Welfare Committee Chair:

Elane Albert
Hauppauge NY 11788


This committee is focused on the well-being of the purebred Chow Chow as a pet in today's society. Some of the committee's functions are:

- to provide information about the Chow Chow breed to Chow owners, the public, animal shelters, and veterinarians.

- to provide a central contact point for people seeking placement for abandoned or unwanted Chows and those who would like to adopt them.

- to maintain a directory of Chow Rescue volunteers.

- to provide information, resources, and support to Chow Rescue volunteers and other individuals assisting homeless Chow Chows.

- to administer the Welfare Fund. The Welfare Fund provides financial assistance to rescue volunteers to help offset the costs of medical services needed to make homeless purebred Chow Chows healthy and ready for placement in new homes.

For more information, even more articles on the training and care of Chow Chows, resources for rescue volunteers, and descriptions of rescued Chows for adoption across the U.S., visit the Chow Chow Welfare Web Site
