Mrs Murray's was founded in 1889, by Mrs Susan Murray, as a place of refuge and shelter for lost and stray dogs and cats in Aberdeen City and Shire. The Home has since expanded to take in animals from their owners, who for a variety of reasons can no longer keep them, and find new homes for them. The home sometimes also caters for a variety of small animals who have been abandoned and need to be placed in loving new homes.
It is the only place of it's kind in the North East and is largely dependent on legacies and public donations to help towards the cost of caring for the animals. Each year around 1000 animals pass through our gates. Most are abandoned and unwanted. The Home is a registered charity and relies on donations and the support of the pubic to help fund the cost of looking after the animals and securing their future.
Mrs Murray's Home for Stray Dogs and Cats is charity registered in Scotland No. SC012708 and registered as a company limited by guarantee in Scotland No: SC227450
