Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home’s first ever gala ball, A Dug’s Dinner, took place on Thursday 3 November, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh, with nearly 200 guests in attendance.

The black tie event attracted some of the city’s best dressed animal lovers, raising much-needed funds for the pets in our care, as well as our vital pet food bank and outreach work.

Funds were raised through ticket sales, as well as through event entertainment including a table raffle and a live auction.

Surprise guests of the night, Amanda and Miracle, of Britain’s Got Talent fame, got our heads and tails ice-breaker off to a flying start.

Event hosts Marc Abraham OBE and Peter Egan provided entertainment throughout the night and oversaw the evening’s auction, which raised thousands of pounds for the Home.

Marc ‘The Vet’ Abraham has been an avid supporter of the Home for many years now. The TV personality and Lucy’s Law campaigner spoke about his time as an ambassador for the Home, supporting ventures from our Dog First Aid Course to the recent Pack In Pet Poverty campaign.

His accomplished co-host Peter Egan has also recently pledged to be an Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home Animal Champion. Peter is an actor, author and activist, well known for his great passion for animal welfare.

Attendees danced into the night, which was a spectacular evening of great food, music and company. Enormous thanks to everyone who generously supported this event.
