Desperate For Love Dog Pound Rescue

Active in Western Australia

Rescue Group

At Desperate for Love Dog Pound Rescue (DFL) we aim to find rescue dogs their permanent homes with families who will commit to loving them for the rest of their days!

The dogs in our care live temporarily with foster families while we prepare them for adoption; completing their vaccinations, microchipping, desexing & other medical care, and getting to know their personalities and needs. We don’t have a central location as our foster carers are based all over Perth, so you are welcome to view our dogs online and contact us by email if you would like to apply for & meet one of our dogs.

Please be aware that each dog may have many applications for their adoption and only one applicant can be chosen; our goal is to select the home best matched to the needs of the individual dog & while we do our best to notify unsuccessful applicants or suggest a more suitably matched dog, we appreciate your patience and understanding.

As our dogs are usually rescued from pounds, we are often unaware of their age, breed and background. While we do try to list an approximate age & breed, there are no guarantees when it comes to rescue dogs.

When you adopt a DFL dog, their adoption fee goes towards paying for their vet work along with helping other dogs in need! We also rescue dogs that are very old or ill and care for them under our rescue for whatever time they have left – these are our 'Forever Fosters'.

If you’d like to donate to DFL, our bank details are: Desperate for Love Dog Pound Rescue Inc. BSB: 086-136 Account No: 14-860-4310

Adoption Process


1. Click "Enquire about this pet" to contact us & we will email you an Expression of Interest form to return

2. 'Meet & Greet' with the dog and their carer

3. Fence Inspection

4. Trial period commences

Dogs listed as "Foster Carer Needed", are looking for a temporary home while their vet work is completed and while they wait for their forever home. They may also be fostered with the view to adoption. Please email us for more information.

Sorry we can’t take calls, as our rescue is run entirely by volunteers, but we endeavour to respond to your email as soon as possible. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
