I am donating to DAWGS in Denison, TX based solely on my sister's recommendation at Thanksgiving while visiting. She cited it as a worthy cause supported by a chain of volunteers for me to donate to in lieu of giving her a material gift. I have never actually personally seen the DAWGS site, but its website seems informative/accurate, and my sister is known to selflessly support both people and animals in need. While all communities are not fortunate enough to have strict laws regarding treatment and abandonment of animals and the luxury of no-kill shelters as we do in my AR community, DAWGS gives innocent Texas animals a chance. I hope you will support/give to them as well, and Merry Christmas.

These people are amazing, committed, generous hearted.....totally committed to helping animals whenever they see the need. I was so touched by the story that one of the organizers of the group shared about seeing a little dog and her tiny puppies that had been dumped out on the roadside. She stopped and took them into her car and her home. Posted a photo of this lovely little family looking safe, fed, content. And her communication with the photo, her words for whomever tossed these creatures along the roadside like cleaning trash out of the car: "Where have we failed you..." how is it we didn't reach you in some way so you knew that animals no longer wanted or that you no longer can care for can be surrendered to an organization rather than simply abandoned somewhere.

DAWG is such a great group, I've volunteered some ,but these sweet souls are the most selfless group of people ever, they give so many hours of their time to care for, and host adoption events. This sacrifice on their part has saved so many animals from euthanasia at the local pound , the attention that they bring to pets needing homes has been intensified so much because they take their weekends to get the dogs out visubil to the public .. thank you to this wonderful group !

DAWG does a great service to our community, finding homes for sweet four legged babes. We adopted our dear, Molly from DAWG. We are forever grateful for the love she has given our family! Thank you for all you do, DAWG volunteers!!!

I must say in all my life of all rescues I've been part of. Denison animal welfare group is the best. They welcomed me with open arms. Being in a wheelchair no one judged what I could do they accepted me as a volunteer, built a ramp for me. Just Great people. Doesn't matter if any of the volunteers have a bad day they always show up everyone at dawg is dedicated to what they believe in. They started out small and now look at them. I have so much respect for them all .. running a rescue is not easy. It is very hard. Everyone there puts the animals before anything. I just am so appreciative that our community has them. The rates of euthinazation has decreased immensely. Stephanie is not a selfish person. She built this with the help of all, she never asks for an applause and always recognizes all who have helped her build the group. So much respect for them all. The fur kids are well taken care of and we'll our community really needed something like dawg.
So thank you to everyone

DAWG is an amazing and selfless organization. The people work tirelessly, and do their very best, to find "fur-ever" homes for each and every animal. The cats, the dogs and the city are blessed to have DAWG on their side.

I rescued my baby in December of last year. He is the most rotten and spoiled dog I have ever seen! Of course, I may have something to do with that! He is by my side always. Love him to pieces. The people of DAWG were so very helpful when I went in to check out the babies and some still recognize Beau when we visit during adoption events.

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.
