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.
