This year’s stellar star line-up saw much-loved entertainers, acting greats, and global fashion icons treading the red carpet, which boasts the world-unique Battersea ‘Doggie Guard of Honour’ comprising many of the Home’s 400 rescued canine residents.

To commemorate the centenary of WW1, Battersea service dogs, former residents who have gone on to working roles with the police, Army, RAF, and Border Force took part in dramatic battlefield re-enactments showing how Battersea dogs have served their country from 1914 right up to the present day.
