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.

Emergencies in rescue are not uncommon, but we had a particularly urgent case yesterday when a local vet phoned and asked if we could immediately take a one year old Frenchie boy. Thanks to several people pulling together, we were able to offer an emergency space overnight and this boy is now off to a foster home ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
