Our mission tonight. SAVE ROCKY! Rocky is a beautiful gentle wolf hybrid puppy raised as a family pet. Because Michigan does not allow them, and he ended up at a local shelter, we are driving 22 hours to get him to A sanctuary in North Carolina! Here we go. ...
Taxi had 7 pups this morning and all are doing well!
Gatlin is in need of a foster home! He was shot in the head and needs a home to recover in. He is good with dogs and cats. He would do best with someone home often. Please fill out a foster application at

I found a black squirrel having trouble moving in my backyard. I called several places, all of which told me to leave it to die, or they will come pick it up with a $200 fee attached to the pick up. A...t 9 p.m. i discouragedly messaged D.A.W.G. and got a message in 20 minutes offering to pick up the animal and gave instructions to care for it in the mean time. It is 10 p.m. and someone is currently on their way to help this poor critter! Finally, a decent place that cares for ALL animals. See More

I found a small litter of baby squirrels in my truck, and I had called EVERY DNR certified wildlife rehab center in the area. Nobody would take them, and I had to keep them overnight and nurse them to health. A friend gave me the number for this place, I called at 9am and left a voicemail not expecting anything back. 15 minutes later the owner called me and said they'd absolutely take them in, so I drove an hour away to the location. Was met by Janet who took them in and gave me an ENTIRE tour of the property. Was absolutely blown away by the place. No kill, they will take any animal.

Gorgeous property. Will be calling to volunteer soon. Cannot fully express how wonderful this placr really is.

I have volunteered with DAWG for over 2 years now. They not only rescue dogs, cats, small animals, etc. They also rescue farm animals and wildlife. It amazes me how every time I see a post about an... animal in need, no matter what it is... one or more of the volunteers are racing out to save it! They obviously can't save them all... but they sure try. Kelley and so many of the volunteers bust their butts everyday keeping that place running. Whether its working at the farm, feeding, cleaning, fostering, running adoption events, fundraisers, home visits, building shelters, .... the list goes on and on. I honestly don't know how they do it!! They have some amazing people in their group. Thank you all for what you do!! ♥ See More

We had a fawn on our yard for a few days and we were worried that it's mama wasn't coming back. 2 people came out right after I called with my questions and concerns to evaluate it and they ended up t...aking it in. They were kind, friendly and prompt and professional and I knew the fawn would be in good hands. Thanks so much for all your help ! See More

I have visited DAWG and seen what wonderful work they are doing. The amount of time, effort, and genuine love and care that goes into everything that happens here is beautiful. DAWG does so many thing...s, and does them all so well. The farm animals are so well taken care of and loved, and they are so innovative with their ideas (like the apartment for the dogs to get used to home-life and a break from the kennels!) It seems everyone at DAWG is working tirelessly to find new ways to meet the needs of the animals that come into their care, to rescue the animals that need it. They don't just value 'rescuing' the animals, but truly value their happiness! See More

"You can tell a lot about a persons character by how they treat people they don't have to treat well."

To be clear, the dog I adopted is amazing. Her and I are great, she's spoiled, very happy and lo...ves life.

The main problem stems from the people at DAWG. Being a single man in his 20's, I apparently was not the "ideal" candidate to adopt a dog. After filling out an application I was met with rejection, stating others were interested in her. My dog's foster family debunked this, so I had to send a plea again to show that I'd be great dad dog and was able to get a home visit.

The day of the home visit, I was rescheduled on multiple times later that day. It was a Sunday and I was going to be flexible, and it gave me an opportunity to make sure my home was pristine. About three hours before the lady doing my home visit was scheduled to come, I get a call from the foster family telling me she's about 15 minutes away.

My house is in the middle of cleaning, and nowhere near presentable, I panicked and did the best I could. But it apparently wasn't enough.

The lady shows up and I welcome her. She already has a disgusted look on her face, so that set the tone of the next 30 minutes. I apologized and mentioned how I was in the middle of cleaning and moved in literally a month prior, so I still hadn't unpacked everything.

The lady, who in my opinion was not dressed appropriately for the occasion, was on a power trip, and an insanely short fuse. She was not polite about anything, complained about the state of my home (even after explaining MULTIPLE times that she showed up early, I was in the middle of getting ready, and had just moved in), and was completely rude.

I bit my tongue only because at any point she could have said no and that was that. And she knew this. She knew she could spit in my face and I'd take it. She didn't do that, but she was obviously very much aware of this.

So after being denied that day I was told to fix my issues and she'd return. After about a week I was able to fix this list she demanded and I got my dog. But only because this lady declined to do the home visit and sent someone else.

My dog has a good home and is happy. She could have ended up somewhere else to be ignored, beaten, hungry, dead, whatever, simply because I wasn't what they thought a good owner is. I am a good owner and fear what has happened to other dogs because of their misguided judge of character.

But because of this situation, I will never adopt a dog again. I absolutely will go to a breeder for another dog, but I refuse to let someone walk all over me because of their own personal issues.

I do not recommend going to DAWG, but absolutely adopt if that's what you want to do. Just a warning that if you choose to go through DAWG then you more than likely will be made to feel like a pile of crap from start to finish, in my opinion.

Glad they were able to take in a injured mourning dove bird it was hard to find somewhere that was not full and would put it down most likely.

The care and love.. they put into, making sure all the dogs are safe, and making sure.. they go into, a loving home, in... a safe environment .. they are always trying to raise money for their animals. Just amazing rescue. This is a true passion for them. It has to be, to see how hard they all work, non stop work.. it truly is never ending. .
