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."

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
