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.

Chelsea - Adopt Me

Adopt a golden oldie!

Chelsea is looking for a loving home where she can retire in peace and enjoy her golden years.

She enjoys having a garden to just stroll around and so she can sniff everything possible, she loves it so much that she would barely notice you there with her however in the home that is a different story as she is very affectionate! Chelsea also enjoys chasing a ball which you will get great entertainment out of as she is so uncoordinated. Just like us, she is looking for a companion to call her own.
