Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) General Appeal

Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) Inc Other Causes...

Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) Inc has listed 1 other cause:
The Dogs' Refuge Home is a not for profit organisation based in Shenton Park and is dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing of lost, abandoned and surrendered dogs. Established in 1935, the Refuge is one of the oldest independent animal welfare shelters in Australia and each year re-homes more than 900 dogs. A pro-life policy is in place that ensures no dog is euthanased on economic grounds.

Why we are collecting funds?

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 public holidays) 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.

Our Costs

Here's just a sample of our costs and what your donation will support:
  • A New Dog Vet Package = $60 (includes vet check, microchip and vaccination
  • Sterilisation = $150 for a male $180 for a female dog
  • Clinic supplies, cleaning and equipment = $250 per month
  • Dog rescue/collection costs =$1,000 per month (petrol, van maintenance, trainers)
A heartfelt thanks from everyone at the Dogs' Refuge Home and especially from dogs whose lives can be changed for the better through your support.
