Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has announced its veterinary hospital will be renamed after the charity's late ambassador Paul O’Grady.
Following the TV and radio presenter’s death in March, Battersea set up a tribute fund in his honour which has raised £480,000 to date.
The funds will be spent on life-saving medical procedures for dogs and cats needing specialist care and treatment.
Five other animal charities close to O’Grady’s heart will receive £20,000 each, including The Oldies Club based in his home city of Liverpool.
