People say that love for animals is eternal, and Peter Rogers, the creator of Carry On films who recently passed away, proves this theory.
According to Animal Friends Insurance
, the film producer had a dying wish to give back a painting he purchased from the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home more than 25 years ago. The generous man had bought the work of art in celebration of the charity's 125th anniversary.
"Peter was a big dog lover and always had his German Shepherd with him, so he would be delighted...that the home is going to display the painting," Leonora Dossett, Rogers niece, told the news outlet.
According to the charity's website, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is the oldest home for dogs and cats in the United Kingdom. It aims to never turn away a pet that needs love, medical attention or care.
The organization's attempt to contribute to animal rescue
causes extends even further. In fact, the non-profit also educates the public about proper pet care. Still, they maintain that they take in over 10,000 dogs and cats every year.
