About Paws by the Prom (Open Day)

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home's Open Day has been the highlight of our events calendar for many years and this year it has had a little make over to make it even bigger and better! Now called 'Paws on the Prom' we have a very exciting day in store for all the family.

Entry is free to all the family and you can visit between 12pm-4pm - although we advise you arrive early to take in all the day has to offer. Dogs on leads are always welcome and you will have the opportunity to stroll around our various zones;

Rehoming Zone - this zone will provide you with all the information you will need if you are condisering rehoming a dog or a cat. You will be able to see many of our animals who are currently looking for a forever home and there will be an array of expert advice on hand on pet insurance, training and other vital pet ownership information.

Learning Zone - come and learn about responsible pet ownership, pet first aid and other demonstrations designed to teach you something new about looking after your pet.

Fun Zone - lots of fun activities for both human and dog, from funfair stalls, bouncy castles and tombolas to challenging your four legged friend in the ever popular and hilarious 'temptation ally'.

Shopping Zone - we will have various retailers on hand with lots of excellent goods available for sale for both you and your furry friends.

Refulling Zone - after a busy day at Paws on the Prom you might just need time for a break, we will have our usual tea and coffee tent as well as various food vendors on hand to provide you with some delicious grub.

Kennel and Cattery tours - of course it wouldn't be our Open Day without our famous kennel and cattery tours! You never know, you might just meet your new best friend.

So come along with your family and four legged friends for a fantastic, free day out!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paws by the Prom (Open Day) are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
