DAWG working for pets

Cherie Owen


My name is Cherie Owen. I am the founder and a current director of the Douglas Animal Welfare Group and I have put my heart and soul into this organization since I started it in August 2000. Every step of the way, since our inception, this all-volunteer group has done its best to be above reproach in its operation.

The Douglas County residents have watched us carefully and endorsed what we do by supporting us in a variety of ways. When financial support is received, if it is designated for a specific purpose, our accounting system sets it up for that specific purpose. When the donation has no designation it goes into our general fund to be used as needed. At monthly general meetings we discuss the business of the organization and a majority vote decides any action to be taken.

Our Foster Program, which has been in place for many years, is vital to the health and welfare of the dogs and cats with which we work. We administer it based on the foster procedures that we have always used. Without the wonderful caring people who volunteer to go above and beyond for these animals DAWG would not be as successful as it is.

Thank you so much residents of Douglas County for your continuing support. All of us hard-working volunteers know we could not do it without you.
