Project Focus:
Animal Welfare & Environment

DAWG, Domestic Animal Welfare Group, is a non-profit organization focused on animal advocacy in the Costa Ballena region of Costa Rica. Our organization was founded in 2007.

Our vision is all domestic animals in Costa Ballena are in a loving and caring home.

Our mission is to eliminate the abuse and abandonment of domestic animals in the Costa Ballena region. To this end, we focus on three major goals:

1) Control the stray animal population through spaying and neutering,
2) Rescue and place in good homes animals that have been abused or abandoned,
3) Educate the residents, especially the children, on the proper care of domestic animals.
