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 boy has a smile so bright he could light up a room! Sonny, our two-year-old mystery mutt is ready to find his new home just in time for the holidays. He is extremely friendly, great with other dogs and people. He's a ball of energy and adores to go on walks where he can explore new surroundings. His energy and happy-go-lucky outlook makes daily life with Sonny exciting, he can't wait to meet his future adopter! Please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at email@example.com to learn more on how you can give Sonny the home he deserves.
All DAWG dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and are given flea & tick protection monthly. They are eligible for consultation with a trainer as needed.
