Make a Donation

By making a one-off or regular donation today, you will be helping to care for the hundreds of lost and abandoned dogs and cats that arrive with us each year. Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home receives no regular government or statutory funding so depends entirely on the generosity of our supporters to continue our vital work. However you choose to give, your gift will help bring unwanted pets closer to their second chance at happiness.

One-off Donation

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is a registered charity and relies solely on donor support to rescue, renunite and rehome hundreds of stray and unwanted pets every year. Your donation will be used to provide food, shelter, veterinary care and training for our animals, in addition to other day-to-day running costs of this busy rescue centre.

Regular Donation

Regular giving provides ongoing support to the Home to ensure that we can continue to accept any dog or cat that reaches our door, whatever their breed or condition. It allows us to continue to offer the highest level of care for these stray and unwanted pets, and do whatever is humanely possible to rehabilitate and give them the second chance in life they deserve.


Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home accepts cryptocurrency donations. You can donate via the Giving Block widget on our website; there you will also find a list of accepted currency.

Without the generosity of our supporters, we could not fulfil our mission of rescuing, reuniting and rehoming lost, stray and abandoned dogs and cats throughout the East of Scotland
