Bark & Paws & DAWG 5K & Fun Run Luau
01/13/2019 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM$25.00
The DAWG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of volunteers established in 2014 and dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of pets in need. Since the DAWG’s involvement with the impounded animals in Denison, the euthanasia rate for the City pound has gone from over 80% to a current SAVE RATE of 97%. We initiated a pre-release spay/neuter program, and we ensure all dogs adopted through our program are microchipped for identification. In our first year we raised enough money to complete the purchase of our beautiful climate-controlled mobile adoption trailer. To keep assisting these animals we desperately need a new shelter facility capable of housing more animals with space for on-site services. Please help us grow our shelter building fund. Help us help those who cannot speak for themselves and have no control over their circumstances. Help us continue to reduce the local pet overpopulation that continues the cycle of unwanted animals.
