Welcome to Charity Spotlight – a handy reference point for good folk doing great work. We’re helping to raise the profile of this diverse group of people and we encourage you to get involved with them, be it fundraising or even volunteering.

We would like to include all charities – large and small – that have anything at all to do with the world of dogs. If you’d like to see your organisation featured in these pages, please call Luci Mclean on 01276 858880 for more details. And if you’ve not yet got charity status but are still doing great work, have a chat with Mike – we may still be able to include you!

You Can Help Our Dogs and Cats with a Regular Gift by Becoming a Companion 

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has been rescuing, reuniting and rehoming lost, unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats across Edinburgh and the Lothians since 1883. Working tirelessly to find permanent loving homes for all animals in our care, however long it takes.

Helping thousands of dogs and cats

In 2017 alone, we rescued 466 dogs and 89 cats, reunited 253 dogs and 14 cats and rehomed 230 dogs and 82 cats. As we receive no government funding, we rely entirely on the generosity of the local community to care for these animals and regular gifts play a huge part in this. 

Counting on our Companions

Last year we launched our regular giving ‘Companion’ programme which is the perfect way for you to support the dogs and cats in a way that works for you. No matter the size of your donation, your gift will enable us to plan ahead with confidence, and do more to help Edinburgh and Lothians’ abandoned dogs and cats for as long as they need us.
