Today, 15 January, is Blue Monday – also known as the most depressing day of the year. To help brighten up your spirits, here are some of the homeless residents from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home who could make a real positive difference to your life.
Rob Young, Battersea’s London Centre Manager said: “Owning a pet can have many rewarding health benefits. They offer unconditional love and can help ease the feeling of loneliness. They really do become a loving best friend and a part of the family. Here at Battersea, we’ve got lots of dogs and cats who will put a smile on anyone’s face this Blue Monday.”
