As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, many owners are being forced to give up their beloved pets. Which means animal shelters like Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home are busier than ever. If you are looking for a rewarding companion who will love you unconditionally, these are the dogs currently available for adoption at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. If you are interested in meeting one of them, contact the rescue on 0131 669 5331 or visit the website. And if you’re not able to adopt, you can also support the charity by donating dog food or fundraising for them.
