Milestone: Town & Country broker gives to WAG

With a goal to give back this year, real estate broker Karen Willcutt with Town & Country Real Estate made her first donations of 2020 to help some four-legged friends.

On June 10, she gave a $1,000 check to Sequim’s Welfare for Animals Guild’s (WAG) ranch manager Mel Marshall, and board president Barbara Brabant at WAG’s Half Way Home Ranch.

Willcutt said she promised to give $500 to one of five Sequim-area charities for every escrow closed on a home, with the first new homeowners both choosing WAG.

“Everyone is hurting, and it’s the least I can do,” she said.

Marshall said since the COVID-19 pandemic has been in place financial donations have been down to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit all-dog, no-kill group. As of last week, the group had 12 dogs and seven puppies at its ranch, eight dogs in foster homes and one in its prison treatment program.

Willcutt said she made the decision to donate a portion of her sales prior to the pandemic, but for now plans to continue the donations indefinitely.

New homeowners through Willcutt can choose between Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, Sequim Food Bank, Olympic Theatre Arts, Sequim High Band Boosters, and WAG.

Donations are tax- deductible.
