Thank you for your tremendous response to our well issue…you truly saved us, for without water we could not have survived! This holiday season we are so grateful and thankful for all your help and support…THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!   To read more, download our newsletter...

Spring 2013

Ten years ago the Dalhart Animal Wellness Group and Sanctuary (DAWGSnTEXAS) was born. The shelter was officially started, April 1, 2003 and we have faced so many man-made and nature-made obstacles in our endeavors to save the lives of the animals in our care.  To read more, download our newsletter...

Winter 2012

There have been so many wonderful dogs and cats that have come through the sanctuary this year.   Each one is special; each one only wants to love and be loved; and each comes with his or her own tale to tell.   So we chose—hard to decide which—a few stories to share with you in this letter.  To read more, download our newsletter...

Fall 2012

Because of your generosity, we have rescued over 7,000 animals and have placed 6,128 into great forever homes. It seems that we are always facing insurmountable obstacles and somehow, we manage to struggle through so we can continue to make a difference. That "somehow" is because of your kindness and generosity. Thank you so very much! So far this year, we've had a brutal winter and an early, very hot and dry spring. Now we are "enjoying" hot days of 95+ degrees, followed by huge thunderstorms that wash out our roads. Our helpers and volunteers wear shorts with high rubber boots, which makes for quite an attractive suntan. It's really hard work in the most extreme weather, but with your help, we've managed to keep going. We are so looking forward to Fall.  To read more, download our newsletter...

Winter 2011

This year has been really a difficult one for everyone here at DAWGS. The winter was brutally cold and the summer was blistering hot and not much in between. The students, who founded DAWGS in 2003, have now graduated high school and are out in the world, making it a better place, with compassion and love for animals. In their place, we have a dedicated group of students from Cal Farley's Boys Ranch and Colorado College who have been volunteering at the shelter throughout the year. We have had some heartfelt success stories of animals needing help.   To read more, download our newsletter...

Summer 2011

Several months ago we wrote about the freezing cold of 30 below and were so wishing for warm weather. Well, we should be more careful what we wish for!!! It is sooooo hot in Texas; highs of 113 degrees and it is only July.  To read more, download our newsletter...

Spring 2011

We, in the panhandle of Texas, cannot wait for spring! It was such a brutal winter for so many people across the nation and we certainly had our share here. We had snowstorms, ice storms, and freezing fog, but our particular favorites were the snowstorms followed by wind chills of 30 BELOW ZERO...it was soooo cold! Thankfully due to your tremendous help and support, our animals were safely nestled in their warm, hay-filled houses waiting for the weather to pass.  To read more, download our newsletter.....

Winter 2010

All of us here at DAWGS would like to wish you the merriest of holidays and the happiest of New Years. This year has been very difficult with the number of animals needing homes and the worsening economy, but, through it all, with your kindness and generosity, we have continued to save animals and find them new homes. Over the last seven years we have rescued 5,398 animals and found homes for 4,689. Your support has literally saved thousands of lives. THANK YOU!  To read more, download our newsletter.....

Fall 2010

We are so glad summer is finally over and the cooler days of fall are finally here. The summer was filled with really hot days and lots of summer storms that came through the area during the night leaving a wake of water everywhere. The most common attire at the shelter, as in years past, is shorts and tall boots--quite a look! Everyone is doing great and we are now getting ready for a big change in weather: winter!  To read more, download our newsletter.....

June 2010

In March, we celebrated our seven-year anniversary and what an adventure it has been! Thank you for being part of our journey and helping us save so many precious lives. Because of your support, we have been able to continue our efforts to provide second chances to thousands of homeless dogs and cats, seven ferrets, a baby deer, a baby goat, two raccoons, two dwarf rabbits, three doves and an iguana. To celebrate their lives and this seven year journey, we wanted to share our timeline of events, only made possible because of you--your kindness and your generosity.  To read more, download our newsletter.....
