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?

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.

We’re not going to be able to have our Christmas Dog Show this year, but we’re going to have an Online Dog Show instead. We’ve set up a separate Facebook group page, but for some reason (we’ve asked an expert!) when we put the link in here, our post reaches hardly anyone. So PLEASE, search for Dogs Friends Online Dog Show and start entering!!
There will be 20 classes in all. We’re going to have the first four classes judged next week and then two classes judged each week up until Christmas, when Best in Show will be judged and prizes will be distributed. PLEASE ENTER AND SPREAD THE WORD!!!!
The full list of classes will be posted tomorrow.
