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.

"Tales from Our Home" - Inspiring stories of dog rescue

This is a book sure to set tails wagging as we open the vault on 80 years of history at the Dogs' Refuge Home. It is a story of dedication, perseverance and unwavering belief that dogs are valued members of our society and deserve to be treated with love, care and above all, compassion. It is also the story of more than 80 rescue dogs, lovingly adopted and embraced by their new "furever" families. Tales of triumph, humour, courage and pure joy will have every dog lover laughing out loud and no doubt shedding a tear or two. This special 80th Anniversary collection has been produced by volunteers and kind sponsors, with every dollar raised going to the Dogs' Refuge Home.
