At Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home we understand that choosing to surrender a pet can be an extremely difficult decision, but that changes in living arrangements, ill health, financial difficulty or other factors can make it necessary for the long-term welfare of the animal.
If you feel that surrendering your dog or cat is the right choice for you, we recommend phoning Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home on 0131 669 5331 first, so our staff can talk you through the surrendering process.
We also understand that surrendering a pet may be the result of personal crisis. The following services may be able to assist:
Surrendering an animal can only be done during our opening hours of 9am-4pm, at our rehoming centre at 26 Seafield Road East, EH15 1EH. Unfortunately, Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home doesn’t have the available resource to collect surrendered dogs and cats.
