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.

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?

🐾 Nipper and Bella - available for foster (separately) 🐾We continue to be very busy and have several new dogs due in shortly. Unfortunately, at this time of year, we are always short of foster carers due to so many having holidays. Last year was obviously an exception and we had plenty of foster carers which was wonderful! Tomorrow we will be welcoming two Jack Russells into our care. One is a ten year old boy called Nipper but he certainly doesn’t live up to his name! The other is a very sweet, friendly 6 year old girl called Bella. They would both love a sofa to snooze on in a house as the only dog - they love to be in the spotlight stealing all of the attention! If you would like to foster one of these pooches, please get in touch! 🐕 We would love to hear from you via our fostering enquiry forms: dogsfriends.me.uk/fostering/. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾 Bella - available for adoption 🐾Bella is a sweet playful girl with a friendly nature. She excels in her role of neighbourhood watch coordinator but often sleeps on the job! Bella would prefer to be the only dog, living with children over 10 (due to her mouthy play style). If you would like to see (and hear!) this girl snoring away on your sofa, please fill in our adoption enquiry form: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/bella-2/.These beautiful images were captured by Mandi Perkins. Mandi donated her time and services in which we are truly grateful for. A message from Bella's foster carer: "We loved our photoshoot with Mandi. She is a total natural with dogs and had lots of time, patience and funny noises to catch Bella's attention. Mandi got some wonderful shots despite not having the most attentive of subjects. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend." If you would like to book your pooch in with Mandi, please get in touch via Instagram: www.instagram.com/mandipphotography/. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾 Duke - available for adoption 🐾This handsome boy is looking for a family to call his own! Duke came to us from a family home but unfortunately, the family were unable to give him the support his condition requires. Since then, Duke has proved to us that he wants to learn and is very quick in doing so. Whilst he is still learning dog etiquette, Duke can be boisterous and cheeky! 🏠 Duke would love someone who can keep him company for most of the day as he loves to be around people. 🐕 Unfortunately, due to his epilepsy, Duke needs to be an only dog.👶 His heart of gold is too much for young kids as often forgetting his own size, Duke forgets to pump the brakes when he comes running towards you! We are therefore looking for homes with children over 16 due to his play style and mouthing. If you would like to give this boy a chance, please fill in an adoption enquiry form: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/duke-2/. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾 Roxy - available for adoption 🐾 “Hi, I’m Roxy! I’m a middle-aged lady around 8 years old. I don’t worry about cats, chickens, sheep or horses. I’m not sure about cars, people and random things that we meet on a walk. I’m looking for someone who doesn’t want to smother me and treat me like a child. Give me a chance and I’ll come to you when I’m ready.I prefer calm people and places and would like a house where not too many demands are made on me at least until I feel ready! I’m looking for a home with another dog. It would be super to have a friend to play with but just another pal is great.” 🐕If you think Roxy is the girl for you, please fill in our adoption enquiry form: dogsfriends.me.uk/portfolio_page/roxy-3/. ...
