About Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home
Since it was founded in 1883 The Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home has been caring for lost and abandoned dogs and cats. We try, whenever possible, to find new and loving homes for all our animals and are passionate about what we do and how we do it. We aim to show that pet ownership, although challenging at times, can be one of the most rewarding things you can do. We take in over a thousand stray and unwanted dogs and cats each year and we aim never to turn away any dog or cat brought to us for help. We have a non-destruct policy and we try to make the lives of all our animal residents as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible while they are with us. All our dogs and cats are well cared for and are given a nice, comfortable bed in heated accommodation with plenty of food, vet care and , most importantly, lots of love and attention from our staff.
