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

It's almost that time of year again, so mark your calendars for our 2018 annual Street Appeal!

Our wonderful Volunteers will hit the streets of Perth to raise much-needed funds for our pooches.

Did you know that our Home is almost entirely self funded? That is why our Street Appeal is so important. Events like this help us to continue to give abandoned and abused dogs a second chance.

So, if you see our volunteers out and about in the city on the 6th of April, please dig deep and donate to help our four-legged friends.

If your workplace would like to get involved and shake tins and you're located within the Perth CBD, please email

Foster homes needed
