Welcome to The DAWG Project
Dallas Animal Welfare Group
The Three Legs of DAWG:
Time saves lives. Foster DAWG provides opportunity for dogs to leave the shelter quickly – opening a spot in for another homeless dog and allowing the foster dog to decompress and heal while they learn to be family members and prepare for their forever homes.
Adopt-a-DAWG is a simple concept with enormous impact. The DAWG Project supports adoption of shelter dogs by working in partnership with Dallas Animal Services to promote shelter adoption; by hosting and managing DAS adoption events; and by encouraging successful adoptions through effective adoption counseling at these events
Lucky DAWG is a catch-all program to change the luck of Dallas dogs. DAWG does this by arranging transport of Dallas shelter dogs to cities where they will be adopted, by removing barriers to basic pet care within the underserved areas of our community, and by providing information and medical resources to support fosters, adopters and pet-owners.
