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.

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.
Casper went for his first walk today and bounced around on the lead like Bambi.
Almost certain that he has good vision in one eye as he can see a tennis ball in dusk light and another dog from 20ft away.
He is now asleep and thoroughly tired out.
He is a clever dog and picks up straight away when to stand still to untangle his lead.
He has started to play with the other dogs
Casper arrived yesterday.
He is only around 5 months old and bless him has not had the best start in life.
He still has most of his baby teeth.
Someone has sliced part of one ear off and on top of this he can only see shadows in one eye and is probably partially sighted in the other.
He is starting to settle in here at the Rescue and has the sweetest of natures.
Today, he was watching the mop going from side to side and trying to catch it.
Roxie has been handed into the Rescue to be found a home.
She is around 9 years but bounces like a three year old.
I don’t know what she is like with children as she has never lived with them.
She is good with other dogs and the usual strong, full of energy bulldozer type Labrador.
She is seeing the vet next week for a check over and to be spayed but seems in good and robust health.
She is strong on the lead but I think will calm down once she has had some exercise.
The people who had her kept her in a kennel outside from a little puppy age.
How very sad and why bother to have a pet dog if that is what they do to them.
She smelt to say the least when she arrived but 6 washes later is sweeter smelling.
Otherwise typical Labrador in the fact she is mad for food and knocks everything out of the way to get it.
They are not the most delicate and polite of dogs!
Geoff who she is fostering with has phoned to say she has settled in very well and is a very sweet girl.
Alison at Everything Pets pet shop in a Hordle has chosen DAWG as their charity to fundraise for this year!
