DAWG provides a safe and loving environment for dogs awaiting permanent adoption, and promotes their adoption through outreach programs in the Santa Barbara community.
Most of the dogs in our care come from Santa Barbara county shelters. Our primary goal is to reduce the rate of euthanasia in the county shelters by providing the medical care and training many dogs need for a second chance at life.
Since DAWG’s inception in 1991, we have worked hard to bring out the best in our dogs, improving their quality of life during their stay at the shelter, and placing healthy, well-behaved dogs back into the community.
Dog of the Week
This tiny dude goes by the name of Broadway. Though he weighs in at a light 6.5 pounds, this boy has a lot of character! Broadway shows his love by giving kisses and snuggling on the laps of many. He is an independent boy who keeps to himself but would do fine in a home with other pets. His ideal day in a home environment would be going on a brisk walk with his human, coming home for some play time, and then relaxing on top of a blanket while the day passes by. For any questions regarding Broadway, please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
