At Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, we believe that every animal deserves to live in comfort and safety. We have an open-intake policy, accepting any dog or cat that reaches our door in need, whatever shape, breed or size they may be. Due to this policy, we sadly sometimes take in animals who have severe health conditions. These can come in many forms, including physical conditions, diseases and mental health or behavioural problems. Our team, alongside our veterinary partners, will work for as long as it takes to rehabilitate an animal and find it the perfect loving home. Occasionally there are times when a condition is so severe that we have to make the difficult decision to put an animal to sleep. This is a decision we will never take lightly and is normally made after months, sometimes years, of dedicated treatment and training from our team, where all other options have been exhausted. Where there is hope for a home, we will never give up.
