All shelters are overloaded, and most euthanize dogs after a limited number of days, or immediately if full. Don’t blame shelters! There are too many unwanted dogs — young and old, healthy and sick, small and large, purebred and mixed breed. The waste and betrayal of innocent, dependent lives is a disgrace, and impels those of us who care to act.
What can YOU do?
When you support DAWG financially, you help us take dogs from shelters, care for them as they recover from illnesses and injuries, and give them time until the right adopter is found for each one.
Adoption fees are nominal and hardly make a “dent” in the overall cost of caring for DAWG dogs until adopted. Only 2% of donated funds are spent on general/administrative expenses, and 0% is spent on fundraising. So 98% of donations literally “go to the DAWGS.”
YOU give us the ability to say “Yes!” when the shelter calls in desperation. Compassion is not enough; financial support gives life. We can’t do it without you!
In a workplace payroll deduction campaign, a donation of $10/pay period per annum can give life-saving heartworm treatment to a dog, or a donation of $50/pay period per annum can give orthopedic ACL or FHO surgeries so that a dog can live a normal life without pain. ANY amount will help to provide routine, specialized or emergency care for our dogs.

SPONSOR A SPECIAL NEEDS DOG
COOKIE was found tied and unconscious in a burning, abandoned home. We were horrified when Cookie’s skin peeled off a few days after we took her in. Thanks to our veterinarian’s and South Paws’ HBOT treatments, Cookie’s skin healed, and then she was adopted!
