Aus. Hair of the Dog Rescue is a small charitable dog rescue group. Founded in 2015 by a passionate group of dog lovers, dedicated to the ongoing welfare of our canine friends

What do we do?

Rescue: Dogs from pounds on death row, dogs from puppy farms, dogs in need

Rehabilitate:  Provide foster care, food, shelter, veterinary care & retraining

Rehome: Our aim is for our foster dogs to go to the best possible homes. We strive to get the right match for new adoptive parents. Sometimes it may appear we are being over protective, for this we make no apology. The welfare of these dogs will always come first.

Charity: Provide dog and cat food for Baw Baw Food Alliance, for families in hardship.  Assist with dog owners in our local community with basic training
