CCCI Welfare is an annually appointed committee of the Chow Chow Club, Inc., the AKC-recognized national parent club of the Chow Chow breed in the U.S. The committee is focused on the well-being of the purebred Chow Chow as a pet in today's society. The 2012 committee chair is Elaine Albert.
The committee is small but its scope is large. Some of our 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 aiding homeless Chow Chows.
The CCCI Welfare Fund provides financial assistance to rescue volunteers to help offset the costs of basic medical services needed to make homeless purebred Chow Chows healthy and ready for placement. These services include spaying or neutering, vaccinations, heartworm testing, heartworm treatment and entropion correction.
The Fund is made up entirely of your donations, sales of merchandise and the proceeds of our fund-raising events. It has no corporate sponsors nor receives any government support.
The Fund has provided several thousand dollars a year in financial assistance to volunteers since it began in 1994. However, it has never had anywhere near enough money to cover all the qualified requests we receive. Most volunteers must wait months while we raise the money they need. We desperately need your support to help us help more Chows!
Donate to the CCCI Welfare Fund! No donation is too small and every little bit helps!
