They Won't Be Lonely This Christmas

As we come to the end of another rollercoaster year, we are reflecting on the challenges and highlights of the past 12 months. This year have been tough on everyone, but it has been an absolute delight to see so many dogs and cats get the second chance that they deserve.

For every abandoned dog and cat that has come through our door, we have watched another prosper and go on to their forever loving home. None of what we do here at the Home – protecting and caring for dogs and cats – would be possible without you.

A Tough Year At Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home

The amazing support from our generous community has helped us to rescue more than 120 dogs and 50 cats so far this year – many needing intensive surgical treatment, aftercare, training and a whole lot of love and care. Some have ended up with us because of heart-breaking decisions, others because of abandonment, but one thing is certain – we are their only chance, and our work is only possible with your support.


At Christmas, our work does not stop. Over the coming weeks, our dedicated team of staff and volunteers prepare for another busy season of surrenders, reunions, and rehoming.

One particular case from last Christmas had a huge impact on the team.

The dogs and cats also have their very own list for Santa this Christmas. We have helped put together a wishlist over on Amazon full of essentials and some treats for the animals. Take a look – Amazon Wishlist
