Leading animal welfare charity Battersea has released a new report that reveals the potentially catastrophic impact Covid-19 and the first lockdown has had on dogs and cats.

From popular local rescues facing the threat of closure though lack of income to impulse-bought pandemic pets suffering from irresponsible breeding, the consequences for animals are far-reaching – and Battersea is calling on the Government to do more to help struggling animal rescues across the UK.

Aston spoke to Mike Webb, head policy and public affairs at Battersea to discuss the research in further detail.
