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.

Cooper - Adopt Me!

Cooper is just a big marshmallow!

Cooper may look big and tough but he really is just a big marshmallow! This 8 year old Doberman X still has lots of spunk and energy. He loves a daily walk and a family that will include him in their lives. Cooper will be a great family dog - he's very easy to care for and already trained!!

He may suit full time workers so long as he is given enough time to settle into his new home and his daily exercise needs can be met. He could also live with a family with kids over 8 years old.

  If you think you could offer Cooper his perfect home, he'd love to meet you!
