About us

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is part of the fabric of our city, working in partnership with the Council and Police services, members of the public and wider community by welcoming lost, stray, and abandoned pets from all corners of Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Our organisation benefits from the skills and experience of our staff, comprised of long-serving kennel veterans and enthusiastic new talent. Our small team is united by the love and dedication towards the animals in our care, and the belief that any dog or cat that comes to our door, whatever the reason, should be safe, warm and well-fed.

Our vision is to create a community where unwanted and mistreated animals are given a voice and a second chance for a happy and forever home; and where anybody who can, will act to advocate for animals still suffering.

Walk 9K for K9s challenge

Event dates: Saturday 28th August – Sunday 29th August

It's no surprise that the past year has been a difficult one, especially for the Home. With our rehoming programme paused for a total of 6 months, stall and events being cancelled or postponed, and the many knock-on effects from the pandemic.

Luckily, our dedicated staff, volunteers, and local community have helped to support the Home over the past 16 months. Now it's your turn! We know how important your pooch has been throughout lockdown, so this challenge is for you and your best (furry) friend.

To celebrate National Dog Day in August, Give as You Live “Wagathon” is holding a 9K for K9 challenge over the weekend of 28 and 29 August. All you need to do is sign up, make a fundraising page and share it with your friends and family, then take on the challenge of walking 9K with your K9.

It’s up to you if you’d like to walk the 9km in one go or take your time over the whole weekend. For reference, 9km is the distance from the Home to Calton Hill and back again!

This is event is FREE to take part in and, alongside this campaign, Give as You Live Donate will be running an online competition. Dog owners could be in with a chance of winning a £100 donation for their chosen dog charity and a £100 hamper full of treats and goodies for their pooch! Full details of the competition will be released in early August.

If you'd like to support the Home and be in for a chance to win, simply sign up for free to start your fundraising journey and help the dogs and cats in our care to find their forever homes.

🐾 £75 could provide life-saving vaccines and preventative medication to 4 dogs on arrival at the Home

🐾 £150 could neuter a dog in our care

🐾 £300 could provide food for one dog for an entire year
