DELTA COUNTY CITIZENS FOR ANIMAL WELFARE AND SHELTER (CAWS)
April 13, 2011
CAWS serves a real need in Delta County. The only county animal shelter is 40 miles away, so CAWS' intake, fostering and placement are desperately needed to deal with all the stray and unwanted pets in its service area. CAWS has paid for spaying and neutering hundreds of dogs and cats also, thus preventing even more unwanted animals. It's a terrific organization and one that I'm proud to be associated with.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the long line of people waiting to get the free spay and neuter coupons we were providing -- this is a poor county and most of the people could not have otherwise afforded to get their pets fixed.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make sure it had enough money to build the shelter facility that is so desperately needed for Paonia, Hotchkiss and surrounding areas.
Volunteer & I edit RESCUE Magazine, a quarterly magazine that supports the mission of CAWS.
