About Us

The Dog Aid Society of Scotland is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). Our premises are based in Edinburgh.
We re-home dogs on a home from home basis. We do not have kennel facilities so ask you to look after the dog until a new home can be found. This means your dog will go straight into its new home alleviating the stress and anxiety a lot of dogs suffer when going into kennels. Please check our Dog Re-Homing page for more details..

Our Mission

To find loving new homes for dogs which cannot be maintained in their present homes and which might otherwise be euthanased. To give information on every aspect of dog ownership.To provide Veterinary Aid for those in need. To help reduce the number of unwanted dogs by providing Neutering Vouchers. To encourage responsible dog ownership by providing dog waste disposal bags as part of the Society’s Dog Fouling Project.

Adopt a dog

We ask for a fee of £70 if you re-home one of our dogs. The society prefers not to re-home dogs to people who are working full time unless the dog has been accustomed to this and is happy with the routine of being left. At any one time there may be a few people applying for the same dog, therefore, we try to re-home the dog to the prospective owner whose circumstances best match the dog’s needs. Please note we only re-home within Scotland.
PLEASE NOTE: THE SOCIETY DOES NOT HAVE KENNEL FACILITIES, ALL OF THE DOGS WE HAVE AVAILABLE FOR RE-HOMING STAY WITH THEIR CURRENT OWNER WHILE WE LOOK FOR A NEW HOME.
