Review for Denison Animal Welfare Group, Denison, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DAWG continues to make a significant impact on the lives of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in Denison, Texas. 100% volunteer staffed with zero paid employees, more than 1,200 animals were rescued and adopted in the past year after being spayed/neutered, and vaccinated. DAWG is a very productive group with major goals including a new shelter within 5 years.

Review for Denison Animal Welfare Group, Denison, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In just over two years, DAWG has reduced the euthanasia rate in the Denison pound from more than 90% to less than 5%. Today, the only cats and dogs that are not taken in by the group and offered for adoption are those who are completely feral, very aggressive, or suffering greatly. Each animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and socialized. Since March 2014, more than 1500 dogs and cats have been rescued. Very passionate Volunteers have donated more than 20,000 hours assisting with adoption events, providing daily care for animals, transporting animals for medical care, getting food and supplies, and maintaining tracking databases for all animals. DAWG operates 100% on donations and volunteer time-there are no paid staff members. This is a highly productive group that is accomplishing amazing things for Denison, TX animals.
