In December 2019, we created our Pup-Cycle campaign, which not only looks to limit waste by recycling collars, but also further supports dog homes by providing them with dog collars. As an extension to our Puppy Pack offer, we encourage customers to return their outgrown puppy collars to us rather than throw them away. We repair/up-cycle the collar where necessary and then donate them to a dog home in the UK. Below are details of our donations so far.
How to return your Puppy Collar:
Simply pop it in the post to Stocky & Dee, 54 Timber Bush, Edinburgh, EH66QH. Please include a note with your name and email address and we will send over your £5 voucher upon receipt. Thank you!
Our first Pup-Cycle donation went to the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home. As we are now based in Edinburgh, we looked to start with a local charity and these guys were the first that came to mind. Established in 1883, this home has helped thousands of animals, and although our collar donation is a drop in the ocean for them, we hope the collars will bring some happiness to a few pups in need.

Our February Pup-Cycle donations went to PADS - Perthshire Abandoned Dogs Society.
Formed in 1985, they are a well-loved, long-established, local dog rescue charity.

Our April Pup-Cycle donations went to Mrs Murrays Dog & Cat Home in Aberdeen. The Home was founded in 1889 by Mrs Susan Murray as a place of refuge and shelter for stray and abandoned dogs and cats in the city and county of Aberdeen. This continues to be a central role for the Home with around 1000 such animals passing through each year.

Our June donations went to a gorgeous charity based in Glasgow called GIVE A DOG A BONE who focus on helping provide funds for the over 60s that struggle to care for their current dogs, or are looking to rehome a dog from a shelter. We all know how incredible a companion a dog makes and how they can really change lives.

Our July donations went to Save Our Spaniels. This gorgeous charity are UK based and help spaniels and bretons that have been abandoned, dumped or relinquished to perreras (kill stations) and shelters across the world, with a view to finding them loving homes. All our rescues are assessed in UK foster homes prior to rehoming.

This month's donation of collars went to Pro Dogs Direct. Pro Dogs Direct became a registered Charity in 2006 and is mostly run by volunteers. Their vision to, wherever possible, rehome dogs directly from foster homes to permanent homes without going into kennels.
