Donations to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home pass £100,000

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has been “overwhelmed and touched” by donations from the public following the death of the charity’s ambassador Paul O’Grady.

After O’Grady’s death on Tuesday, the animal charity set up a “tribute fund” which has raised more than £100,000.

The TV and radio presenter became an ambassador for Battersea in 2012 after the success of ITV’s multi-award-winning For The Love Of Dogs, 11 series of which were filmed at the home.

In a statement to the PA news agency, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home chief executive, Peter Laurie, said: “Over the coming weeks and months, Battersea will be finding the best way to pay tribute to our wonderful friend and ambassador, the late, great Paul O’Grady MBE.

“We have been overwhelmed and touched by the countless letters, calls, emails and messages of support along with the generous donations made by kind members of the public this week.

“We will be looking to find a suitably fitting way to remember the profound impact Paul had at Battersea and the rescue animal sector, something that will support the animals that Paul loved so much and that would make him proud.”
