Battersea Dogs Home - A Dog's Life

Everyone has heard of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, especially as they are promoting the new state of the art cattery as part of their 150th birthday celebrations in 2010. However, few people realise the enormous amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to keep the home running.

One such person is vehicle maintenance engineer Bud Abbott, who recently ran into a problem with a mobile water pump that facilitates the power washer used to clean the kennels and runs needed to cater for the 10,600 animals brought in to the home every year. Half way through a cleaning programme, the high pressure jetting hose to the gun failed and a call was immediately made to Pirtek Greenwich for assistance. Abbott knew they would respond quickly as they had done so in the past. But even he was impressed with their latest rescue. “The pump also doubles up as our drain jetting machine, so it was vital to get it back into service as quickly as possible,” Abbott concludes. “Our problem was solved immediately and the 3/8, 350 bars hose was replaced within 10 minutes. That’s what I call service!”
