It’s time to do the doggy paddle

Leave your inhibitions at the (changing room) door

Take on Battersea’s new virtual swimming event this April and swim to raise £100 for Battersea.

When you do the Doggy Paddle Challenge, every length you swim will help the lost, abandoned and vulnerable animals that arrive at Battersea get the brighter futures they deserve.

Pick your pool, pick your distance and pick whether to go solo or get competitive with your mates. You can even pick your stroke – but to keep our dogs and cats front of mind we recommend you complete it using doggy paddle.
