About Us

The Denison Animal Welfare Group is a collection of volunteers dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of pets in need, education, and access to low-cost spay/neuter / vaccination programs.

  • The DAWG currently receives NO FUNDING from any local, state or federal sources.
  • We rely on donations from caring, compassionate people and businesses.
  • We also seek and apply for grants.
  • We have no paid staff.
  • Our animals are cared for by volunteers.
  • We cannot accept owner-surrendered animals at our facility.  Animals in our facility must come from the Denison City Pound.

We are located in Denison, Texas and serve the Texoma area.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2014.
