About Us

Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue specialise in saving LARGE BREED dogs who have found themselves in Australia’s pound system, from neglectful situations and from backyard breeders who are engaging in irresponsible re-homing.
Also when able, we take in surrender requests from owners who are unable to keep their dog or re-home them themselves.

Rescue organisations like ours rely heavily on foster carers and donations. Fostering a dog is an incredibly rewarding experience, as you may be responsible for being the first hug that dog has had in years, you may teach them to sit, to come when called and how to be a loving, loyal pet and eventually, helping them to find a permanent home where they are understood, loved and secure.

Adopting from us means you have ongoing support from our team as well as a fully vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped and desexed pet who will be forever grateful for their second chance at life with you.

Animals, in particular dogs, have always been an overflowing passion of mine.
I’m the one who smiles at every dog walking past, who points out every dog that they see, who will love on all shapes, sizes, breeds and ages.
Since joining the FSDR team, I have a bigger appreciation and love for these larger beautiful souls, fallen in love, time and time again.

There is just no words to 100% put into perspective how it feels to see our dogs be adopted into the most loving homes, it never gets old!
The journey between the pick up from the pound, broken and on death row, to their final destination with a forever loving family is hands down, the most rewarding experience I have ever been a part of.

Our team is just here to try and make some sort of dent in one of the toughest, most heartbreaking yet heart warming industries out there. 
It can be an emotional roller coaster but this rescue is now something I hold very close to my heart.

Helping animals has always been important to me and I have one of my own rescue girls, River. After a tough first 6 months of her life and loads of love, exposure and some training (ongoing!) she is the most beautiful soul I could have ever imagined.
So I want to help more of these beautiful souls that have been let down.
I love big dogs, so was drawn to FSDR and love being involved in such a compassionate rescue who don’t just save the puppies or the ‘easy’ rescues.
