DAWG Throwing ‘Putting on the DAWG’ Paw-ty to Celebrate 25th Anniversary

Dog Adoption and Welfare Group (DAWG) will be hosting its 25th anniversary celebration, "Putting on the DAWG," from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. May 16 at Potek Winery in The Mill, 406 E. Haley St. in Santa Barbara.

DAWG has rescued more than 8,000 dogs in its 25 years, and 100 percent of funds raised will support the nonprofit organization's mission.

DAWG's mission is simple: to provide a no-kill shelter and to ensure that every dog in its care will have a safe and comfortable place to wait, no matter how long, to find the loving home they deserve.

All funds raised will help save lives, rescue dogs, provide veterinary care and a safe place until they find their forever home. Guests will learn more about DAWG's mission while having a wonderful time.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here for $35 pre-sale and $40 at the door. Tickets include hor d'oeuvres provided by Pure Joy Catering, a complimentary beverage from Potek Winery or Third Window Brewing, valet parking by Signature Parking and exclusive access to unique Santa Barbara moments that range in price points and experiences.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
