COURT ADVOCACY & VIOLENCE PREVENTION
If you can go to court on a weekday, even once a year, read on to learn about D.A.W.G. Court Advocacy. If you cannot go to court, we still need you: we have many volunteer opportunities. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot volunteer, you can still help. Become more aware of dog fighting, animal abuse, and, yes, even pet theft.
