A place for DAWS

As a special friend of DAWS, you know that we do things differently than the typical animal shelter.

March 2021 Newsletter

March is Pet Poison Prevention Month! Pets may become very ill after ingesting many common household products, food, and plants — a thorough inspection of your home, outside areas included, may help reduce the risk.

February 2021 Newsletter

It’s hard to believe it’s already February! We had a great start to 2021 with 94 dogs and cats finding their furever families in January, one of which was our longest term kitty resident, Bailey, who was at the shelter for over three years!

January 2021 Newsletter – A LOOK BACK AT 2020…

There’s no doubt that 2020 was a difficult year for all of us. When the pandemic hit in March, we had to temporarily suspend transporting, intakes, and reevaluate how we’d move forward. However, during these unprecedented times, we got through!
