Older Dogs

Rehoming older dogs

We have seen more older animals coming into our care. In the last five years, we have seen an increase of two thirds. In 2007, we looked after 264 dogs and cats aged 10 years or older – and based on current figures we expect this to jump to 430 by the end of this year. The average age for a dog or cat depends on its breed, but this year Battersea has already cared for seven dogs and 18 cats aged 15 or older.
