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
Meet Princess, she was recently welcomed into a DAWG foster home where she enjoys the company of other four-legged companions. She was relinquished to us by no fault of her own and is awaiting another family to sweep her off her feet. We believe that she is an itty bitty Chihuahua mix with a personality so big we wonder how it fits in that tiny body. Princess is about 8 years old but her age doesn't stop her. She loves playing with the canine friends and she loves it when people come in to visit her. She will bring joy, happiness and lots of laughter to the lucky individual who gets to call her family. For more on Princess, Please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
