Hamish's Seaside Stroll


Location: Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, 26 Seafield Road East, Edinburgh, EH15 1EH
Time: 10:30am - 2:00pm
Date: Sunday 16 June 2019

To celebrate the launch of our brand new education programme, Hamish - our friendly, fur-covered mascot - invites children of all ages to join us at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home for Hamish's Seaside Stroll!

The centrepiece of this event is the Seaside Stroll, a short, leisurely walk along the Portobello Promenade taking in the sea breeze and sunshine. Following the walk, which takes place at 11:30am, we welcome you to spend some time at the Home where there'll be food, facepainting, games and possibly an appearance from some of our furry friends!

Attendees will also be able to learn more about our new education programme, request a visit, and try out some of our in-class activities.

Dogs are more than welcome but must be kept on a lead and under control.

For more information, please contact us on 0131 669 5331 or education@edch.org.uk.
