Save-A-Dog Scheme is a community-based not-for-profit animal welfare organisation that saves hundreds of dogs and cats from being killed every year. They have a no-kill philosophy and provide veterinary care to sick or injured animals so they can live out their natural lifespan.
caring for animals
Save-A-Dog Scheme is based at a state-of-the-art facility in Glen Iris that functions as a regional pound and no-kill shelter. Opened in October 2006 and expanded in 2012, the building is owned by Stonnington Council and operated by Save-A-Dog Scheme.
In 2009, Save-A-Dog Scheme purchased a 33-acre property at Yarrambat on the northern outskirts of Melbourne. The property was run as a boarding facility by the previous owners with a permit for 210 dogs and 50 cats. While currently able to board animals at Yarrambat, Save-A-Dog Scheme is currently modifying the property to comply with their code of practice prior to operational commencement as a shelter.

how we are helping
Save-A-Dog Scheme has again been selected to be one of the recipients of our community financial support program for the 2021 / 2022 financial year. As part of the program, we have committed to providing Save-A-Dog Scheme with a $1,000 donation each month commencing 1 July 2021.
Donations made will be put towards costs associated with the on-going medical treatment and veterinarian bills incurred from nursing sick and injured animals back to health.
Details of animals we have supported through Save-A-Dog Scheme can be found in the Community gallery.
