Dotty Ann Harding
My name is Dotty Ann Harding, President & CEO of OCPAW (Onslow County Partners for Animal Welfare, Inc) since 2009. An all-volunteer nonprofit animal welfare liaison that emphasizes providing low-cost PawsAbility spay/neuter vouchers for companion animals & feral cats for Onslow County residents. Our support comes from personal donations, fundraisers, and grants. The goal is to help our residents spay/neuter their pets to lower the cost of suffering and euthanasia in our Shelter. Previously in life, I was an RN, owned and managed a flower shop and a nursery/landscaping company was President of a Chamber of Commerce, and a Rotary member. I travel to the NJ Coast to visit three children, two grandchildren, and other family members. I love the Sneads Ferry community, where I enjoy my coastal home with my three dogs, boating, and kayaking.
First and foremost, I am a Child of God and proud to be an American. I grew-up as an Air Force brat, so learning to stay in one place has been hard, because I love to travel. I settled in North Carolina with my son a little over 20 years ago and 15 of those years have been in the Surf City/Hampstead area. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, walker/runner, and I am really enjoying the retired life. I am a rescue mom to two beautiful collies. My Granddaughters are my world. I have written several songs for Bound by Faith (local dispersed Christian band). I have written a book but I keep rewriting it so I have not had it published yet. I wrote my first article for Topsail Times that was published August 12, 2022, and I look forward to writing many more.
