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
This gorgeous boy goes by the name of Balto. He's a three year old Husky in search of his forever home. Balto is extremely intelligent and equally as handsome. He's adventurous, confident and like every Husky, just a little bit stubborn! He is looking for a family or individual who will give him consistent exercise and mental stimulation. If you enjoy going on long hikes, runs, or bike rides Balto just might be your perfect companion. Please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at email@example.com to learn more on how you can give Balto the home he deserves.
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.
