Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) Inc

Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) General Appeal


Every year thousands of dogs are left abandoned, lost and unwanted in WA pounds or surrendered by owners who are unable or unwilling to provide for them. 

The Dogs’ Refuge Home in Shenton Park is one of Australia’s oldest animal welfare organisations and has been rescuing and re-homing dogs since 1935.

We believe that all dogs deserve a loving and caring home and actively work to promote responsible dog ownership.

Why we are collecting funds?

The Dogs' Refuge Home is a large scale, kennel-based operation. We open to the public 7 days a week (including most public holidays) and at any time will have around 100 dogs available for adoption.

We are self-funded and our annual operating costs far exceed our income. We rely heavily on the generosity of the community to help us continue with our vital rescue work.

The Home works with a number of other rescue groups and local Shires around the State to provide as many as dogs as possible with a second at life. We bring dogs down from the North-West, Mid-West and South-West and Great Southern and actively work with local governments in Armadale, Gosnells and Wanneroo.

We provide compassionate and quality care to give every dog a much deserved second chance. This includes:

  • Undertaking thorough veterinary and behavioural assessments.
  • Sterlising, vaccinating, microchipping, worming and fleaing and all new arrivals and puppies when they come of age.
  • Surgery or other vet treatments to address any existing conditions include treating mange and other skin conditions, dental, eyes, ears and lumps and bumps!
  • Providing remedial training to dogs who need additional support before they are re-homed or supporting them in a foster home.

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.

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.
