About Us

Where We Started

Organized in 2006 to advocate for a fenced off-leash dog park in the Gig Harbor area. We now dedicate our time to rescuing dogs in need. We also promote responsible dog ownership through presentations and sharing associated materials resources.

Volunteer Work

CHEW is a non-profit volunteer based organization so we need all of the help we can get! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for CHEW, there are many ways you can help. You don't have to be a dog expert; you just have to have some time, a talent or a treasure to share with our organization.

we need your help

As a non-profit organization we rely heavily on the help of other dog lovers. We need foster homes, volunteers, donations, and loving people looking for a new canine family member.
