The Okotoks Dawgs have had amazing support from the Town of Okotoks and the surrounding areas in the Foothills. In recognition of that, the Dawgs have tried to give back in anyway that they can. Since the Dawgs moved to Okotoks in 2007, the organization has supported thousands of youth and charitable groups. The Dawgs have given back in many different ways including donation packages and charitable game nights.
Some of the highlights of the Dawgs work has been the funds raised for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The Dawgs started the Pink Day back in 2008 and in that time have raised over $165 000. The game has been an annual success with pink jerseys worn by the players auctioned off in between innings.
Another great event was in 2013. The Dawgs partnered with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Roberto Alomar & Friends Charity Home Run Derby and the Jays Honda Super Camps to raise over $66 000 for flood relief in the High River and Siksika Nation areas.
