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.

Lovely Loppy and beautiful Bauer want homes to call their own.

Loppy and Bauer

These two have been helping each other improve their doggie social skills.

Through parallel walks and playdates they have been teaching each other how to interact and play appropriately. They have learnt to adjust their behaviour to compensate for the differences in size and agility. They have also learnt to respect each other's space, and to control their own excitement level.
In this most recent play date, Loppy even allowed Bauer to play with some of her toys!

For their foster parents it has been very rewarding working with these dogs and they are very proud of them, but would really like to see them find their forever homes soon. They have been hidden away in foster for far too lon
