    Rescue places in Victoria:

    Pets Haven|Dogs and cats for adoption

    Victorian Dog Rescue and Resource Group Inc. (VicDRG)

    Breed specific ones like

    Sharpei Rescue

    Luv-a-Lub

    or simply go to PetRescue - find your new best friend! On that website you can search all the rescues in Australia (and also do state specific searches).

    Edit: We got our girl through Pets Haven and they are fantastic! I was also in contact with Victorian Dog Rescue when we were looking for a dog and they were really nice and helpful too! Just keep in mind that they are very busy and are mostly run by volunteers. So they might not get back to you straight away or might be a bit short on the phone because you called at a "bad" time.

    Hi Spuddy
