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
Throughout the month of November, DAWG is proud to take part in the Adopt-a-Senior campaign in honor of all senior dogs in search of their forever homes. This week, DAWG is excited to present Fillmore, one of our outstanding senior dogs! Fillmore is a 9 year old, 7lbs Miniature Pinscher. Though he's 9 years old his personality says otherwise, Fillmore truly is young at heart! He loves to go on long walks and enjoys exploring many of Santa Barbara's great hiking trails. Fillmore would make a wonderful companion for anyone who wants a low maintenance, lovable goofball. He is fantastic with kids, dogs, cats and is potty trained! He's a spunky little guy with a big heart, what's not to love? For more information on Fillmore please call Dog Adoption and Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
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.
