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
Canyon is looking for an adventure as big as his name! This gorgeous 4 year old Boxer/Shar Pei mix adores any type of exercise. Whether it's running, trailing behind while you bike, or hiking, Canyon is ready for the challenge. Canyon has been with us since February and since his arrival has shown us that he is a polite, kind, and lovable dog who does wonderfully with children and other pets. Can you provide Canyon the companionship he desires? If you'd like to get to know this outstanding dog, please call Dog Adoption and Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
