Earlier this year, my good friends Michael and Muki lost their dog, Jerk, who was a former Battersea Dogs & Cats Home resident. Michael wrote a lovely post on Facebook about how he'd rather people donated to Battersea than comment.
I am a former Battersea resident and dog owner who tried to volunteer at the Home, but was unable to because of my work schedule. My wife and I also tried to rehome a Battersea dog, but were unable to because our landlord wouldn't let us. As you can see, I've been a lot of use to Battersea so far. Hopefully this will change that.
This is in memory of Jerk, and all other four-legged Battersea residents.
I am running the 2017 London Marathon for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home because of my friends' dog Jerk and many like her.
We rescue, reunite and rehome dogs and cats to care for them until new homes are found
