At the Dogs' Refuge Home we love dogs

shop online

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, that all adoption enquiries must arrive prior to 3pm to allow sufficient time to go through the adoption process.

Help Bonnie & Clyde escape the kennels this Christmas

Brother and sister duo, Bonnie & Clyde, absolutely adore each other and we wouldn’t dare think of separating them! So, we are looking for a home for these two beauties and we'd love to find them one in time for Christmas.

They are 3 year old Staghound crosses. Obviously, due to their size, they'll need a big backyard to play in and an extra big bed to sleep on inside.

Clyde is the more affectionate of the two and very tolerant of Bonnie's silly-ness. They love cuddles and playing with people and toys. Both dogs would benefit from attending a dog training course to get to know their new family and establish a bond.

If you think you could offer them a loving home, please give us a call on 9381 8166.
