The Welfare committee focuses on the well-being of the purebred Chow Chow as a pet in today's society. The committee is small but its scope is large. Some of its 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 Welfare Committee has its own website at http://www.chowwelfare.com
The Welfare Fund
The CCCI Welfare Fund provides financial assistance to rescue volunteers to help offset the costs of the basic medical services needed to make homeless purebred Chow Chows healthy and ready for adoption. 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.
