I picked up Budd aka Joe a lifetime ago around Aug 2005. I’d been wanting a companion while my husband was away and had searched the web and various shelters. I’d selected two dogs at Shenton Park, one was Joe the other was Suzy, who had already been fostered. So I went to take a look at Joe, he was in the run pen, just sitting in the centre doing nothing, looking at nothing, not interested in me or anything else. I thought, he doesn’t look too full of life, but went to the office and asked if I could take a closer look.
For the second year running, this December will see award winning photographer Alex Cearns from Houndstooth Studio set up her famous Santa’s Grotto at the Refuge. She’ll be joined by a very special Refuge personality who will be donning his Santa costume so that Perth’s much-loved pooches can have their very own photo taken with Santa Paws.
A few weeks ago we adopted Wallace a male white and tan Jack Russell aged seven years.
I adopted Bowie (aka Cindy) a few months ago and wanted to tell you how happy and gorgeous she is.
Just 4 weeks ago we were lucky enough to bring home Mia (formerly Turtle). She has settled in so well and already made friends with our 14 year old cat.
My husband and I were looking for a small friend for our dog, George (Papillon), when a friend of ours suggested Shenton Park Dog Refuge Home . And we met Lucky, his previous name was Buddy.
My name is Buzz and I have been in my new home for 3 months now.
Our long term dogs were given an extra treat last month thanks to our very own Fiona Watson who took them out for a day trip and took their photo’s for our 2012 calendar. And, boy, did they enjoy it! Of course, we know how special they are, but the pictures Fiona took are amazing and really capture their true character – just check out our sneak peek of cover‐dog,Tyler!
Hi, my name is Rusty Dusty Spooner-Lancaster! but I only get called that when I’ve done something I shouldn’t have….. that’s not very often, really…..I originally came home cos mum Nat volunteers at the refuge and I wasn’t well and ‘needed a break’.
Hello everyone - this is Sophie here, and I've got a tale to tell you. You might not remember me, but I remember you. In my former life my name was Hope and I was a helter-skelter. Then my life took a turn for the better when I found myself in your shelter.
