Hibernian FC player challenges our own football-mad Star

19/12/2018

Today we had a very special visit from Hibernian FC player Marvin Bartley. He popped along to the Home for a quick kick about with Star, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has been looking for his forever home for five years now. 

Star holds a special place in the hearts of all the staff here at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, and after being unsuccessful at finding a family for so long, we are now desperately hoping for that perfect person to give him the chance he deserves. During his time here, Star has developed a love for football, with chasing a ball around being his favourite way to spend his time. We thought it was only appropriate that we invited Hibs FC along to pit their skills against Star and help find him his forever home. 

Marvin said: “I’ve come here to try to help re-home a dog called Star. He’s a young man, still only seven years of age, but he’s been here for five years and we’re trying to get him a new home in time for Christmas.

“If we can get a Hibs fan or a football fan then we will get them a signed shirt in addition to adopting Star because we really want him to get a new home.”
