DAWGS is non-profit organization founded by children. See below for a few ways you can get involved and make a difference.
Our primary goal is to find loving, forever homes for homeless animals. Links to adoptable animals coming soon.
Sometimes people can not take on the responsibilities for an animal for a lifetime but they would like to help. Fostering is a great contribution. An animal will stay with you a short period of time until it is either able to go on transport or to be adopted.
We need volunteers for the following activities:
- Walking/socializing dogs
- Socializing cats
- Help with fundraising opportunities and events
- Foster care of animals needing special homes as they recover from surgery
If you would like to help, but none of these projects fit your skills or availability, please let DAWGS know! You can contact them at Dawgsntexas@yahoo.com.
Your donation will help us continue to care for these rescued animals, providing food, shelter, spay, neuter and other veterinary care. No matter what the weather or time of year, our animals depend on your generous donations for their daily care and shelter maintenance.
What your contribution will provide:
- $40 – Feed a dog for a week
- $30 – Vaccinate a puppy
- $90 – Neuter a male dog
- $100 – Spay a female dog
- $125 – Buy a “dogloo”
- $275 – Buy a dog kennel
- $450 – Buy 10 shade tarps
- $800 – Provide bedding hay for 1 month
All donations to DAWGS, a 501(c)(3)charitable organization, are tax deductible.
