Lindsay Fyffe-Jardine: Leading Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home
To help support the charity and cover the costs of refreshments, attendees are asked to make a donation via the charity’s donation page: https://edch.org.uk/support-us/donate/ £5 will feed 10 dogs for 1 day. Please ref IoD when you make your donation.
Lindsay is bringing her innovative approach to build on the foundations of this long-established charity that rescues, reunites and rehomes dogs and cats. Recognising that behind a pet crisis is often a person in crisis, the team looks at the whole picture. Lindsay launched a pet foodbank in 2019 which grew in uptake by 140% by spring 2020. Lindsay firmly believes that animal welfare should be working across human related issues in the community, such as isolation, homelessness, and poverty.
