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
Fred- 2 year old Spaniel/Collie Mix who's an enthusiastic dog with a sparkle in his eye. He's made drastic improvements in his behaviours and socialibility since leaving the shelter. Attentive and driven, Fred loves to be engaging with his person or doggy pals. If you're looking for an active dog, Fred loves to go on adventures! He's learning his house manners quick and is almost 100% potty trained. Fred is adventurous so he does need a secure yard, chain link is easy for him to climb and he can jump higher than 5 feet or an apartment lifestyle would be great for him. He would enjoy an adult household that can toss him the ball or his favorite toy, take him out to smell the dirt and flowers, and give him some yummy treats on a comfy bed as his regular routine.
