The people who run this place are awful and disrespectful. I cannot tell whether they are doing it simply to be mean or because they actually believe what they are saying to people. Either way, it is sad and it needs to stop. I guarantee that every other shelter you could possibly go to would be more pleasant and a better use of your time.

DAWG has many devoted volunteers, who do rescue and take care of a certain number of abandoned and abused dogs. Those who "run the show," however, impose unreasonably stringent adoption requirements. These requirements are arbitrary and at times discriminatory, from a fenced yard, to non-smoking, to English proficiency. Many good people are denied dogs, and some of them have voiced their concerns on the Internet. Also, they associate almost exclusively with a vet who has been dishonest with some of his (now former) clients and demonstrated disregard for homeless animals. Instead of being objective about this vet, the DAWG senior volunteers have turned vicious towards those who are. Not a good group.
