Who in Santee Would You Nominate for the Animal Compassion Awards?


The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA began accepting nominees Tuesday for its second annual Animal Compassion Awards, which honor exceptional animal-lovers.

Residents and businesses that have demonstrated compassion toward animals may submit an nominee application through Jan. 31 at sdhumane.org/AnimalCompassionAwards.

"We see extraordinary examples every day of people who are bettering animal welfare in San Diego and making this a more compassionate society for people and animals," San Diego Humane Society and SPCA President and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman said. "Being able to recognize those contributions is what inspired the idea behind the Animal Compassion Awards."

Nominees will compete for awards in three categories.

The Animal Impact Award recognizes a special relationship between a person and his or her pet; the Humane Hero award will go to an individual, group or business that has raised awareness of animal issues; and the Pet- Friendly Destination award will be given to a business that promotes and supports an animal-friendly environment, according to officials with the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.

The awards will be presented during the annual Telethon for the Animals in March, officials said.
