All-volunteer Best Dawg Rescue (DAWG) was founded in 2003 to ensure that DC area, shelter dogs who risk euthanasia due to medical needs, shyness, or age are given the opportunity for a new, committed life. Each dog is given routine and/or specialized medical treatment and nurtured until an appropriate adopter is found through weekly adoption shows. No dog is placed without individualized home visits and careful education. And all dogs are welcomed back, should an adoption fail. Individuals seeking adoption are provided educational materials regarding care and training of dogs. DAWG also promotes the prevention of cruelty by immediately reporting abuse or neglect to the proper authorities.
