Dog Rescue Newcastle is a group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue of abandoned, neglected or abused companion animals. We rescue dogs and cats from death row at local pounds and put them into loving foster homes until we can find permanent homes for them.

Dog Rescue Newcastle receives at least two inquiries per week from someone in a domestic violence situation asking if we can help their pets by sheltering or rehoming them. Sometimes people stay in a dangerous situation or sleep rough because they can't get accommodation with their pets. It is heartbreaking for us to receive these calls as we often can't assist because we don't have enough foster carers or a kenneling facility.
We are trying to raise money to build a large insulated shed with concrete floors and roller doors, four runs and exercise areas where we can provide shelter for dogs while their owner flees domestic violence and establishes a new home. This project will cost $40,000 so we are appealing to the community for help.
If you can make any donation, no matter how small, please go to our Pets of Domestic Violence GoFundMe page and make a donation. If you can't donate, please go to the page and share it on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you very much.
