BATTERSEA Puppies and Cats Dwelling is to name its veterinary medical center in honour of the late Television star Paul O’Grady.
The animal-loving presenter, who died in March aged 67, was an ambassador for the charity.
It followed the achievement of his For The Enjoy of Canine display for ITV, which observed 11 series filmed at Battersea.
Immediately after his loss of life, it established up a “tribute fund” which has elevated £480,000.
Most of the money will be expended on “life-saving and transformative professional medical procedures” for animals.
And five other animal charities shut to the entertainer’s coronary heart will also get £20,000 each individual.
Paul’s widower Andre Portasio reported: “It gives me some convenience to know that . . . Paul’s legacy will stay on.”
“Paul was so passionate in his help of rescue animals.
“It offers me some comfort to know that by the difficult get the job done and dedication of Battersea and other charities Paul’s legacy will reside on.
“I know that Paul would have been happy to know that the most disadvantaged animals he was so fond of championing are finding the appreciate and support they should have.”
