Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

West Calder (Edinburgh)

Come say hello!

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

*Please note we cannot currently rehome to anyone outside of Scotland due to travel restrictions*.

Manager Susan Tonner and the team look after 37 kennels filled with dogs waiting for their forever homes. We're only closed one day a week (Tuesday), so there are plenty of opportunities to drop in; who knows, you might find the dog of your dreams!

Our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Úna Race, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre. She also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. She also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
