You might not be able to adopt a dog, but there are plenty of other ways you can help!


Your financial donation helps us get a homeless dog out of the pound and into a home.

No amount is too small, and as a volunteer run organisation you’ll know 100% of your donation goes directly to helping dogs in need.

Donate now

We also accept donations of:

• Quality kibble
• Beds, crates & kennels (L & XL)
• Flea & worming treatments
• Bowls, toys, treats, grooming equipment and other general supplies
• Blankets and towels

If you would prefer to purchase something we need rather than making a cash donation, please contact us and we’ll be able to tell you what we need most.


Our Foster carers are crucial to our rescue.  Without a doubt, our most important resource is the volunteers who freely give their time and love to help a dog in need. Find out all about becoming a foster carer.


Our online shop is full of great goodies for you and your dog, including toys, leads, clothing & caps, stickers, windscreen sun shields, cards, mugs, water bottles and plenty more!

Every purchase you make from our shop will be supporting Arctic Rescue Victoria as 100% of proceeds from shop sales go directly to helping dogs in need.

As a volunteer run organisation we are always on the look out for talented people to join our team.

If you aren’t able to foster but still want to help and are able to commit time on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us to find out if we have volunteer vacancies in an area suited to you.

Areas that we often need volunteers include:

• Dog grooming (mobile groomers preferred)
• Fundraising stalls, expos & events
• Dog handlers for social group walks
• Photography
• Transport of dogs and supplies

Please note that as we are not a shelter, we do not require kennel hands or dog walkers and are not able to provide work experience placements for students.


We are proud to partner with a number of local pet industry businesses that are keen to play a part in improving the lives of abandoned companion animals.
