Meet our board of directors
These are the people who keep us going, even when the going gets rough.
Chairman of the Board
Teila's day job has run the gamut from being an office clerk to a full-charge bookkeeper, a Research Analyst and a Systems Analyst. However, Vizslas are Teila's passion. At first, her contributions to CWVRG were through fostering and transporting. In 2012, she was elected to the Board of Directors and little over a year later, became President and C.E.O. Teila comments, "This is yet another new way I can help Vizslas. CWVRG has a wonderful Board of Directors and like me, all we want is only the best for red dogs."
Vice-President, Adoptions Coordinator
Having adopted two Vizslas through CWVRG, I wanted to get more involved with helping the organization. I started doing home visits for potential adopters and started fostering. Almost 5 years later, and I have fostered around 20+ dogs, and have helped CWVRG to find countless other dogs amazing homes. I have made lasting friendships and met amazing people. I have fallen in love a million times with these crazy red heads that have graced my life with their presence, whether for a moment or a lifetime. I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to help this amazing breed. I still go to my “other” job every day (the one that pays the bills), but rescue is my true passion.

In January 2013 I adopted Dodger my first Vizsla. He showed me just how amazing the bond between a rescue Vizsla and his family could grow. When I received a call from the rescue asking if I would foster I knew I needed to help. Not quite 2 years after bringing Dodger into our family we tragically lost our sweet boy. It was at this moment I realized I wanted to do more and honor him by helping as many Vizslas as I possibly could. I became more involved with CWVRG and soon became the foster coordinator.
Director ex-officio, Web Mistress/Graphic Design
Pauli comes to us with over 20 years of web and graphic design experience. She is owned by her second rescue Vizsla, Miss Tori Tornado, adopted of course, from CWVRG. "While I've owned many dogs in the past, Vizslas are the only ones who have truly owned me. CWVRG not only found my heart dog for me, they are also a continual source of advice, support, and friendship. I can't recommend CWVRG any higher."
