Who We Are

IDAWG, or the Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group, is a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Nampa, Idaho. IDAWG has been in existence since June 2000 and is staffed entirely with volunteers. IDAWG supports southern Idaho animal shelters as needed, and also helps private citizens rehome their dogs. Sometimes this involves transporting or organizing transports for dogs or cats, or sometimes birds, to rescues or permanent homes in adjoining cities and states. IDAWG also offers financial assistance to senior citizens and others needing help paying for spay/neuter services for their companion animals.
