Your Invitation to Give a Dog a Second Chance at Life

The Dogs' Refuge Home is a substantial operation, intaking well over 1000 unwanted dogs every year. We open to the public 7 days a week (excluding Good Friday and Christmas Day) and at any time will have over 100 dogs onsite and more through a foster network.

Our operating costs far exceed our income and we rely heavily on the generosity of the community to help us continue with this vital work.

Before offering our dogs for adoption we undertake thorough veterinary and behavioural assessments. All new arrivals are vaccinated, microchipped, de-wormed and sterilised as part of the adoption process. Dogs who arrive with behavioural issues receive remedial training before being re-homed and similarly we accept and treat dogs with medical needs.

Your support by either a one-off donation or a regular monthly pledge will greatly assist us in continuing to offer the best possible care and support to our dogs before we find their new forever home.
