At Stocky & Dee we appreciate the growing need for support within our dog charities and love to help out where possible. This began with the launch of our Rainbow Collection during lockdown in 2019.
Off the back of the popularity of the NHS rainbow image we created a rainbow collar with which we wanted to support a dog charity who might be struggling with fundraising. Mrs Murrays Dog & Cat Home in Aberdeen receives 50% of all profits made from the Rainbow collection and we're delighted to have raised well over £1000 for them so far.
In December 2019 we create our Pup-Cycle campaign which not only looks to limit waste by recycling collars, but also supports dog homes further by providing 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, 121 Giles Street, Edinburgh, EH66BZ. 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 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 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.
