We adopted our sweet lab Princess from DAWG. She made herself right at home. It touched my heart how much the volunteers care about the animals they are taking care of! Definitely one of my favorite nonprofits.

I live in Plano, TX. I drove an hour to adopt 2 of my babies. This group has nothing but intentions to save animals and find them good homes. When I am ready for another baby, I will for sure adopt from them. Healthy and happy pups makes us happy.

We adopted both of our fur babies from here. We adopted Thor(all black) first and he is full of personality and we could not have asked for a better kitty. Then at the end of May we moved and since Thor was so use to having other animals around we decided to adopt another kitty. So we adopted Athena (all white). They get along great and are both so full of love and personality. Honestly, the best decision we made. Thank you DAWG for rescuing our babies and helping them. You do so much good for the kitties and the doggies.

DAWG is such a great organization. I found my sweet Sadie (AKA Cookie) there and she's perfect! The volunteers work so hard to make sure all these furbabies get their furever homes. They're all healthy, fixed, and chipped before they go home. NONE of these animals are put down.

We got our dog Bud (Matthew at the time) back in March. He is a great pup!! Our cat's may not agree since his way of asking to play is to bark, but my family loves him very much. DAWG was wonderful to him and made the adoption an enjoyable process.

DAWGS volunteers help as the staging area for transports from several area shelters . They help go over our paperwork, get the dogs settled in to wait to load on transport, water and clean crates when needed. It’s a huge undertaking that is of major benefit to many area shelters and rescues.

I fostered Winston from DAWG (aka Cookie) for 3 mos. because he was petrified of people. He loves dogs and instantly bonded with one of my mom’s dogs. She took him in and adopted him. He is the sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. Thank you DAWG for saving this “scaredy-cat” and giving him a chance.

I have volunteered numerous times at the DAWG house and have family in the area. Anytime I can share my time, I choose to do so with them. They put the happiness and welfare of their animals above all else. Their compassion is amazing and I can honestly say that my next dog will come from DAWG.

I have had the pleasure of having two DAWG dogs chose me for their forever person. The first one is Cher and she picked me in July 2016. I was so impressed by the care and compassion shown for animals that I became a volunteer for DAWG in July of 2017. Seeing it organization more “behind the scene” let me see that the love and compassion you see from a client view is only a mere drop in the bucket.

Buddy Lee picked me in September 2017 and they are both the best.

We adopted a dog max and he is my first dog ever and angela adkins from DAWG and a few others have been tje caring people ive ever met.
They answered all my silly but real questions about hiw to keep/raise a dog and if im ever in need of anytjing they r alway there to point me in the right direction
So i try my best to keep them posted on max cause they deserve to know that he is spoiled rotten and in a loving home and i wouldnt trade him for the world.
I cant thank them enough for encouraging me to adopt cause ive def found a best friend for life.
Thanks everybody for going above and beyond we greatly appreciate it
Sincerely. Christina and justin

We adopted through DAWG twice last year. We had an amazing experience both times. The volunteers are so kind with the animals and the new fur parents. We actually live about an hour away so it was a bit of a drive but totally worth it. These guys are doing awesome work!!

We adopted our sweet Cane (Rambler) on June 9th. He immediately stole our hearts the moment we laid eyes on him in the DAWG trailer. Bruce was so amazing and so patient with me and my kids while we worked to win over Daddy! He even helped calm down our son who was upset that we couldn't take our baby home until he got fixed. Everyone with DAWG is so compassionate and caring with people, but more importantly the animals! They truly love each and every one of them. My husband was in awe by the fact that they immediately recognize dogs that have come back to them from when they were puppies. I recommend anyone looking for a furry family member to check out DAWG! ❤️

We recently adopted Myrtle. The process was so easy. They were have a pet adoption drive outside of Petsmart in Sherman, TX. We just happened to be in town from Ardmore, Ok. We went up to their trailer. They told us about the animals, had bios up for each one, and answered any questions. They let us hold Myrtle and told us a little about her. When we decided to adopt, they took us inside petsmart to fill out the paperwork. Along with Myrtles adoption came coupons for Petsmart, het puppy shots, spaying, and a chip. They kept her for a to have her spayed and we were able to pick her up today. The whole process was from start to finish. Myrtle is in great health and we would definitly make the drive again to rescue another beautiful fur baby from them.

This is a great group of volunteers that does amazing things. They put their heart and soul into what they do for the animals and the dedication they show is beyond amazing. Without them I wouldn’t have my Abbey and Mr. Oliver. I can’t imagine a life without them. Thank you Stephanie, Karen, Donna, and all the other selfless volunteers for all you do.

We adopted our terrier mix, Yoyo, from DAWG. Yoyo actually cried leaving DAWG because she loved her caretakers so much. They told me they spent lots of time playing and socializing with her; and even tested her response to cats, since I have them, too. Yoyo has ended up being a happy, loving member of our family, loved by people and all of our kitties! She is a perfect fit for us.
