Abandoned Kittens Still Feel the Love at Battersea this Mother’s Day

The dedication of Battersea staff and volunteers ensures that tiny kittens separated from their mums, such as Toby (pictured), will continue to receive the vital help they need to thrive – this Mother’s Day and all year round.

In these uncertain times, Battersea is continuing to provide unconditional care for some of the nation’s most vulnerable dogs and cats, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, its three centres are now closed to visitors.

Those with pre-booked re-homing and intake appointments are still allowed to visit, however.

Battersea has also suspended new applications to foster unlucky cats and dogs like Toby.

While the charity appreciates that there are many people willing to foster animals waiting to find their forever home, Battersea is fortunate to have an existing network of volunteers and existing foster carers to provide ongoing care for the dogs and cats in their care.

It costs around £50,000 every day to care for animals across its three centres, so the best way to support Battersea currently is by making a donation to help them continue to be there for every dog and cat.
