It’s almost Valentine’s Day and this speed dating event means you can get the perfect match.
Don’t worry, you won’t have to spend hours making small talk with strangers but you might want to bring along a few dog biscuits.
Battersea has teamed up with furniture store Heal’s to offer speed dating with some of their longest term residents in the centre of London.
If you are looking to rescue a pet or just want to see some Very Good Boys, the doggos will be at the retailer’s flagship store on Tottenham Court Road between 12.30pm-2pm and 5pm-6pm tomorrow.
Steve Craddock, Battersea’s London Centre Manager, said: ‘At Battersea, we truly believe that there’s a perfect match for everyone.
‘We can’t wait to give our dogs the opportunity to enjoy some time out of their kennels and potentially meet that special someone.
‘We hope the event encourages people to consider bringing a rescue animal in to their hearts and homes.’
Dogs do dream! Dogs and humans have the same type of slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) and during this REM stage dogs can dream. The twitching and paw movements that occur during their sleep are signs that your pet is dreaming
Ruth Cotterell, Head of Marketing at Heal’s, added: ‘After working with Battersea last year to raise awareness of their mission, we are delighted to help get their tails wagging once again for Valentine’s Day.
‘At Heal’s, we believe a furry companion can really help to make a house a home, and hope we’ll be able to help the pet residents of Battersea, who have so far been unlucky in love, find a friend for life.’
But be quick, if you want to take part, you need to book a space.
