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 sassy gal goes by the name of Piper. She's a two year old Chihuahua who adores getting her belly rubbed and her fuzzy ears played with. She bonds quickly to any person she meets but is more reserved around other dogs. Piper is looking for a leader who can give her structure and unconditional love.
If this golden girl sounds like the right companion for you please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561, email:email@example.com or come by during open adoption hours, 12pm-5pm Thursday through Monday.
