EDINBURGH Dog and Cat Home has a new logo, a new website and a new vision!
The changes reflect the organisation’s new ‘Beyond Our Walls’ strategy, which is published this week – a far-reaching document which sets out the home’s aims and ambitions moving forward.
Whilst the charity will continue to be a safe place for dogs and cats that need a new home, this new strategy will look at how they can better support pet owners in the community by preventing them to have to give up their pet in the first place.
From taking the lead in organising ‘Pet Food Banks’, to providing an education programme to schools and groups, the home’s mission has never been clearer: to protect loving homes, to find loving homes and to run a loving home.
Says CEO, Lindsay Fyffe-Jardine: “We all are facing difficult times right now, and, while our role is to provide a voice, and a place of safety for dogs and cats in need, we also look at the whole animal and their story.
“Where there is a pet in crisis, there is often a person in crisis – it is our wish to keep a dog or cat in a loving home – that’s better for them, their owner and the wider community. The Home can play a positive role in the journey to recovery for a person by helping them to look after their pet. Allowing us to continue to be there for those dogs and cats who need us most.”
