DAWG’s focus is on at-risk dogs in shelters right here in our community. We save injured, ill, neglected, starved and simply unwanted dogs, with an emphasis on those requiring medical care, or dogs who are overlooked because they are shy or older. We restore their health and nurture them until they are ready for adoption, and then find them their “forever homes” through personalized home visits and then placements. No dog is ever returned to the shelter because the dog took too much of our funds, time or effort. If an adoption fails, we gladly take our dogs back. We are committed to our dogs for the rest of their lives.
We can’t save shelter dogs without YOUR financial help. Adoption fees cover only a nominal portion of each dog’s expenses! Approximately 98% of our donations is spent on the dogs in our care; the remainder is spent on necessary administrative expenses including a yearly audit. Donations are not used for payroll, rent, gas, supplies or fundraising. DAWG efficiently uses every donated dollar by contracting for as-needed services, which are often discounted or even donated at times. PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY!
