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.
