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 +

Dogs Friends

Here's a story that will melt your heart, make your eyes leak water with the joy of the real happy ever after for an old boy who just needed to be given THAT chance.

Alexander our Large x Breed 3 legged rescue boy.
Came into us with his bestest pal Slinky Girl. Brought over originally from Romania by a Rescue and into the loving care of their new home and human friend. Some months passed and very sadly their lovely new mum died and both were left homeless once more.
Both dogs had the most beautiful natures, however some health issues reared its self and for Slinky, she unfortunately died from Cancer.
That left our dear old man on his own, not knowing where his mate had gone and not knowing when he would ever find that special someone to take his head in both hands and tell him he was now safe and loved once more.
Well we found them...or was it they found us!!!!
Amazing here is his forever piks in his very posh London HAPPY EVER AFTER HOME.
Living the life he truly has deserved for so long and with a little mate to keep him company.
We love you Alexander xxx
