This award goes to a person (or persons) who has devoted his or her time and energy to dog-related community service. Last year the award went to Lindsey A. Wolko and the Center for Pet Safety, an organization that performs safety tests on dog equipment such as harnesses and crates. Club members who have been active in community education about any aspect of dogs or someone who has headed up a project or service that benefits the dogs and owners or breeders of a community or the Commonwealth are eligible.Though the nomination must be made by a VFDCB club, club member, or individual member, the nominee can be anyone who has made a difference.
The award will be presented at the VFDCB annual luncheon and awards meeting in November, which the winner will attend as guest of the Federation.
Please be sure all club members know about this award and that they are invited to submit nominees.
