Actress Catherine Tate Helps Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

Share with fellow dog lovers!

Having once portrayed one of the Time Lord’s companions on the cult series Doctor Who, comic actress Catherine Tate took on the role of helping animal companions recently as she opened the Spring Affordable Art Fair, benefiting Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

The UK’s oldest animal welfare organization holds a special place in the star’s heart. “I’m a big fan of Battersea’s work and I have a Battersea cat, so it’s a real privilege to support the charity by opening the Affordable Art Fair. It’s a great event in the art calendar and hopefully it will raise lots of money for the charity.”

At a Charity Private View with ticket proceeds aiding the prominent shelter, Tate happily posed for pictures alongside a plethora of pet portraits on display. In all, more than 120 galleries participated in the Spring Affordable Art Fair, with many of the art works donated to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to sell or place in a silent auction.

Ending on March 13, 2011, the 2011 Spring Affordable Art Fair has raised £12,000 so far for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. A few pet portraits are still available, and interested parties can contact for more information on the sale.
