The Dogs’ Refuge Home is committed to building a strong and sustainable organisation through good governance that underpins and guides the delivery of high quality services for our dogs and the community.
The Home is led by a committed volunteer Board who are elected by the Home’s Membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October. They are guided by the Home’s Constitution and Objects of Association. The Home is a Designated Gift Recipient and operates on a charitable, not-for-profit basis.
Our current Board as elected at the AGM in October 2018 includes the following members.

People with specific skills in organisation and business development, HR, IR, IT, risk, finance, workplace safety, fundraising, project management, dog or general animal welfare, government, building and maintenance are always encouraged to contact our Board and offer short or longer term assistance.
