Paul O'Grady: Battersea Dogs and Cats Home names vet hospital after TV star

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has announced its veterinary hospital will be named after the charity's late ambassador Paul O'Grady.

The TV and radio presenter, who died in March aged 67, became an ambassador for Battersea in 2012.

It followed the success of ITV's award-winning For The Love Of Dogs, 11 series of which were filmed at the home.

After O'Grady's death, the charity set up a "tribute fund" in his honour which has raised ?480,000 to date.

Some ?100,000 of the fund will be distributed to five other animal charities that were close to the entertainer's heart, with each getting ?20,000.

Charities near O'Grady's home city of Liverpool are among those who will be supported including Freshfields Animal Rescue, Carla Lane Animals In Need and The Oldies Club.
