This March, as part of the Stray Over Committee I will be giving up my warm bed and home comforts to spend a night under the stars to raise money for Battersea. Stray Over 2019 is the second year of a new sleep out event for the corporate sector and the night will see over 400 people from various industries across the UK taking the chilly challenge to sleep out at one of the famous charity’s centres in either Windsor or London.
The night is being held to raise awareness of the plight of the thousands of stray and abandoned animals that arrive at Battersea’s gates every year. We stand beside Battersea in believing that no animal deserves to be kicked out onto the streets and that they all deserve care, respect and a loving home.
Help change the lives of dogs and cats by donating to Battersea Dog's and Cat's home and support The Stray Over Committee team and I on our night under the stars!!
Some info on why Battersea are awesome:
Battersea, established in 1860, aims never to turn away a dog or cat in need of our help, caring for them until their owners or loving new homes can be found, no matter how long it takes. We are champions for, and supporters of, vulnerable dogs and cats, determined to create lasting changes for animals in our society.
Since it was founded, Battersea has rescued, reunited and rehomed over 3.1 million dogs and cats. In 2017, Battersea cared for over 7000 dogs and cats. Battersea cares for an average of 270 dogs and 200 cats across its three centres at any one time.There is no time limit on how long an animal can stay at the charity but the average stay for a dog is 38 days and 22 days for a cat.
