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
Adventure is this girl's middle name! Bella radiates joy anywhere she goes and makes friends instantly. This girl always has a new adventure in mind so she would do best with a family who adores to spend their time outdoors. Whether it's hiking, running, or long walks on the beach, Bella is ready for it all. She is great with children, adults, and dogs both big and small. She would be an ideal companion for any active home looking for a happy-go-lucky gal. Want to meet this vivacious gal?
