About northside dawgs
Our mission is to create a safer neighborhood in the Near Northside and Northline neighborhoods of Houston
by fostering compassion and proper animal care through education.
We in the Northside and Northline cannot adopt our way out of the stray dog problem.
ONLY THROUGH EDUCATION CAN LASTING CHANGE HAPPEN
We teach students and children about proper animal care.
We educate adults about compassionate care, spaying & neutering
and availability of free and low cost spay/neuter services.
We would love to come to speak to or work with your group.
Please contact us.
How Northside Dawgs began
On June 6, 2015 the first annual “The State of the Northside” event sponsored by Go Neighborhoods, and Avenue CDC was held. As part of the event attendees and residents were asked to vote on which of the problems experienced in the Near Northside needed the most attention. The stray animal population in the area received significantly more votes than any of the other problems.
Following the “State of the Northside” event, Northside Dawgs was founded with the assistance of Go Neighborhoods, and the Go Safety Committee convened by Avenue CDC.
Northside Dawgs Inc. was incorporated as a non-profit business in Texas as of January 1, 2016. It has 501(c)3 status as a federally recognized non-profit organization.
Since the beginning of 2016, Northside Dawgs has participated in community events, creating awareness of the problem of stray dogs and the solution of spaying and neutering, and teaching about compassionate and proper animal care.
Among the events Northside Dawgs particpates in are Sabor del Northside, the Lindale Park 4th of July Parade, YMCA's backpack initative, Mercado del Northside, and numerous other events held in the Northside and Northline neighborhoods.
Northside Dawgs has worked with students at YES Prep Northside and Wesley Community Center, students at Northside High School, Parent-Teacher Organizations at Northside High and Marshall Middle School and seeks further opportunities in the public and charter schools.
