Bookmark of Spalding has selected Christmas at Batteresea, with a foreword by Paul O’Grady, for its book of the week.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home never closes its doors, not even on Christmas Day.

This week’s book, Christmas at Battersea: True Stories of Miracles and Hope, will give readers a glimpse into its world.

On Christmas Day every year, an army of dedicated volunteers makes the day as special as possible for the four-legged residents of Battersea, with knitted jumpers for poorly puppies and turkey dinners for hungry kittens.

Christmas at Battersea is full of heart-warming festive tales of rescue from Battersea’s staff, and the inspirational owners who find a place in their hearts and homes for abandoned pets.

You’ll meet Scrappie the mongrel puppy, left in a bin on the coldest day of the year, and the litter of pups, named after Santa’s reindeer, in urgent need of a home on Christmas Eve.

With a foreword by Battersea’s ambassador Paul O’Grady, this is a perfect present for animal lovers, packed with tear-jerking but uplifting real-life seasonal stories.
