Lisa Rosenberger, winner of the last years BDCH auction in support of the Battersea Collars & Coats Gala Ball, enjoyed a one-on-one dogwalk with Battersea Ambassador and model David Gandy.
Gandy, a well know dog lover, walked a beautiful Staffie named Maisie and Lisa a delightful mutt named Fragel across Battersea Park on a warm morning in London. In addition to the walk, Lisa also enjoyed a guided tour of the new kennels that are still under construction, 56 new individual kennels with dedicated sleeping, eating and play areas, complete with under-floor heating and outdoor exercise pens.
The auction was held last november and helped raise money and awareness about the daily work at the Battersea's centers in London, Berkshire and Kent, looking after 9000 animals each year, including nearly 6000 dogs and over 3000 cats. Lisa said about this award: "I waited nine months for this day. The last time I waited nine months for something, I gave birth to my son. But this time, it was a different kind of dream I was waiting for. This dream included a chance to help BDCH, two adorable dogs, a beautiful day in the park, one male super model and... me. But in the end, this dream was a reality."
In addition, we are glad to announce that Lisa will be a guest author at the end of next month on the blog and she will bring you the detailed story of her experience.
