Six years ago, I lost a beloved dog when she decided to go deer hunting in the vast woods behind our home. Darcy was a true Beagle who would follow her nose as far as her little heart would take her.

My husband and I live in a small rual community that has very little in the way of animal control services, let alone an animal shelter. We felt sure we'd never see Darcy again.

Three and one-half weeks later, we received a phone call from someone who found Darcy and called CAWS to let them know. Of course, Bob and I had registered her as missing with CAWS immediatly after she'd gone.

This amazing public service was my introduction to CAWS and the reason I started volunteering for the organization.

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. As a current board member, and past president, I've seen this organization grow from a small group of concerned citizens to a very professional and well-run organization with long-term goals including the building of a countywide animal shelter were one does not currently exist.

I am extremely proud to serve this organization as a volunteer and have made a life-long commitment to continue to support CAWS in its vital mission.
