DAWGS is the only animal sanctuary in America founded and run by elementary school children. Since its founding in 2003, DAWGS has touched the lives of more than twenty thousand animals, giving them a second chance in life. DAWGS is the first recipient of the Distinguished Youth Guardian Award from In Defense of Animals, an international animal rights and rescue group based in California. The authors hope their readers will be inspired to make a difference in saving the lives of animals by adopting, fostering, donating, and volunteering. Visit DAWGS at www.dawgsntexas.com.
