At the Dogs' Refuge Home 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.

Rocco - Adopt Me!

Rocco is just a big teddy bear

Rocco may look tough but he really is a big teddy bear and a sensitive soul. Rocco is a lovely boy who is very playful and affectionate once he feels safe with you. He is looking for a calm home with gentle owners who will include him in their lives and take him on daily outings.

Ideally, we love for Roccoa - a 2.5 year American Staffy Bull Terrier -  to find a home withl be part time workers, as he enjoys companionship. His new home should comprise just adults or older children where this is not lots of noise.

Check out Rocco is action in this short video!

If you think you can offer Rocco a loving home, pop in to meet him!

If you have a few spare hours, we'd love to hear from you. To register, email us at

Can you lend a hand?
