Since being established in 1860, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is a charity (registered charity no 206394) that aims never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help. They reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners and when this can’t be done, they care for them until new homes can be found. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home also educates the public about responsible pet ownership.
BLE 2014 is proud to be a passionate supporter of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, and BLE 2014 sees the introduction of our NEW show Mascot … Squirt, a beautiful black Staffie who was rehomed by Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. You can visit Squirt at the show on the Home’s stand N30.

BLE are extremely pleased to be supporting such a great industry run charity. As headline sponsors for the Light Fund Treasure Hunt in July 2014 we are looking forward to getting more involved with further Light Fund initiatives over the coming year and helping raise more money for this fantastic cause.
The Light Fund, created in 2004 is an industry wide charity that raises monies to fund worthwhile charity projects to help children, women and men. The Light Fund is an acronym for: The Licensing Industry Giving Help Together. Since its inception, The Light Fund has raised almost £600,000 for numerous charities. Governed by a committee of dedicated people who give their time for free, it gained official registered charity status in 2012.
