We love dogs!

At the Dogs' Refuge Home in Shenton Park we love dogs and are committed to saving them. In fact we save hundreds of unwanted, neglected, abandoned and abused dogs every year.

With around 100 beautiful four legged friends in our care at any one time, chances are your next addition to the family is waiting patiently for you. And with so many abandoned dogs desperate for a second chance at a happy life, consider visiting us before you go to a pet shop or breeder.

If you love dogs then please help us. Take advantage of our dog and puppy training classes; use our boarding services; consider giving a donation or buy some merchandise at our online store. We can't thank you enough for caring!

Please note all adoption enquiries must arrive prior to 3pm to allow sufficient time to go through the adoption process.

You can get the latest Refuge updates by visiting our Facebook page. Please follow us also on Instagram and Twitter

Your gift has gone to the dogs...

With Christmas just around the corner, they don't call it the 'silly season' for no reason. So much to do, so many people to buy for...and what do you buy for someone who has everything??? Why not purchase one of our donation vouchers in lieu of a Christmas gift this year? It's quick, simple and the best bit is that it helps us to continue to improve the lives of dogs all over WA.

You're just a few clicks away from helping our dogs AND getting your Christmas shopping done all at the same time! All you need to do is head to our link below, select the amount you'd like to donate ($20, $50 and $100), and you'll then be able to download a "Your gift has gone to the dogs' PDF, which you can print and customise with your recipients name.
