Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home


The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is Edinburgh’s oldest Animal Welfare organisation, founded in 1883 by some citizens whose love of dogs motivated them to take action to alleviate the plight of strays roaming the streets of the city at that time.

Their Scottish Charity Number is SC006914.
