Rescue dog Bolt

Three year old Bolt has been at Battersea since early October, after his owners could no longer care for him.

Loneliest dogs at Battersea have their say - thanks to children


Primary school children are helping to give some of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s loneliest dogs a voice.
Battersea’s four loneliest residents have been constantly overlooked, so the world-famous shelter has enlisted some young helpers to get them noticed.
Children, aged six to eight, have put themselves in these dogs’ paws and written ‘when they grow up’ pictures and letters from the dogs’ perspectives.

Ella the leaping Lurcher

Ella the Lurcher is now full of beans and feeling happy after five weeks in the care of the RSPCA. You could say she's jumping for joy. She's bounding around, and looking far better than when she was found, abandoned, very underweight with lots of fur missing.

The future's looking bright for Ella.

The future may not be as happy for the person who abandoned her, tying her to a fence in Laburnum Grove in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire on the 9th of February.

The charity is still appealing for information in relation to the man seen in CCTV footage abandoning the Lurcher before running away.

Anyone with information can telephone the RSPCA’s inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

Lurcher Ella is recovering in RSPCA care after being dumped on the street in a bad condition

A Lurcher who was tied to a fence and abandoned in February of this year is doing well in the care of the RSPCA. The moment that Ella was abandoned was caught on CCTV, and the RSPCA is ongoing, but the dogs is recovering from her ordeal.

When Ella was found, the freezing, skinny Lurcher was curled up on the floor in an effort to keep warm. Due to a skin condition, she had lost a lot of fur, which meant her skin was exposed to the harsh weather, leaving it even more sore than it had been.

Puppies survive being dumped in a bucket

Here’s a “pupdate” on the six tiny Lurcher puppies who were dumped in a bucket late in 2016. The tiny, five week old pups were dumped on a doorstep a few days before Christmas 2016. Due to the timing of their discovery, the youngsters were named after Santa’s reindeer, after being taken to the RSPCA.

The litter of puppies are recovering from their ordeal, although one puppy – Dasher - very sadly died of parvo within a few days of being rescued. The surviving puppies are doing very well, thankfully.
