Our Special Duty of Care Animals.

These special pets have come into DABS care and for many and varied reasons Dabs can not rehome them, if you read each of their stories you will understand each have a very different reason that has caused us to reach this decision. DABS will never euthanize any animal that with medical care can continue to live a good and happy life. But this costs money and we are asking you to help us care for these special souls by Sponsoring any of the Duty of Care  Dogs or Cats listed below. Just click on the blue sponsor me button. Thank You
