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.
These photos are to assist the fundraising we love to do for local causes DAWG Dog Rescue and The Bournemouth Soup Run.
We have a charity stand at the shop dedicated to helping them both, all commission we make from the sales on this stand is shared between the two.
We thought it would be a good idea to post some photos of the lovely items we sell.
We have a great range of high quality bespoke locally handmade oak gifts , Big Love from Bournemouth greetings cards and the amazing Salisbury hospital ‘My Trusty Sunflower’ cream products.
We have samples of the personalised items on display at the shop.
The craftsmanship of the oak gifts is superb, purchasers to date have been exceptionally impressed, me included !
Milo arrived this week.
He is only two years old and gets on very well with other dogs.
A very nice boy.
More to follow once he has time to settle in with us
Coco is six months old and a gorgeous, gorgeous girl.
So friendly with children, dogs, people and cats.
Being so young she will still need training and is quite likely to go through her chewing phase.
Mistle has come back to us due to family circumstances.
She is a Collie cross and seven years old so still very much a youngster.
Mistle is good with children and cats but better as an only dog as she has been used to being the only dog.
