Friend of Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of dogs and cats across Edinburgh and the Lothians? Join our team at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home and you will have the opportunity to support the Home and your local community with being part of a new fundraising group. From organising and promoting fundraising, to supporting with campaigns, talks and events in your local area you’ll be making a big difference to the animals in our care.

We are currently looking for animal ambassadors who will play an invaluable part of Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, complementing and enhancing the work we do, bringing skills and experience that support us to achieve our aims and mission.

Micro Volunteering

This role is ideal for those who may be short of time and can’t commit but are eager to do something to help. As a micro volunteer you may share a story or hashtag, complete online surveys and help spread the word about fundraising, events and volunteering at the Home.

The beauty of this role is it’s completely flexible and can be done anytime anywhere. Micro volunteering is convenient and doesn’t require any ongoing commitment and can be done from the comfort of your own home!

From signing a petition or retweeting a message to helping with valuable research projects.

By becoming a micro volunteer your small actions will help make a big difference to the hundreds of dogs and cats that come through our door every year.

Please contact volunteering@edch.org.uk for more information on Micro Volunteering.
