In Memory

Leaving a gift in memory of a loved one or beloved pet to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home can be a special way to celebrate their life and the causes they cared about most. It can be comforting to know that each gift given in their memory will help the dogs and cats who come through our doors every day at their most vulnerable. You can choose to pay tribute to their life through funeral collections, a dog or cat pen sponsorship or our bespoke memorial tree.

Funeral Gifts

The Home is extremely grateful to those who choose to take funeral collections or refer gifts to our charity in lieu of funeral flowers. In doing so, a loved-one’s memory can be honoured in the knowledge that donated funds will benefit the hundreds of dogs and cats we care for each year by providing veterinary care, food, shelter and enrichment.

If you would like further advice on making a funeral donation, please contact our fundraising team at

Memory Tree

We often welcome visitors to the Home who have recently lost a pet or need to surrender their dog or cat that they can no longer care for. Grieving the loss of pet or saying goodbye to an animal can be a sad and difficult experience.

These memory trees situated within our reflection garden area provide a beautiful way to memorialise a pet, by dedicating a leaf in the name of a beloved pet and use the garden as a space to reflect on the life of their dog or cat.
