Over Three years have gone by since our dear friend, mentor and fellow Chow Chow advocate Dianne Watson was tapped by God and left us. As most of you know, HCCC was formed in honor of Dianne for her many years of service and her passion for helping the breed she loved so much.
At the 3 year mark of Dianne's passing, we rescued and adopted 3 senior chows in a span of 3 weeks. Meanwhile, a canvas bag honoring Dianne’s passion for rescue was lovingly being crafted by one of our volunteers as a surprise. When we saw the finished bag we were in awe and humbled. At the same time we wondered about providing this bag to others for a dual purpose; provide a beautiful creation for others to enjoy and proudly display their chow love and secondly, to dedicate the proceeds from the purchase of the bag to assist those in adopting older chows.
So we asked ourselves, "Can we do this? Can we encourage chow lovers to adopt a senior shelter chow with no adoption fee if we provide funds to assist with senior care such as providing initial vetting and medication?" And we decided, heck YES! Dianne would love this idea and we have nothing to lose - but our senior shelter chows sure do. Therefore, the Senior Chow Fund was born and the proceeds from each canvas bag fund the account.
In 2018, we launched a new logo & created a new logo tote/beach bag to continue to support our senior chows in need. Each bag has our new logo embroidered. The bag is available with either a black border or red / navy border. Bag is 19" wide by 14" high with a 10" handle drop.
Please help us honor Dianne and directly help Senior Chows by purchasing your bag.
