It has been my pleasure to serve as the treasurer for CAWS for the past three years. In that time I have seen significant growth in the organization. I have watched first-hand as we moved from the "living room to the board room" so to speak. In a partnership with the town of Delta, CAWS has recently taken over the management of the Delta town shelter (now the CAWS Adoption Center). We are now one step closer to our goal of a county-wide shelter!

It has been my pleasure to serve as the treasurer for CAWS for the past two years. In that time I have seen significant growth in the organization. I have watched first-hand as we moved from the "living room to the board room" so to speak. Delta County has no animal control program, and CAWS helps fill an incredible void in the community. Serving animals and families is the number one goal of the organization. With the recent establishment of a grant-seeking program spearheaded by a professional grant writer, I can't wait to see the great things this organization will do in the future.

CAWS has rescued & adopted 100's of dogs and cats since their inception. I am proud to be a founder, former board member & volunteer for this wonderful non-profit animal rescue organization. My husband & I have fostered 80 plus dogs & found wonderful forever homes for these sweet animals. CAWS' Spay & Neuter program offers free or discount coupons to our community & also helps those who are in need of food & vet help. CAWS is well respected in our community.

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.

CAWS reaches out to everyone in Delta County and works with any other rescue group that want it to. They take animals from rescue groups who have to put down dogs and cats when they run out of room and find homes for them.

They also stand up for the dogs and cats by posting rewards for leads to dog fighter and other abuse.

Being retired I have many opportunities to volunteer but chose CAWS because of the many services the provide to help dogs and cats.
