Next door to Battersea Park Road Station, London, Chatham, and Dover Railway.

PATRON-Her Most Gracious Majesty THE QUEEN.
PRESIDENT-His Grace THE DUKE OF PORTLAND.

Established in 1860 to Shelter Lost and Deserted Dogs found in the streets of London; to restore
dogs to their rightful owners; find new homes for good and useful animals, at nominal charges ;
to destroy useless and suffering animals in a humane and painless manner in the Lethal Chamber.

EVERY PURCHASER is required to state in writing the real purpose for
which the Animal is required, and the most stringent regulations are enforced to
prevent dogs being sold for PURPOSES OF EXPERIMENTATION.

THE HOME, which relies mainly on VOLUNTARY SUPPORT, is now in urgent need of

help. It has no Government subsidy, and its resources are severely taxed to meet the heavy demands

upon them.

Notice to Jaiots.

When you see a dog pant in hot weather, or act strangely, kill it. If possible, collect a crowd of other idiots, and stone it to death, or treat it in such a way that it bites you in self. defence. Then you are sure it is mad. The dog, of course, is not mad, and is, as

rule, by far the most intelligent actor in scenes of this description. To one case of rabies there are thousands of human idiots whose good luck it is that the dogs possess wiser instincts than themselves.- New York Life."
