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
Stella is a 2 year old Papillon/ Pekingese mix who's sweet, loyal and above all, just adorable. This great gal is potty trained, good on leash and good with every living being on this planet. She is insecure about herself in new surroundings and is looking for someone to help build her confidence. She has great doggy manners and is elegant in each step she takes. She would be a great companion for a dog, kitty, or human.
For more information on our available dogs, call (805) 681-0561, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or come by during open adoption hours, 12pm-5pm Thursday through Monday.
