IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:
This Rescue 'DAWGDOGS / DAWG / DORSET ANIMAL WORKERS GROUP' has no connection or association with a different rescue called 'DORSET DOG RESCUE / DDR' about which there has recently been considerable adverse publicity.
Please ring Helen on 01202 380467 if you have any questions or concerns relating to the operation and practices of our Rescue (DAWGdogs)
DAWGdogs Rescue is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteers.
Every penny raised goes towards the high costs improving the lives of as many dogs as we are able to save.
Our veterinary bills alone run into many thousands of pounds each year, and the costs of feeding, microchipping, sheltering and transporting those in our care are ever rising.
Please make the DAWGdogs a donation if you can.
You can securely make an online donation using the Paypal button below.

Rescuers, rescue supporters, and volunteers do not walk on water.
We don't wear capes and tights or leap tall buildings.
We aren't better than anyone else, but we do pursue a cause that we believe makes us better than we were before we started.
We make mistakes; we feel we can't do enough; we go broke; we have too many dogs at home; we rant out of frustration; we lose our tempers and get snappy; we have to reject people sometimes for the good of a dog.
We are not always likeable.
What we do is draining, emotionally, financially, and physically.
Please bear with us and forgive us our flaws, because we are doing work that's bigger than we are.

This is Cookie that came to us last week and went a few days later to a new home.
Just wanted to update you about Cookie.
What a lovely dog she is.
Sleeping every night in her bed next to ours and really coming out of herself.
She has her confidence back- and ate a large roast dinner lamb dinner :- )
She seems a very Happy girl.

Message from Jane Ferguson :
Laura Ferguson, Samantha Fry, Ollie SFC Wareham and myself are running the New Forest Half Marathon
on Sunday, 13th September, 2015 in aid of DAWGdogs , which is very close to my heart.
Any sponsors, no matter how small, would be very much appreciated.
