Owner Surrender

If you are interested in beginning the process of relinquishing your dog to our rescue, please complete the form below and send pictures of your dog to adopt@sbdawg.org, please include your name and the dog’s name in the subject line. A member of our intake committee will contact you once the information has been reviewed. If we have kennel space and feel that we can help your dog, we will schedule an evaluation appointment. Please understand that as a no-kill rescue, we have many people interested in relinquishing to us and there is a waiting list, if you need to relinquish urgently we likely won’t be able to help you. Relinquishment to DAWG includes a minimum $50 donation. Please note that we can only take in dogs from Santa Barbara county residents, if you’re not a resident of Santa Barbara county we unfortunately cannot help you. Please look into rescues in your area.

Please also search for other rescues and breed specific rescues in our area.
