describe what you need funding for, and what the impact will be.

The team are a friendly, knowledgeable group and I enjoy speaking with them. They care deeply about animal welfare and rescue, and empathise with our aims and ambitions. It is a pleasure to communicate with a funder that actively looks for ways to fund and support your organisation – Emily and Amy always find the time to answer any questions we have in a friendly and constructive way.

We were awarded our grant in 2014 and building work was completed in Spring 2015 and testing of the facility was finished in August. The first dogs came through the new intake reception in September 2015.

SAFP is one of our closest friends and most generous supporters. In a time of great need at the Home, Support Adoption has helped us to overcome the challenges on our journey.

From all of the dogs, cats, staff and volunteers at Battersea, thank you!"
