Welcome to Danbury Animal Welfare Society

For 40 years, Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) has been dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond.  Our life-saving work began in 1974 with two community volunteers. Since then, DAWS has been promoting responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals, while working toward ending animal overpopulation through education and a variety of programs.

You can be a part of the DAWS family and help us live our mission for many more years to come:

  • Adopt – meet our dogs and cats for adoption.
  • Donate – your generous donations helps us help animals in need.
  • Volunteer – learn how you can help animals in need by becoming a volunteer.

Run Your Tail Off 5K Race

Matrix Corporte Center

Danbury

  

Learn More Here

Spring is almost here, and that means running outdoors with your favorite companion. Dogs are always eager, wagging their tails and jumping for joy the minute they see their owners putting on sneakers for a jog together. While you and your pooch are on the move, you can help make a difference by participating in our fundraiser.

This is a unique 5K race as the participants will be running with their dogs! Or if you prefer you can run without your canine companion, or you can just walk.

Our goal is to raise crucial funding to save lives and operate our shelter. Last year, DAWS’ made the difference for more than 1,000 animals in need of urgent care, including the adoptions of 720 homeless cats and dogs. With your help we’ll make the life-saving difference for even more this year.
