Need Help?

Pet Foodbank

The foodbank offers wet and dry food, jackets, collars, leads, bowls and bedding. Our dedicated and passionate staff will also be on hand to offer pet care advice as part of this service.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home cared for 2,367 dogs and 771 cats in 2018, many came from loving homes and families. Social problems such as financial issues, illness, homelessness and domestic abuse can all mean people might struggle to feed or look after their pet. We hope the pet foodbank will help empower owners to continue to care for their own animals.

To use our pet foodbank, please call us on 0131 669 5331 or email

Please note: not all items will be available at all times in the foodbank. We cannot guarantee that we will have the specific products, quantities and sizes that you may request.

Donate Items To Paws Pantry

The Home’s pet foodbank, Paws Pantry, launched in 2019, with a goal of supporting pet owners in the community during times of need, and often in times of financial difficulty. In an effort to expand our reach to all those who need this service, we have since partnered with over 50 human foodbanks, and have supported over 7,000 pets in 2021 through this service alone.

Paws Pantry is needed now more than ever, and as our reach increases, so does our stock requirement. We urgently need small packs or multipacks of dog and cat food. We are also always in need of dog and cat treats, blankets, toys and jackets.

Could you help by donating food and other essentials? You can do so the following ways:

  • Drop your donation off directly at the Home (26 Seafield Road East, Edinburgh, EH15 1EH) Monday to Sunday from 9am until 4pm
  • Purchase your donations from our Amazon Wishlist, here
  • Set up a donation station, such as at your workplace, community group or school
