DAWGS charity shop

44 Main Street, Alford, United Kingdom
Charity Organization



The charity shop is  in Alford, Aberdeenshire and  raises funds for D.A.W.G.S -Dog Action Working Group Scotland(scio). SCO22666 DAWGS (scio) is charity based in the North East of Scotland that finds loving new homes for dogs whose owners, perhaps due to illness, frailty or a change in family circumstances, can no longer take care of them.  We match families and dogs to ensure the best possible chance that our doggy “tails” have a happy ending. Over the last 21 years we have successfully re-homed over 3000 dogs. It costs over £300 to re- home every dog – more if kenneling, veterinary care or other services are needed - but the results make it so worthwhile. Yet we receive no statutory funding and rely on our own fundraising efforts, our charity shop and support from the local community and local businesses to keep our service going. To find out more about us and what we do visit our website –


This week's shop windows theme is weddings. Please come along and check our wedding outfits/ hats and accessories.

The lovely guys at Piggery-Smokery, based here in Alford are regulars at the shop. If you haven’t tried their bacon yet we suggest you treat yourself to some ASAP, it’s truly the best bacon you will ever taste! Please support local business by watching this programme, especially their slot on May 1st !

We had a visit from this handsome boy today. Dawgs dog Harvey popped in to say hello and let us know how happy he is in his new home 🐾💕

Spring is in the air (at least it was yesterday so we are hopeful) 💐🌼🌸

Just a quick reminder that we are closed tomorrow. Normal service will resume on Thursday 12th, we look forward to seeing some of you then 🐾

Well the bad news is it’s snowing again ⛄️, the good news is all our winter coats are half price 😁

So sad but I am sure it’s true for all of us who have lost a furry family member 🐾💕
