Corporate Volunteering

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home offers a range of fun and rewarding team volunteering opportunities to corporate groups of four to 20 people. Help us with hands-on tasks to enhance the Home’s facilities, or assist with fundraising activities and events, while making a valuable difference to the dogs and cats in our care.

Corporate Volunteering Opportunities

Corporate volunteering at the Home is currently on hold however if your workplace wishes to help the dogs and cats in our care by taking part in a team challenge, virtual sporting dare or fundraising event then please get in touch. We would love to hear from you!

We have a range of volunteering opportunities and projects to suit corporate groups. Below are some examples of tasks you could take on. For a current task list, please contact

  • Brighten up the Night: our night kennel is a safe place for dogs picked up during the night by Police Scotland. Your team can help give it a fresh coat of paint.
  • Kerb Appeal: Help us put our best paw forward by cleaning external roadside signage, picking up litter and weeding and trimming hedges.
  • A Day by the Sea: Our seaside paddocks are well-used to exercise our furry friends. Help us with some gardening and maintenance!
  • Soap and Suds: Our vans get a lot of mileage transporting pets to vet appointments and running other important errands. Help us make them spic and span with this soapy task.
  • Charity Shop Hijack: Your team can hijack our store for a day! Use your customer care skills, local contacts, and staff know-how to sell sell sell.
  • Paperclip Challenge: Starting with one paperclip, you will attempt to carry out a series of trades to obtain an item of higher value each time. You will then sell your final item and the money you raise will go towards our rescue services.

Team Building With a Difference

Our corporate volunteering days provide your team with a an excellent chance to bond with one another, while contributing to a very worthy cause.

As a charity that receives no government or statutory funding, we rely on public donations and legacies to support our operational needs. We often lack the tools, materials, support and investment necessary to carry out essential maintenance tasks. We would greatly value your team’s time and financial contribution to make some of these possible.

Contact our team for an up-to-date task list, taking into account the cost of materials required and your budget for the day. No budget? Consider office-based fundraising activities to raise funds for your materials. Need some help with ideas? Give us a call so we can talk things through and provide support where needed to find the best corporate volunteering opportunity for your business.
