Professional rugby club London Irish has teamed up with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in Old Windsor to find new homes for animals.
The club has offered to feature regular rehoming slots in its match day programmes which go out to more than 4,000 supporters across the Thames Valley.
Digger the Irish wolfhound, the club's mascot, visited the dogs at the Priest Hill rescue centre to launch the new partnership on Monday.
The first rehoming slot will feature in the programme on September 21.
Centre manager Kaye Mughal said: "Every opportunity to shout about the amazing dogs and cats we have ready to be rehomed here is greatly appreciated."
