About Us

The Dog Aid Society of Scotland is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). Our premises are based in Edinburgh and we do not have kennel facilities.

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 Objectives

  • 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.


The Society provides dog waste disposal bags.

Bags are available for a donation from our office at Blackford Avenue.


The Society provides financial assistance to dog owners who are on a low income. To see if you qualify for a £75 voucher to go towards the cost of neutering your male dog or £100 for your female dog or to find out about Veterinary Aid Scheme if your dog needs vet treatment.
