The Westford pound

     As Dog Warden, I have been placed into the position of “Judge, Jury and Possible Executioner” for some dogs.  This is a grave responsibility which I do not take lightly.  I am  limited in the amount of time I can care for dog while receiving town funds, and the facilities available to me. 

     I took this position in the hope of being able to give some dogs a second chance at life.  I dread the prospect of having to put down any dog, and I hope to do everything possible to avoid that situation. 

     I created a blog site at www.westforddogwarden.blogspot.com/ where residents can easily access the latest info on Lost/Found dogs.  I also keep running logs on formerly impounded dogs who are now my responsibility.   Many Residents have generously donated supplies and equipment to me, in this effort to help out these down on their luck dogs, and I want to give my sincere thanks to one and all! 

My personal philosophy and conviction

    Thanks to all those, who have donated supplies and equipment to the Westford Pound. 

 

 

· Pinebrook Kennels :   My thanks to Chris, an excellent dog trainer with a great deal of experience handling dogs “with attitude”! 

· Peregrine Outfitters, Williston:  Peregrine, Diana Johnson and Jay Morgan.  Their generous donation of  dog gear is extremely welcomed! 

· John “fletch109.geo”,  who made a donation of dog  food to the pound.
