Caring for lost and abandoned dogs and cats in Edinburgh and the Lothians

More About Us

The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home rescues over a thousand lost or abandoned dogs and cats every year.

We never put a healthy dog or cat down or give up hope of finding a permanent loving home for each of them. Our animals wait patiently for their new owner to walk through our door – many for weeks, months, or even years. During this time, we provide essential veterinary care, food, shelter and lots of love. By making the commitment to donate on a regular basis, you are helping us to provide this vital care to those who need it most.

We provide a vital service to the community by trying, wherever possible, to reunite owners with their missing animals. But there are times when owners cannot be found or are unable to cope – that’s when our re-homing programme comes in, when we find new homes for unwanted dogs and cats.

No matter how much you choose to give, your gift will make a huge difference to our animals. For example, just £5 a month can help provide shelter, medicine, food and treats to the thousands of dogs and cats that desperately need our help.

Impact we make

Hi my name is Charlie. I am a gorgeous big boy who is very playful, and just loves having fun. I am only 1 year old and have lots of energy. I like to be as active as possible or I can get too boisterous.

Hello, I’m Sadie. I’d suit a quiet home without children, with an owner who can spend time with me building my confidence, and allow me to reach my full potential as a happy and confident companion. I hope to find my forever home soon.

I’m loyal & playful boy who loves a game of tug or fetch. I'm bright & intelligent. Although I've only started training, I already walk well on a harness & lead and will sit for a treat.

I’m a big girl with a big personality! I love a cuddle & will quickly turn upside down for a belly scratch. I’m a very happy dog & love to play, I’m always showing my goofy boxer-type sense of humour as I wriggle and wiggle around!

And much more!
