Kennels that have rescued and rehomed thousands of dogs and cats will celebrate their 35th anniversary on Saturday.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Priest Hill, Old Windsor has cared for more than 37,000 dogs and 19,000 cats over the years since 1979.

Centre manager Kaye Mughal said: "We have seen our fair share of desperate cases in need of help and found thousands of dogs and cats new homes to call their own."

This weekend's event runs from noon to 4pm. It will feature tea and cakes, games, a rehoming parade featuring Battersea dogs and an exhibition charting the centre's history.

One dog who will be searching for a new home at the event is three-year-old Lolly. 

The black and white mongrel will be marking her 500th day at the centre.
