Review for Delta County Citizens for Animal Welfare and Shelter (CAWS), Paonia, CO, USA
I moved to Delta County 3 years ago from Raleigh NC. In Raleigh I volunteered to be a foster mom for cats. we took in sick cats, nursed them well and turned them over to the adoption clinic. I loved it. I saw the Rescue Magazine at my Aunts prior to moving here and knew I had to volunteer.
I signed up as a foster mom again and found out that we fostered the animal until adopted. Very different but they weren't sick and they would not be put down. I also volunteered to work in our thrift shop as all the money was to go to the animals. Again I love doing this.
Last August the Board asked me to become a board member which I have done. I hope I can be of help in this area also.
From providing a lost and found service to giving out spay and neuter discount coupons to low-income residents, to taking in abandoned dog and cats and finding loving forever homes, CAWS is an extremely valuable community asset.
CAWS' reputation is widely know in Delta County and beyond. I am proud to be associated with this organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Many animals taken care of and found forever homes for them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Create a permanent building for the animals needing adoption where people can come and see all the animals at one location.
