A dog named Blue is looked after at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London.
Blue is one of a few dogs to have spent their second Christmas at the home.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home was founded 150 years ago and has rescued,
reunited and rehomed over three million dogs and cats. The average stay for
a dog is just 28 days, although some stay much longer. Around 550 dogs and
200 cats are provided refuge by Battersea at any given time.
“We aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help. We reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners; when we can’t do this, we care for them until new homes can be found for them; and we educate the public about responsible pet ownership. Every year the Home cares for over 10,600 dogs and cats.”
