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?

Answer: Dogs +

Some Of Our Dogs Looking For A Home


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

👋🏻 Meet the Team - Sophia 👋🏻"Hello, my name is Sophia. I'm the volunteer Fostering Trainer and I also assist in fostering support and adoptions. I recently began this role, having started my volunteering with Dogs Friends by walking dogs at the kennels and assisting with transportation of dogs. In 2018 I adopted my wonderful companion Tegan from Dogs Friends, and our journey to find our happiness together inspired my passion for dog rescue. My favourite part of my role is introducing new people to the wonderful experience of rescuing - I'm in complete awe of our wonderful foster carers who go above and beyond to support the dogs when they need it the most. If I could be any breed of dog, I would be a greyhound, because I'm lazy and I like snacks." ... See MoreSee Less

Our thoughts are with Deena and John who adopted their beloved and beautiful GSD Kei from us on 2 October 2010 when he was about 2 years old. He passed away on 30 April 2021, aged 12 years and 7 months. “We are also about to lose our 14 year old greyhound, Jade, who absolutely adored her Kei, and who was rescued via DAWG and who had lived with Kei for over 10 years. That leaves us with Robby, another greyhound from DAWG, who we have had for about 16 months, and who was Kei's best mate.” Such sad news but Kei had a wonderful life. ... See MoreSee Less
