Gretchen Chamberlain

Treasurer – Although she’s no longer a board member, Gretchen remains AWFs Treasurer. In addition to Treasurer duties, Gretchen manages AWF’s spay/neuter program for the pets of low income families and supervises the group’s PetSmart appearances. She also steps up to the plate whenever there’s a need, from transporting dogs to processing adoption applications to helping at fundraising events.

Gretchen started volunteering for AWF in October 2003 and fostered her first AWF dog in January 2004. Besides saving cats and dogs, her favorite part of AWF is working with such a dedicated, professional, and hard-working volunteer base.

She is dog mom to Ringo and Scooter, former rescue dogs. Scooter now waits for her over the Rainbow Bridge.
