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?

Some Of Our Dogs Looking For A Home


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

Young at heart Harold is ready to find his forever family! 🐾Harold arrived with us in a terrible state, having been left with untreated dental issues which left him in agony. Fortunately with some urgent vet care and lots of TLC from his foster parents he has truly flourished.🏡 Harold would much prefer to live with other dogs, he takes great comfort from his pooch pals.🏡 Harold is very sweet natured but still overcoming his trauma and so needs a patient home who understand that you’ll need to earn his trust. 🏡 Harold is in foster care in Langport, and all adoption procedure information can be found here: dogsfriends.me.uk/adopting/Full profile here: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/harold/ ...

10 more souls saved ❤️We welcomed several new dogs today, and once again are heartbroken to see such sad dogs. We hope that some of them will be able to move into foster homes in the coming days, if we can find placements for them. Three of the girls are 11 month old Bichon Frise who were born as part of a litter at a breeding premises. They were not sold and so they were kept to be bred from, but fortunately the demand for puppies has started to slow down and so their breeder decided not to ‘use’ them. Heartbreakingly, it was too late for the rest of the litter but the breeder was convinced to hand over the remaining three. Other arrivals include four very sad French Bulldogs, all of whom need some TLC and patience but will no doubt go on to live happy lives now they are safe 🌈 Our three Cavalier ladies are going to need some real decompression and work to overcome their sad starts, but today marks the start of a safe life for them. Poor Ruby is grossly overweight but hopefully some time pottering around the yard and exploring the secure paddock will help her shift the pounds and feel more comfortable. Fostering appeal: If you are willing to help foster and are available to start now (subject to home and reference checks) please sign up: dogsfriends.me.uk/fostering/ ... See MoreSee Less
