Since 1974, DAWS has successfully rescued over 31,000 displaced animals from high-kill shelters and has helped countless more in our community. As we approach the final days of our shelter renovation project, our commitment to remaining a leading animal welfare provider has never wavered. 


We have provided care for more than 2,000 animals in the past year. Our work included rescuing and rehoming 800 cats and dogs, providing 663 low-cost clinic services, increasing community outreach efforts, and continuing our TNR program to reduce animal overpopulation. Additionally, we completed 72 transports with our rescue partners, saving animals from being euthanized.


Join us as we celebrate 50 years of making a difference! We can't wait to celebrate with you!!
