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 beauty goes by the name of Fiona. Even at only one year old, this girl is an old soul. She loves relaxing in the home and cuddling up to her human. Her favorite time is nap time, but if she’s out and about she’ll get her tail wagging and soon enough she’s ready to play! Fiona’s ideal environment is a home where she is the only dog. Don’t get miss Fiona wrong- she adores ALL dogs she meets, but in the home she needs to know that all that puppy love is hers and hers only. In addition, she’d also love for her human to have a little bit of extra patience when it comes to crate training since she does get a little nervous when she’s home alone. If you're ready to be charmed by this princess, please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
