About this organisation

The Dogs’ Homes have been caring for dogs since 1950. Every single day we re-unite lost dogs with their owners, adopt homeless dogs into new families, provide information on keeping dogs and communities safe and work to improve welfare outcomes for all dogs. Our aim is to build a caring and responsible culture of dog ownership throughout the community. Nestle Purina Petcare are proud sponsors of the Animal Welfare League Australia, providing food and pet care support for dogs and cats in their care.

The Tasmanian Canine Defence League Inc. (TCDL) is committed to being the best friend to all dogs in Tasmania but particularly stray, abandoned, lost and unwanted dogs and in ensuring dogs and their welfare remain the central focus of our activities.
