Claire Horton

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home


With Claire’s leadership and innovation Battersea is transforming the way it works to ensure it is fit for the future, able to meet the ever increasing demands on its vital 155 year old services and building the Home’s capacity to increase its impact for animals.

Claire leads by example and sets high standards for herself and her team with very tangible results. She’s as front line as she is strategic, totally dedicated to the Home and always being available for anyone who needs her, she’s a passionate and inspirational spokeswoman, generating support from Royals, major corporates, trusts, donors and hundreds of famous names, and of course the public at large, who in turn drive further awareness and income for Battersea.

Claire’s committed to driving up national standards of animal welfare, whether in her role as Government advisor, or her leadership of other animal welfare organisations.

Battersea is undergoing transformational change under her leadership but Claire never loses sight of Battersea’s founding mission to help every dog or cat in need, and heavily invests in both our people and our animals.
