Battersea needs your blankets

Battersea Dogs Home desperately needs your blankets.

Blankets are an important commodity for any dog rehoming centre, as explained on the Battersea website:

“We use over 1,000 blankets a day, as they are changed twice a day, sometimes more if required, to keep the dogs warm and comfortable. Some of the dogs use their blankets as playtime toys so sadly we do have to dispose of the blankets once they become ripped.”

They’re looking for dense woven blankets, rather than knitted or duvets. If you’ve got any spare blankets, in good condition, send them to:

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
E-xtra Blanket Appeal
Freepost SW5 153
4 Battersea Park Road
London
SW8 4YY

To save Battersea the postage costs, simply knock off the “Freepost” line and add your own stamps. Alternatively, the home will gladly accept donations in person, but ask that blankets are properly parcelled and labelled.

You can find out more in the Batersea E-Extra newsletter.
