Found Animals Gala
On Saturday, November 1, 2014 I was presented with an award from at the Found Animals Gala honoring the work that I am doing with DOG for DOG. Winning this award from Found Animals Foundation is something I will always cherish. I can’t thank Dr. Gary and Alya Michelson, Aimee Gilbreath and everyone else at Found Animal Foundation enough for taking the time to honor me. What really made me have to stop and catch my breath is the sincerity of this team that, at the end of the day, really is the one deserving of all the honor. They are truly making a difference in the lives of millions of pets and people.
When I started DOG for DOG it was based behind the belief that people are naturally good. Groups like Found Animals simply reinforce this belief.
What really humbles me about all of this is the circle of people coming together to impact our world. If you could only see my team and how hard they have worked from day one to make sure DOG for DOG could become a sustainable way to help pets. If you could only see the volunteers that save abused, hungry, and scared animals. If you could only see how many of our loyal followers feed and treat their pets DOG for DOG religiously so the donation items can go to help pets. If you could see all of this like I do, you would wake up every day knowing that as long as there are passionate people like this, like YOU, we will find a way.
So thank you Found Animals Foundation and every single person that has ever taken even a small action to help an animals in a very big way!
