Lockdown meant that we were only able to rehome a few dogs, the donations from which normally fund 33% of our operations. Now we have many dogs arriving and are able to rehome them, but urgently need funds to support them and, in particular, to pay their vet bills. Any donation large or small will make a significant difference to our survival as a charity. Please donate (click on button at top right) to keep us alive!

Thank you


Based in the heart of Somerset in the South West of England, our passion is for helping dogs and owners in need.


Dogs Friends is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers who are totally committed and relentlessly busy. Almost all our dogs are in individual foster care in the surrounding area as we prefer them to live in a domestic setting where at all possible.

Why are we called Dogs Friends?

Some Of Our Dogs Looking For A Home


We are always looking for volunteers to help us run the Charity.

🐾 Claude - available for adoption 🐾 Claude is an energetic, clever, inquisitive and affectionate dog who is looking for a sensible and active home where he can reach his full potential. Like most Collie types, Claude needs plenty of exercise and mental stimulation – this would allow him to truly thrive! Claude will require firm boundaries and somebody willing to continue his training and socialisation. While at home he likes plenty of affection from his humans and to snooze and snuggle on the sofa. Claude would be better being an only dog as he likes all of the attention to himself. Claude is still learning how to play with toys. He likes to follow a ball but won’t pick it up, but really does love anything he can sit and chew or lick so really enjoys the enrichment licky mats, kongs etc. Claude needs an experienced home as he can struggle with lead reactivity. Our behaviourists will be on hand to support adopters and help put a training plan together for him. Claude would prefer a countryside home with plenty of secure outside space as he loves to spend time in the garden watching the world go by.🐶 Claude needs to be the only dog👶 Claude needs an adult only home🐈 Claude cannot live with catsIf interested in adopting Claude, please fill in an adoption enquiry form: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/claude-2/. ...

Terry's applications have now been reopened with a new home criteria.🐾 Terry - available for adoption 🐾Terry is a very lovely, wire-haired Fox Terrier type girl. She recently arrived with us and was lucky enough to go to a really good foster home where she has settled very well and is being a little superstar. Terry has been excellent with all the other dogs, cats and hens in her foster home. It is surprising that, as she is obviously very much a Terrier, that she is so good with everything! Terry is young and lively but has a fantastic, biddable nature. Terry has not met young children.We are looking for a 5-star country home for Terry, with friendly other dogs for her to play with and learn from. Terry’s past is a mystery but we surmise things have not been too bad for her as she has kept a sunny disposition.🐶 Terry must live with another dog👶 Terry can live with children aged 12 and over🐈 Terry can live with cats and henIf interested in adopting Terry, please fill in an adoption enquiry form: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/terry/. ...
