Proud Sponsors of Paws-a-While

At PDGA, we prioritize the welfare of our canine companions. As proud sponsors of the non-profit organization Paws-a-While, we contribute to their admirable mission. With every course sold, a donation is made to this incredible organization. Paws-a-While is dedicated to ensuring that every pet finds a loving home and the opportunity for a happy life.

Their focus on pet adoptions promotes the rescue and adoption of shelter pets in need of a second chance.
