Our Goal Is To No Longer Be Needed

Victorian Dog Rescue & Resource Group Inc (VicDRG) has been proactive in animal welfare since 2006. It is a not for profit organisation and registered charity entirely run by volunteers whose goal is to stop the killing in pounds and shelters, to help companion animals in need in the community, and to promote responsible pet ownership.

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. 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
