We are desperately in need of funds. It is extremely rare for the donation we receive when rehoming a dog to be more than we have spent on the dog and, in the great majority of cases, would not even cover the cost of vet treatment for the dog. For many dogs, we incur very high vet bills. We can only survive because of the generosity of our supporters. Any donation, large or small, will make a significant difference to our survival as a charity. If you can, PLEASE DONATE 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.

For example could you help us by walking a dog or find homes for dogs that are with our Foster Carers or help with the transportation of dogs and the distribution of food and bedding?

Dogs Friends Foster care somerset

Every year we spend tens of thousands of pounds on vet bills for the hundreds of dogs that come into our care.

That’s why your participation in the lottery organised by our Meds for Mutts Club will make such a difference.

Cally is just having no luck finding a home - not one single application since her profile went live! Cally adores people and would make a wonderful companion - she would be the perfect nap buddy! We often see high volumes of applications for the more traditionally cute dogs whilst other dogs are overlooked for months on end. If you are looking to adopt a rescue dog in need please consider the slightly older ones, the ones with a few extra rolls, the ones with quirks - they deserve a home just as much!
