Paws2Rescue Awarded Special Grant from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

Local charity Paws2Rescue has been awarded a special grant from one of the UK’s leading animal welfare charities, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London. The funds granted by Battersea will support Paws2Rescue’s work with cats and dogs and enable the London-based charity to neuter cats and dogs in Ortisoara, West Romania, where the stray dog and cat population has been out of control. 

Alison Standbridge, Paws2Rescue said “We are honoured that Battersea are supporting our work in Romania will make a life changing difference to thousands of cats and dogs in 2021 and beyond, helping us to prevent unwanted births, and educating the local communities to providing a brighter future for animals. Their commitment to helping animals in need truly is global, and we are proud to be supported by this incredible organisation.” 

Margaret Hulme, Grants Manager at Battersea added: “We hope that this grant will help make a real difference to the lives of animals. At Battersea we want to support rescues and shelters, not only by awarding funding, but also by sharing the experiences and knowledge we have gained as an animal welfare charity that has been rescuing and rehoming animals for 160 years.”

Battersea Grants is an initiative launched in 2019 that aims to support smaller rescues and shelters by offering grants of between £3,000 and £15,000. This money will help organisations continue their great work with dogs and cats.
