We can't save them all... but we can try

Victorian Dog Rescue and Resource Group Inc (VicDRG) is a not for profit organisation whose purpose is to decrease the number of dogs killed in Victorian pounds each year. Nearly all these dogs could be rehomed and end up in pounds and shelters through no fault of their own. Our goal is to no longer be needed.

Get To Know VicDRG

We believe the life of every one of our companion animals is important and must be valued. We do not need to talk about being pro-life or no-kill because the proof is in what we do every day.  Every animal that comes into our care is treated as we would our own family dog or cat. No expense is spared to restore our charges to health. 

VicDRG is a foster care network and does not operate a shelter. Apart from one paid administrative person we are all volunteers.  Everyone gives of their time, skills and often money to ensure we can continue to work to save and improve the quality of life of our companion animals. read more
