Dogs & Puppies

We have dogs and puppies big and small, all breeds and personalities. Your new dog will require lots of company, exercise, time and training to ensure a long and happy life. Please choose well to ensure the right dog for you, and that you are right for the dog, as it will always need to be part of your family and suit your lifestyle. We reserve the right to sell any animal in the refuge to you, and terms and conditions of sale are in place to ensure the long term welfare of the animals.


If you are renting through a real estate agent, we will ask to see the formal rental agreement stating “dog allowed” from your landlord or real estate agent (or an email if your lease is not up to date). If you are renting privately, we ask for a letter from the landlord giving permission for a dog, plus a copy of their rates notice to show proof of ownership.  If you are a home owner, please bring a copy of your current rates notice to show proof of ownership. If you live in a unit or townhouse, we will also ask to see approval from the body corp to own a dog - this applies even if you own your own home.

This might sound like a lot of paperwork to provide to adopt a dog, but we want to ensure that once a dog is adopted, it is adopted for life and we want to try to reduce the circumstances that may result in a dog having to be returned to us. We thank you for understanding this.

If you own another dog we will ask you to bring your dog in to do a 'match up' with the dog you are interested in to ensure they get along. Also, all the family should meet and greet your potential new pet.


Make sure you know your local council regulations on dog ownership. We refer you to Local Law No 2 (Animal Management) 2011 in particular to fencing. "Dog owners are responsible for preventing their dogs from roaming and causing a nuisance. Suitable fenced enclosures are required to contain dogs on properties. The enclosure must be suitably constructed to prevent the animal from escaping".

We may need to do a check on your fences, and an interview process may be required for some of our animals.

Prices begin at around $200 which includes vaccination, micro-chipping, worming and de-sexing for grown-up dogs. A bond of $200 is required for a puppy which will be refunded to you when you bring the puppy back for de-sexing. Ownership will not legally transfer to you until the puppy is returned for de-sexing.  
All the dogs and puppies you see below are currently staying with us at the Refuge.  Please note that although our website is updated as soon as we adopt, there is a chance that the animal you may be interested in may have been adopted by the time you visit them on site, so the sooner you visit us, the sooner you may have a wonderful friend to take home with you.
