  • 1. Awesome!

    by: rescueadog

    This shelter is great. They recently took a long term resident from our shelter and found him a great home in months. Not only did he find his forever home but he had a blast while he was @ DAWG. Sponty and Animal House thank you!

    Pros

    great staff and volunteers

    Cons

    far from Colorado

  • 2. GREAD DEDICATION

    by: lambrhondal

    THE NO KILL SPEAKS LOUDLY AND CLEARLY ABOUT THE DEDICATION OF THE WORKERS. IT IS GREAT TO HEAR OTHER REVIEWERS SPEAK SO POSITIVELY ABOUT THIS SERVICE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

    Pros

    SAVING ANIMALS

    Cons

    NA

  • 3. DAWG is a dog's best friend

    by: EnchantedGypsy

    DAWG (dog adoption & welfare group) is a wonderful non-profit shelter located in Santa Barbara County. DAWG rescues and rehabilitates dogs slated to be euthanized but are still adoptable. Volunteers work with the dogs at DAWG to rehabilitate and socialize the dogs to aide in finding them a forever home. I volunteered at DAWG in 2005, and found it very rewarding to see 4 of the dogs I worked with find new homes while I was there.

    Pros

    no-kill shelter

    Cons

    adoptions to local residents only

    by: tidepoolpics

    DAWG is a great place with lots of dogs who need loving homes. The volunteers will help you find the right dog! Volunteers are there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to help with adoptions.

    Pros

    Great volunteers who are always ready to help.

    Cons

    Open on the weekends for adoptions.
