Bunny: Poo-lution Reduction Liaison
Adopted in Delaware, Bunny relocated to the Delmarva Peninsula in 2018. While she did not graduate per se, only receiving a Certificate of Participation from American K9 Academy, she has however proven to be a hardworking and invaluable crew member at the NWA. Her primary role is serving as a liaison with the canine community to ensure their caretakers pick up after them, so we all have healthy waterways to swim and fish in. When she is not out on the river paddling (or doggie paddling) looking for river grasses, she is in the office making sure the staff and volunteers receive the proper appreciation for their hard work.
