Savvy online buyer or charity store hunter? No matter how you like to shop, you can support Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. Good karma while you nab a bargain? How pawsome is that?
Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has a charity shop in Stockbridge, as well as the Portobello shop run by the Friends of Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.
Our Stockbridge store opened in 2017 and thanks to ongoing generous donations of clothes and household goods, it has since provided a vital income stream for our work to rescue, reunite and rehome lost and unwanted pets in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The shop is manned by a group of hard-working and much-valued volunteers. In addition to a range of new dog and cat accessories, toys and treats, it sells donated goods, including clothes, books, accessories, homewares and bric-a-brac.
In addition to our Stockbridge shop, we are generously supported by the Friends of Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home shop on Portobello High Street. This shop has been run by ‘the Friends’ volunteer group since 1993, during which time they have contributed more than £1 million to the Home. We are so grateful for their continued support, and that of the Portobello community.
We’re always on the hunt for enthusiastic volunteer shop assistants to help in our stores. If you are looking for a retail volunteering opportunity, find out more about volunteering via the link below.Find Out More
