Battersea joins forces with top UK shopping site!

Shopaholics now have more of a reason to get the feel-good factor when shopping thanks to an online retailer joining forces with a top UK charity.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and notonthehighstreet.com – the UK’s largest curated marketplace, offering unique products from the UK's best, small creative businesses – have announced a partnership which will help thousands of unwanted and abandoned animals each year.

not on the high streetThe year-long partnership will see notonthehighstreet.com sponsor Battersea’s official rehoming pack, which is given to all new owners of a Battersea dog or cat, and will now include a notonthehighstreet.com produced catalogue featuring the stories of animals rehomed by Battersea.

The catalogue will also see the charity's lovely cats and dogs showcasing bespoke pet products, which are amongst the 170,000 unique items that can be purchased from notonthehighstreet.com, with five per cent of these sales donated to Battersea.

Carly Whyborn, Head of Operations at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home says: “The partnership with notonthehighstreet.com is all about celebrating “a pet less ordinary” and investing in the special care we give to our residents every day of the year. The donations from notonthehighstreet.com will enable us to care for our animals, giving them the second chance in life they so deserve.

“It’s wonderful that notonthehighstreet.com customers can help rescue animals because a percentage of the revenue will come to Battersea, helping more dogs and cats in need.”

Antony Lea, Head of Partnerships at notonthehighstreet.com adds: “We are excited and honoured to partner with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, a truly iconic charity which works tirelessly to rehome every dog and cat that pass through their doors. Having the opportunity to help raise further awareness of that work through our sponsorship of the rehoming pack, and also raise funds for these extraordinary animals is something we feel very passionate about as a brand.”
