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
Sparky is a fun loving energetic 11 month old pit bull/french bull dog mix. His favorite activities include running on a treadmill (he can run a mile in 8 minutes!), he loves along side a bike, loves to go hiking and loves to give kisses. Sparky wants to be doing anything active as he has so much energy. He learned his basic commands very quickly and has mastered the "sit". He likes to play with other dogs, he walks beautifully on a gentle leader. If you love doing active things then Sparky is the friend for you!
For more information on our available dogs, call (805) 681-0561, email: email@example.com or come by during open adoption hours, 12pm-5pm Thursday through Monday.
